CARLSBAD, California — Blast Motion, an information company that provides performance insights for human movement, today announced Blast Vision. By harnessing the power of computer vision, you now have the power to visualize the results of your baseball, softball, or golf swing using your iPhone (6S or newer) or iPad (Pro or newer) camera. Blast Vision accurately calculates and displays your launch angle, exit velocity / ball speed, and estimated carry distance, providing you with live results and voice feedback. You’ll have the same data that professionals have, in the palm of your hands, at a fraction of the cost of a professional launch monitor.
Analyze Sessions: Visualize the results of your swing as you practice and see where you hit the ball with interactive spray charts.
Capture & Replay: Using just your camera, the app auto captures and clips video overlaid with metrics, displaying real-time results.
Train & Improve: Review your launch angle, exit velocity / ball speed, and estimated ball flight distance. Track your performance and improve.
“We’re seeing an intersection of sports and technology where much of the functionality of expensive training solutions can be delivered in the palm of your hand at a fraction of the cost,” said Michael Fitzpatrick, Blast Motion, CEO and co-founder of Blast Motion. “Blast is the first company to provide both pre-impact swing analysis (sensor) and post-impact swing results (Blast Vision) to give players and coaches a complete view of their swing. All from the convenience and portability of a smartphone.”
To use the Blast Vision app, simply place your iPhone or iPad on a tripod, set up the camera, and hit a few balls into a net in your backyard, batting cage, golf range, or golf club fitting facility. When you’re done with your session, you’ll find each video individually clipped with your metrics overlaid on top to show you a visual representation of each hit. You can review your metrics, replay your video clips in slow-mo, check your ball flight spray chart to see where you hit the ball, and save your best clips to your camera roll or send to a coach for feedback. Best of all, there’s no charge to try it out for the first two weeks. After that, you can purchase the app and unlock the full functionality for only $9.99 (in-app purchase).
