Tech news… now you can user your iPhone and iPod Touch 2nd Generation (iPod Touch users require the microphone addition) to measure wind speed. Wind Meter works by measuring the volume of the wind on your iPhone microphone and converts it into a wind speed reading.
To use, simply point the microphone into the wind and push Get Wind! Wait a few seconds and push Got Wind! The final reading is the average of the period.
Wind Meter supports multiple units of measure including Miles Per Hour, Knots, Kilometers Per Hour, Beaufort, and soon Feet Per Second, and Meters Per Second. The wind speed is limited to 24 knots due to the decibel limitation on iPhone.
If you already have an iPhone you can get an anemometer for $0.99.
