Race Sense phone app

Phone App

From Slashdot:
"Alexander George writes about a new app that takes the data from a smartphone's accelerometers, GPS, and inclinometer to plot information for braking force, lean angles, speed, and on-track location onto Google Maps to shave precious milliseconds off each lap time in motorcycle races. Race Sense is designed to be a useful tool for someone who races for a living and a very fun toy for those who just like to brag about what lean angle they got at their ride day, and what top speed they reached down the main straight. Australian Grand Prix motorcycle road racer Anthony West provided much of the R&D that went into tweaking the app. 'With sponsorship's so hard to find and I need another way to survive. I spent some of my own money developing it with an Italian guy who also likes to ride himself, and who writes programs,' says West who designed Race Sense to fulfill the needs of a genuine MotoGP racer. 'Sometimes it's one second [separating] 20 people. If you adjust one little thing thinking about something in one corner you can lose four places."

It doesn't seem to be released yet.

I picked up the Optrix video pro app and wide angle lens case. It shoots HD video and overlays the GPS and accelerometer data onto the video.

Everyone has the right to be offended but just because you're offended doesn't mean you're right!

Im trying to find an app (android) that records all that data in real time, but without the video so I can overlay it on top of my gopro later.
