Blast Motion Signs Pro BMX Dirt Rider Mike “Hucker” Clark as Latest Action Sports Ambassador
(Carlsbad, Calif., – May 15, 2015) – Blast Motion, an industry innovator focused on redefining the digital experience with its wearable motion capture technologies, today announced its most recent action sports ambassador, pro BMX dirt rider Mike “Hucker” Clark. He will be using the Blast Action Replay product during his rides and in competitions to capture, analyze and share metric infused video highlights with his social media followers.
“Hucker’s unique style and natural ability to throw down insane trick variations make for some incredibly compelling content,” said Donovan Prostrollo, senior director of marketing, Blast Motion. “With support for both the iPhone camera and GoPro ® action camera, Hucker can easily capture and instantly replay his ride metrics or share video highlights to social media right from the track with no post processing or video editing necessary.”
“So much of riding is about your gear and how a trick ‘looks’. Blast’s technology allows me to capture ride metrics in real-time and see the results so I know where to improve,” said Clark. “I’m stoked to use the Blast app and motion sensor to help perfect new tricks and to share awesome adaptive slow-mo video clips with my social media followers.”
The Blast Action Replay motion sensor turns an iPhone camera into a new generation of metric infused mobile action cameras. It can also be used with the GoPro ® Hero 3 and 3+ action cameras to instantly capture and automatically create video highlights based on your actions. Blast Motion’s exclusive Smart Video CaptureTM technology allows users to see their activity in up to full 1080p HD quality with metrics – such as acceleration, vertical height, hang time, and rotation – overlaid directly onto the video clip. This gives users exceptional detail and insight into their performance. Blast’s Smart Video Capture makes it easy to share video playback and highlights via social media.
With the introduction of Adaptive Slow-Mo functionality, users no longer have to ma
nually edit and set the slow motion start and end points after watching the video. By combining the Blast precision motion sensor and Blast’s patented Smart Video Capture™ technology, the Blast app automatically detects a user’s actions and creates a series of video highlights. Adaptive slow-mo allows the Blast app to automatically slow down and speed up video playback based on a user’s actions, changing the way users see the fine details of their actions. No user editing or playback intervention is required to experience this groundbreaking functionality. The result is a very personal experience that makes analyzing video fun and highly shareable.
Hucker’s high-flying tricks and mesmerizing stunts are now easily quantified with Blast’s precision motion sensor. In the following video highlight, you’ll see actual iPhone 6 Plus video footage captured and shared in-app, featuring adaptive slow-mo technology, providing Mike with even greater insight into every trick.
