New Scientist – SwingReader, from start-up tech firm UberSense, lets amateurs load videos of their own swing and compare it with footage of professional golfers to see where they are going wrong. In December, computer vision algorithms will be added to the app so that individual objects in the frame – such as the golf club’s head – are tracked automatically.
SwingReader is a feature-rich, easy-to-use swing analyzer for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod. SwingReader will help you analyze your body mechanics and improve your game. Golfers can use SwingReader to lower your score and baseball/softball players can hit and pitch better.
SportsCam is a feature-rich, easy-to-use recorder and motion analyzer on the iPhone, for all sports such as tennis, basketball, football, soccer, snowboarding, skiing, wakeboarding, skateboarding, and many more.
