Cool Track data visualization graphics for the M3

I picked up a Solo DL data logger from Rich over at M-World last week (thanks btw!). Aside from my interest in improving my lap times, I've been really interested in data visualization over-layed on track video. I've been looking into the various packages and the AIM Smartycam seems to have the best looking graphics (I'm a designer by trade so I care about this stuff ) out of them all, but it requires you to own the physical camera. So I decided to take a crack at my own version of it and tailored it specifically for the M3.

Obviously I won't be able to use this (although it would be cool if one of those companies wanted to work with me on something similar), but it was a fun exercise and I thought I'd share it.



My goal was for it to look good and focus on what's most important when reviewing video. Am I missing any key components? Maybe steering angle?

This looks fantastic! I wish the smartycam came with such good looking components. I especially like how you did the brake/throttle meter.

Looks great. Make it happen!

Yes on steering angle, as well as an LED (that looks like E9x tail lights ) that lights on & off with braking.

You'll want brake pedal and gas pedal input monitors. Also split times for lap sections.

But yeah, looks good!

Brake and gas are under the tachometer.

Beautiful design Mark! I would make selected gear a tad bigger and remove letter S, as it doesnt mean anything, but takes up space.

If something like this was released, I would consider upgrading from my basic Solo
