Crowdsource Perfect Weather with Vaavud

 

Yearning for a way to share precise wind information from remote surf spots, a Copenhagen-based trio of windsurfers created Vaavud: a compact wind meter that plugs into any cell phone headphone jack, allowing users to communicate weather conditions through a corresponding mobile app.

Quickly finding an audience outside the surfing community, Vaavud has taken off among scientists, pilots, and even farmers, who praise the technology for making weather analysis a breeze.
