Took PocketLab to Great America in San Jose for some rollercoaster data collecting. The Acceleration and Altitude data are for the roller coaster shown in the picture.
PocketLab Voyager is in the middle of a coil of wire. The rest of the wire is also wrapped in a coil, and a magnet is used to induce a current through the coil/wire.
PocketLab user Ryan Hollister attached his PocketLab One to a drone to measure it's altitude. The PocketLab calculates altitude using its barometric pressure sensor.
PocketLab fits perfectly as a payload for an Estes rocket! Great way to quantify launch acceleration, free fall, and altitude.
People can't seem to stop fidgeting with Fidget Spinners, so they might as well learn some science along the way!
PocketLab One on a journey through Splash Mountain. Here it survives a couple drops while measuring acceleration. Video was recorded using the PocketLab Video function in the app.
The PocketLab One is tied to the end of a string through one of the loops on either end of the device and angular velocity and acceleration are measured as the PocketLab is spun in a circle using the string.
