Wind Speed & Direction to a hand held device

The first anemometer in the world that can send wind speed & direction through the air to a handheld device.
It is wireless, solar-powered and waterproof.
Just attach to the masthead with two screws, and start using it.

This would be good for powerboats as well as sailboats

My Tack Tick does this. Or at least it does if I hold the display head in my hand instead of clipping it to my bulkhead...

As would any NMEA to wifi gateway to a ipad, iphone or other device.

It's cool don't get me wrong, but hardly the first or only.
