Skydiving is becoming more popular as the years go by. Thanks to advancements in technology and the demand for the sport, the experience continues to be more adventurous. Here are three emerging trends in skydiving and parachute technology that you should know.
Being able to capture every moment while in the air is one of the amazing things about skydiving. However, carrying a camera and trying to take pictures is highly risky. Also, the camera could be too heavy, which makes it difficult for you to skydive and still take the perfect pictures and videos.
Companies have realised this problem and have designed flexible cameras. A skydiver can fit one on their forehead and enjoy their time while capturing every minute of the experience. With technology such as Electronic or Optical Image Stabilisation, you can get clear images continually.
More Technology Advancements
There is undoubtedly so much more when it comes to which part of the skydiving technology is being advanced. From systems engineering to specific mechanical designs, a lot keeps on changing. Control systems are getting easier to use, while rigging and packaging are also getting better. Not to forget advancement in fabric designs.
Digital Exposure and Social Media Impact
Just like any other market in this century, social media keeps making marketing and brand exposure easier. Today, many people are finding out about skydiving and the entire thrill of its experience by watching online videos and seeing people post about their adventures.
In the same way, in which people use Google to find the best accommodation for a vacation, people search for skydiving locations and how to prepare for such an experience. Social media has made it easy for people to want to try new adventures. This has worked quite well for people in the skydiving business.
