Catching speeders and clocking pitches just got a whole lot easier now that a radar gun has been developed that's about the same size as an average cellphone.
The Doppler-based Pocket Radar has the same degree of accuracy as traditional, bulky radar guns (within 1 mph to be exact) in a unit that's small enough to fit in a shirt pocket. It can also take up to 10,000 speed measurements on one set of AAA batteries. In other words, it's a lot more sophisticated than that cheap Hot Wheels radar gun you have been playing with. Of course, it's probably going to be a lot more expensive for makers to tinker with when it arrives in the Spring of 2010. [Pocket Radar via BusinessWire via Gadget Lab]
