Felix Baumgartner Could Have Used the Vidometer App

When Felix Baumgartner jumped off a helium balloon at 128,100 feet (video embedded above), he could have used the new Vidometer app for the iPhone to videotape his world-record-breaking skydive.

Made by the company behind the hardshell and waterproof smartphone Hitcase, the new app will overlay speed, altitude, horizon level, tilt and G-force meters on your HD iPhone video. We’ve embedded a screenshot below–is this something you can use in your life?

Check it out: “When you are out Mountain Biking, Skiing, Snowboarding, Skateboarding, Hiking, Sky Diving, Cruising, Running, Dirt Biking, or whatever – don’t forget to take Vidometer along for the ride! Vidometer can be used as a dashcam, HUD, a companion for your GoPro footage, and much more. Vidometer uses the iPhone’s built in sensors such as the accelerometer, GPS, and gyroscope to build a custom and accurate graphical overlay.”
