New Phone App To Help Golf Swing
By Kickntrue on 10/8/09
Do you trust your golf instruction to your iPhone's accelerometer? If so- there may soon be an app for that.
By the end of this year, Fujitsu plans to offer a cell phone application that will analyze your golf swing, pinpoint problems and show you how to correct them. ETGA Golf Lesson will be on sale in Japan later this year, the company said. So far, Fujitsu will not identify what phone the app will work with.Oops.. it may not be the iPhone (yes it will be).
Umm.. this is, crap, what's the word? Retarded? No... too harsh and demeaning. Stupid? No, too trite. Recockulous? Yep- that's the one I was looking for.
Seriously- if the Wii can't truly mimic your golf swing to the point of being able to help you work on your game- you really think holding your phone will? The real problem is- for $1 it would be fun to try and be a fun app to mess with, but they are going to try to make it a serious lesson and charge an impossible price. I always tell my wife- I should be the person every movie studio comes to before starting production on a film, to ask me if I think it's a good idea. Do you know how much money I could've saved the makers of Gigli?

Sounds fun! i will reserve judgment
Based on the video you don't swing the phone. Looks like phone goes on the back of your belt and is based on your torso movement. It seems like from that location it would be fairly easy to give some positive feedback about rotation and angle of your back etc.
@klangdon.. "watch the video..." I knew I forgot to do something before posting this.
I'd wind up throwing my phone out of bounds or in a pond.
i also would have accepted "Redonkulous"
Redonkulous (Adjective) Significantly more absurd than ridiculous to an almost impossible extreme; without possibility of serious consideration.
@jessehunt85- I was between redonk and recock- but I like how recock has just an extra bit of vulgarity to it- without being over the top.
