Those guys raised more than the $150,000 start-up money they needed. Looks like it’s going to be made commercially available by February 2014.

Jess from GymCastic linked to this. And asks whether we should be testing it with Parkour, Trampoline, Gymnastics, etc.

Leave a comment if you’ve used Trace or anything similar.
