Compass Eye App for iPhone and iPad Helps Sailors Safely Navigate Stormy Seas

Compass Eye App for iPhone and iPad Helps Sailors Safely Navigate Stormy Seas











Compass Eye

WYE Valley, UK (PRWEB) December 05, 2011

Sailors can now use their iPhones as a multi-functional bearing compass that replaces the need for compass binoculars and professional bearing compasses for explorations and excursions. Electric Pocket Ltd announces the launch of Compass Eye, an exciting new nautical Augmented Reality app for iPhone and iPad from the company known for such popular apps as BugMe! and Ringo.

Compass Eye delivers on the promise of a compass that doesn’t change its reading when the boat rocks and enables sailors to take compass bearings with their iPhone or iPad. Compass Eye replaces the need of Compass Binoculars and Professional Bearing Compasses for explorations and excursions on land, sea and even in the air (it’s fully gimballed)!

Compass Eye was designed by a skipper for use by sailors. Inspiration struck Steve Bennett, CEO of Electric Pocket, during a particularly treacherous sea crossing with a RYA Yacht Master Instructor when keeping a fixed bearing on a distant vessel proved invaluable. He realized that the iPhone could serve as a simple multi-functional bearing compass that could provide several essential functions, such as collision avoidance and safe passage limits.

“The tide was ebbing across our path at 4-5 Kts and a very large Dredger, the City of Cardiff, lay at anchor approximately six miles from our destination, Penarth. With a maximum boat speed of only 4 Kts in the rough wind over tide conditions, it was vital that we passed as close downstream of the dredger as possible so that we could still make our destination without being swept out to sea and having to wait for the next flood. Keeping a constant bearing with the dredger and then the back of the dredger as we got closer was a simple but extremely effective and safe way of navigating.”

Compass Eye uses the iPhone or iPad camera to let sailors view their course and overlays a compass display on it. This clever implementation of Augmented Reality, including up-to 8x zoom, lets sailors set a variety of bearings for avoiding collisions with other boats or for keeping a safe passage into harbor with one easy tap.

All bearings are color-coded in line with IALA standards. Sailors can then watch the horizon and take time-stamped, GPS located photos with their bearings marked on them. With Compass Eye, users can look back on the photos for easy logging reference, or the photos can be tweeted using the Twitter integration to let people chart their sailing adventure and enjoy the view.

Unlike the majority of compass apps which can be difficult to use as they need to be held steady, level and close to horizontal, Compass Eye works correctly in all orientations and angles. When the iOS device is laid flat it will show the whole compass rose and heading and current position overlayed on a real-time Google Earth Map (N.B. the live map view requires an internet connection). During its beta stage the app was put to the test at sea on voyages across the Bristol Channel, one of the most hazardous areas of water to navigate in the world.

Compass Eye Main Features:


    Real time, accuracy in all orientations
    Compass overlaid on live camera view
    8x Digital zoom
    Back, transit, or collision bearing marker
    Draggable red and green bearing lines
    Triangulation bearings
    Optional time, date and GPS location information.
    Magnetic or True North setting with variation based on location
    Live map view in horizontal mode. The map can be changed to show normal, satellite and hybrid views or turned off.
    Photo and position sharing via email and Twitter.

Technical Details:

Based on an iPhone 4 camera the image specification at full zoom compares favorably with a 7×50 pair of binoculars:

*Field of Vision at 1000m at 8x: 122m

*Angle of view at 8x: approx 7 degrees

*Low ISO 80 or better.

Version: 1.21 of Compass Eye is available now for $ 4.99 in the AppStore.

Device Requirements: Compatible with iOS devices (iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPad 2 Wi-Fi, and iPad 2 Wi-Fi + 3G). Requires iOS 4.0 or later device with back facing Camera, Magnetometer and accelerometer (GPS is optional).

Size: 2.4 MB

Luxury Watch Brand Rolex Releases New Line at BaselWorld 2012.

Luxury Watch Brand Rolex Releases New Line at BaselWorld 2012.











