The Vaavud wind speed meter has no electronic components of its own
The Vaavud provides readings in line with those of a dedicated anemometer (wind speed meter)
Kitesurfers are one group who might find the Vaavud useful
Trying the Vaavud at sea
The Vaavud has been tested and calibrated in the wind tunnel at The Technical University of Denmark
The Vaavud plugs into the phone’s headphone jack, but that’s simply to hold it in place – it will work even if unplugged and held near the phone
While the average person may not care too much about the current wind speed, it’s very important to the likes of windsurfers, kitesurfers, and sailors. Although official monitoring stations do provide readings, those stations aren’t always particularly close to the locations where these people do their respective things. That’s why Copenhagen-based Vaavud has created its smartphone-paired wind meter, of the same name. Interestingly, the plug-in device itself contains no electronics.
