Top Apps for PE Teachers - Part 28 | The P.E Geek

Top Apps for PE Teachers - Part 28 | The P.E Geek | www.pecentral.org | Scoop.it

"This truly innovative mobile app allows users to turn their device into a speed camera and see exactly  how fast they kick a football. The app guides your through the process of setting up the kick so that the app is capable of accurate detection. You will firstly start by selecting if you are right or left footed and then the app provides a frame overlay that you must position the ball over your resting soccer ball. Once setup its all up to the kicker and the app to track the overall speed, angle and estimated kick distance. It even records your kick and replays it back to you in super slow motion."
