I have always been a number and statistics freak and there has always been a fascination for devices which would show me statistics so taking a cue from Kunal’s blog. I also put forward a demand.
I want a watch or any such mobile device which could measure the speed at which i am going and the distance which i have covered in particular time duration.
This is most useful when you are walking coz if you are in a vehicle then you can know your speed by glancing at the speedometer.I guess this can be implemented by measuring the speed of wind which is striking the watch which i am wearing on my wrist. You can stand still for some time before starting your motion so that the watch can measure the default wind velocity and then do appropriate manipulations. While walking people generally walk two ways either with their hands swinging by their side going in a pendulum like motion or with their hands stationary, if you are stationary then its no problem but in the other case, we can do some experiments and make some algorithm to calculate the speed in such case, it wont be a difficult task.
These days wrist watches come with facilities to see all type of statistics like altitude, pressure, temperature, geographic coordinates. This feature can also be added to the ever growing list.
I dunno whether this feature is commercially viable or its only me who needs such a thing, but one thing is for sure, after I get a job and am well settled and all. One day for sure i will try to build such a watch. Lets see if it happens.. 😛
