What is the accuracy of the shadowbox ?

I've surfed the specs numerous times, wihthout finding anything about it :(

And display/memory resolution and accuracy is NOT the same...

Has also written directly to the shadowbox founders, but never gotten any reply :(

As an engineer this is by far the interesting point.

Not only what the claimed accuracy is, but how it is validated ?

(sorry if I seem a bit nit-picking, but this is my job also, working with calibrations and accuracy and measurements and approvals)

:thumb: Peter

PS: I am not downing the results - just curious about the shadowbox accuracy and how it is verified and not just a simple/easy statement.

Not all jumps are accurate, but you can tell.
But I think the majority is accurate.

Ian played with it for a week, he could tell more.
Plus more and more people are trying, so will be intetesting what they experienced.

"Not all are accurate". this implies one has no proof that any is accurate.
Sure you can tell when a jump is 10ft and not the recorded 70ft. But what if the difference between jump and record is 22ft and 25ft?

Accuracy is even more important as PKRA is planning official contests, with this device as referee.
imagine a dude om a footballfield in ZA blowing his wissle after 90min. and saying: "2-1? yeah, that could be it. Let's write that down"