Rolex Among the Trusted Brands of Luxury


Beverly Hills, CA (PRWEB) April 21, 2012

Rolex impresses the crowds and top luxury watch designers at Basel 2012All of these cutting edge timepieces released by Rolex demonstrate new essential concepts: invention, new functions and groundbreaking design.

The Sky-Dweller; progression combined with continuity, in three legendary models from the brand’s most recent technological and aesthetic developments the Submariner, the Yacht-Master and the Datejust II; and imagination, with models enhanced by sophisticated gem settings and modern jewelled dials _ the Cosmograph Daytona, the Datejust, the Datejust Lady 31, the Lady-Datejust, the Day-Date and the Day-Date II.

The Oyster Perpetual Sky-Dweller is developed with world travellers in mind with a dual time zone and 24-hour display. It is loaded with an annual calendar that routinely adjusts the date at the end of months with thirty and thirty-one days as well as a functional interface for setting the watch: the patented rotatable ring command bezel. The 42mm case houses the completely new calibre 9001 with a 72-hour power reserve, and is offered in 18-carat yellow, white or rose gold.

The archetype of the divers’ watch, the Oyster Perpetual Submariner is now loaded with a black ceramic Cerachrom bezel inlay, a dial with full-size Chromalight hour markers and hands for extraordinary legibility in the dark, and a 40mm case in corrosion-resistant stainless steel. It is fitted with a new solid-link oyster bracelet with an oysterlock safety clasp enabling adjustment for comfortable wear over a scuba diving suit. Its calibre 3130 is now outfitted with a paramagnetic blue Parachrom hairspring.

The new 40mm Oyster Perpetual Yacht-Master in Rolesium, a blend of steel and platinum, is an ultimate watch for sailing aficionados. Sporting a navy blue dial, the watch comes with a bidirectional rotatable bezel in platinum with elevated numerals. The Chromalight display ensures remarkable legibility in the dark. It features a case in stainless steel on an oyster bracelet with an oysterlock safety clasp.

The Oyster Perpetual Datejust II is readily available for the first time in an all-steel version with a smooth bezel. With its 41mm case, the date is magnified by a crystal cyclops lens. This latest version is equipped with an oyster bracelet and a new silver-colour dial with large luminescent hour markers.

A stylish feminine variation, the new 36mm Oyster Perpetual Datejust, in 18-carat Everose gold contains a black lacquer dial with a fashionable motif set with two hundred sixty two diamonds. Its bezel is set with 60 baguette-cut diamonds, and 120 brilliant-cut diamonds around the edge.

The jeweled model of the Oyster Perpetual Cosmograph Daytona in 18-carat yellow or white gold has its bezel completely set with sapphires in rainbow colors. The lugs and crown guard of the case are arranged with sparkling diamonds. The black lacquer dial is decorated with diamond-set hour markers and gold crystal counters.

Lastly, an array of women’s luxury watches enhanced with new gem-set dials: hour markers with baguette-cut rubies at six and nine o’clock on the 36mm Oyster Perpetual Day-Date model; or similar hour markers on the 41mm Oyster Perpetual Day-Date II with a bezel set with baguette-cut diamonds; and rubies again on gem-set ladies’ models, such as the 26mm Oyster Perpetual Lady-Datejust in yellow gold; or on the 31mm Oyster Perpetual Datejust Lady 31 whose dial encased by a bezel brilliantly set with 48 brilliant-cut diamonds, has a large 6 and 9, each set with sixteen rubies.

Located in Geneva, Rolex is a premier brand in the Swiss watch industry. Rolex has been a leader in the progression of the wristwatch since as early as 1905, with a record of major watchmaking technology, such as the Oyster, the very first waterproof wristwatch, born in 1926, and the Perpetual rotor self-winding mechanism, released in 1931. Rolex has registered more than 400 patents in the course of its history.

