Check In From the Air

A new app lets parachutists “check in” on Facebook as they fly through the sky. The Air Check In app takes your picture  mid-jump, records your height and lets you post it to Facebook. And if your 3G reception isn’t good enough, it stores the information for you to post later.  Every check-in has a link to Sky Company’s Facebook fan page.

Why I’m Curious: Seemingly, skydiving is one of the most incredible experiences that we can have. Yet, that in and of itself is not enough. And posting video or photos after the event isn’t enough either. There have been a variety of tools that allow of-the-second moment sharing and they likely will just continue to infiltrate more and more moments.
