The Vaavud wind meter allows you to gather precise and reliable wind speed measurements from your exact location, using your iOS or Android smartphone. Vaavud is great for everyone, from building engineers to paragliders. The utility can help you plan your trip, choose the right gear, and even allow you to alert your friends of the current conditions before they depart. Because of third party integration being a pivotal aspect of Vaavuds strategy other apps and services are welcomed and can tap into the cutting edge Vaavud technology,. The company has already partnered with Weendy – a US based start-up that has created the worlds fastest growing social network for real-time weather reports.
Vaavud started out as a Kickstarter Project and successfully reached its £20,000 ($31,022) pledge goal with over 900 backers. The appeal has proven to be much broader than to the kite surfers, wind surfers and sailors Vaavud originally targeted.
