The rugged, electronicless Vaavud wind meter Mk2 turns your smartphone into a high-tech meteorological tool.
The Vaavud Mk2 design is inspired partly by professional cup anemometers, and partly by a Danish developed wind turbine with vertical blades. An asymmetrical rotor accelerates slightly when the largest surface is hit by the wind. The built-in sensor makes 40.000 measurements per second allowing the app to detect even the slightest variations in wind speed. This high-frequency signal can be used to derive both wind speed and direction.
If sand or dirt gets inside the Vaavud wind meter it can easily be cleaned out with water.
And The Vaavud wind meter can take quite a beating – it is built for action!
The Vaavud app gives you a clear overview of average, actual and maximum wind speed, as well as a real-time graph – in fact, the first real-time graph in the world on a hand held anemometer!
And you can scroll and pinch-zoom on the graph if you want to taker a closer look at something.
The unit of measure can be changed on the fly by simply tapping the screen. (Available units: m/s, Kmh, mph, Kts and Bft.)
New features will constantly be added to the app. A live map, measurement history will be available soon, and much more will follow.
The Vaavud wind meter works with all iPhones from 4 and onwards, and all iPads from 2 and onwards, running on iOS 6 or 7.
With regards to Android phones, we have currently confirmed it to work with Samsung Galaxy S2, S3 and S4.
