Launches on the global crowdfunding platform Kickstarter.
NEW YORK, NY, April 26, 2023 – Sports tech startup, xVic SPOTEC just launched AIMING VIEW on Kickstarter, which measures accurate golf aiming angles with 3D motion sensors.
To hit a great shot in a golf game, you need to aim accurately. However, aiming is not easy even for golfers with 10 years of experience, let alone beginner golfers. If you don’t aim the golf club properly towards the target direction, the ball will go to the wrong direction, even if your swing is excellent. This makes it difficult to achieve a good score when you take more strokes than necessary, so it is important to aim well from the beginning.
AIMING VIEW, which is equipped with 3D motion sensors, detects the club’s movement in three dimensions and displays the optimal aiming angle as a number. It can help improve game performance not only for beginner golfers but also for those who find it difficult to visually identify aiming points due to curves and obstacles on the course. Especially when you need a skilled aiming technique, such as in short approach shots like pitch shots, using this product can help you hit a perfect shot.
The usage is simple. Insert the product into the hole of the club grip, aim the club to make the target and clubface in a straight line, press the button to zero set, then check the angle on the display in the address set-up position, and simply swing. It is convenient to use because it does not need to be linked to a smartphone device.
The optimal aiming suggested by the AIMING VIEW is to align the angle at which the clubface and ball touch to 90 degrees. However, when hitting a pitch shot, you can adjust the aiming angle depending on the shot you are hitting. For example, it is recommended to swing when the angle is between 88 and 92 degrees for a straight pitch shot. If you are a golfer with a high handicap due to over par or double par, you can use this product to improve your score.
The 3D motion sensor technology applied in AIMING VIEW is an advanced technology sensor also used in unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV), drones, and smartphones. It measures the movement of the club in 3D by embedding Gyro Sensor, Acceleration Sensor, and Geomagnetic Sensor on a single micro-sized chip. It sends signals 1,000 times per second and measures with a precision of 0.2 degrees, resulting in high accuracy.
Furthermore, the product is ultra-lightweight at 0.42oz, which is only the size of a quarter, and does not interfere with your swing when attached to the club grip. It fits perfectly on all types of clubs, including drivers, irons, wedges, and putters. It can be fully charged in 30 minutes with a regular 5V charger and can be used for up to 8 hours. So you don’t have to worry about the battery running out during a round of golf, even if you leave it on throughout 18 holes.
The ultra-lightweight aim finder AIMING VIEW, which will help improve your golf skills, just launched on Kickstarter at a discounted price. More information can be found on the Kickstarter official website.
