Blast Motion introduces Blast Golf: world’s first real-time motion capture technology with video enhancements for full swing driving and putting
Mobile App Feature Upgrade Combines Full Swing Driving and Putting with Real-Time Motion Metrics and Smart Video Capture
(Carlsbad, Calif., – October 13, 2014) – Blast Motion, an industry innovator focused on redefining the digital experience with its wearable motion capture technologies, today announced Blast Golf. The latest addition to Blast Motion’s suite of sports and active life motion capture solutions, Blast Golf, combines full swing driving and putting with real-time motion metrics and smart video capture. Blast Golf automatically captures video highlights of your swing with overlaid performance metrics that are immediately sharable through email, messaging and social media, delivering an industry-leading innovation for golfers of all ages and skill levels. Blast Golf is available today as a free app update for all Blast Putt customers.
“The introduction of full swing golf metrics, combined with smart video capture technology to automatically identify, capture and create video highlights, enhances the value for our customers well beyond a basic swing analysis tool,” said Donovan Prostrollo, senior director of marketing, Blast Motion. “We’re combining motion metrics with video to create a very personal user experience where golfers can literally ‘see’ the mechanics of their swing, and socially share their long and short game in a whole new way.”
Weighing less than half an ounce, the Blast Motion precision motion sensor securely and discretely attaches to most regulation putters and drivers. Blast Motion’s proprietary algorithms capture natural motion, allowing it to intelligently understand the difference between real and practice strokes. Blast Golf uses Bluetooth® Smart technology to transmit accurate and meaningful analytics to smartphones or tablets during practice or play.
