Hangtimer from The Dropzone Corporation
By Greg Frank
A revolution in trash talk‚Äî finally, someone has put the same technology in your Wii on your hip.
The tri-axis accelerometer in the Hangtimer measures your airtime to the 1/100th of a second, helping you separate the fame from the lame in the claim game.
The sensitivity settings offer five options and with enough memory to record your last ten jumps, the Hangtimer is more than capable of capturing the air you catch top to bottom at Sierra-at-Tahoe.
It also totals your airtime, and highlights your longest airtime of the day.¬† Passing it among your friends offers plenty of fun as you have proof that your frontside-3-to-edge-catch only took .68 seconds.
The Hangtimer is also a truly humbling experience, as you push yourself as you learn that you rarely spend two seconds in the air.
The multifunction sports watch was created by the Dropzone Corporation, which was co-founded by a former X-box developer, Jeff Alexander and another high-tech product development engineer, Ted Griebling.
The device also features a clock, stopwatch with lap time, temperature gauge, time and date feature, a lighted display, a carabineer style clip, and is water resistant to three metres.