Yacht-master-men’s Classic Wrist Watch

Yacht-Master is a new series from Rolex which was not produced until 1992. And until 1997, Rolex launched Rolesium Yacht-Master (ref.16622)—Rolesium is a name created by Rolex, which means the stainless steel on the surface of white gold. Obviously the material of Rolesium attracted a lot of attention from many people and soon it became famous. Although Yacht-Master is not so shortage as Daytona, The supply lags behind the demand, and the margin between supply and demand is increasing day by day.

Yacht-Master is also the first wristwatch which has Rolex Maxi Dial in Oyster Professional series, named from the bigger markers and hands in the dial of Oyster Professional series.

 

Undoubtedly, Yacht-Master is a classic mens watch, which is a symbol of status and elegance.

Bigger markers and hands, means more shining materials could be painted and the corresponding nightlight effect will be better. Yacht-Master has the best visibility out of my Rolex collectors. When I am watching a movie in the cinema, it is easy for me to see the time, but other Rolex does not have such a feature. I expect that Rolex will apply the technology of Maxi Dial to all the Oyster Professional watches.

The bezel and dial of Yacht-Master are very good. They are all made of white gold, and the dial is protected by sapphire. Initially I worried about that the double directions rotary would be easy to be scratched, but later I found that it did not need to worry about this at all. The red second hand and the red words on the dial makes me think of Submariner and Sea-Dweller which also have red words.

Compared with Sea-Dweller, the case and spring bar of Yacht-Master are rounder and more shinning, actually the case is quite similar with Daytona. Bracelet of Yacht-Master is similar with Daytona and the middle connection is solid (unlike other Oyster Professional which is hollow) and its polish is quite beautiful. If in the future Yacht-Master will be short of something, that must be the watch button, like GMT Master and Explorer II, the button Yacht-Master uses is rotary locked button. I get to know from other watch lovers that they have to pay for the high quality button of Daytona so that they can assemble it on Yacht-Master (which is an easy job).

The diameter of Yacht-Master is 40mm, and the case is a little thinner than other Oyster Professional. The thin case and bright watch face show a semblance of fashion and well-made. Yacht-Master is thewatch I love to wear most when wearing formal clothes. Although Yacht-Master has three locks, the water resistance which Rolex sets for Yacht-Master is 100m (Submariner is water resistant to 300m). As for Yacht-Master, which is a sports watch, such a water resistance is enough. Obviously it does not like Submariner or Sea Dweller, which are designed as diving watches!

 

What is inside the case is the best selling point for Yacht-Master-Rolex 3135 movement. 3135 is the self-winding movement of 31 diamonds made by Rolex itself. In these years,
Some wristwatch makers purchase spare parts and even movement from outside to improve the manufacture efficiency and reduce the production cost. However, Rolex does not care about high production cost and low efficiency, but to persist in its own design and production. Whether this strategy is good or not, we would not discuss it here, but you can not deny the success of 3135 movement.

3135 movement used by Yacht-Master has been put into production since 1989. In 16 years, 3135 movement has won a reputation as one of the most reliable and solid movement in history. Of course, there are also some people criticize that 3135 movement is not delicate and complex enough. From the very beginning of design, 3135 movement was designed for stainless steel Oyster and prepared to endure all sorts of rough environment; it is a proof of best functions. In addition, 3135 never lacks of technology complexity-the R&D department of Rolex is very good at it. Rolex used many technologies on 3135, such as overcoil of Breguet, Microstella adjustment screws, and Kif shock absorption. In a word, Rolex has set up a base which is not easy to reach by other wristwatch makers, which is beyond doubt. 3135 of Yacht-Master is also certified by COSC.

Yacht Master now has become the leading role in my wrist watches collectors, and now I am still puzzled that why not owning it earlier. The color of its white gold dial is easy to match any kind of clothes. But what is unfortunately is that the retailed price of Yacht-Master is pretty high-00, which is obviously higher than stainless steel Daytona and two-tone Submariner. Lol, from a positive point of view, the Yacht-Master of strengthened dial, bracelet and white gold obviously is the most perfect design in Rolex wrist watches.
