Tracker Free Video Analysis

Ever wished you could track and analyze motion video, similar to what you see on TV when they "dissect" sports with digital overlays? Well, thanks to this amazing and free tool called Tracker you can do that and much more. Not only you can analyze all sorts of motion systems captured on video (like falling objects) and compare it to theoretical models, you can use it for much more than that.

If you have a camera pointed to any street, you can easily figure out how fast each vehicle is moving, or even figure out how fast you can throw/kick a ball. The possibilities are endless.

You can easily find tutorials and examples on YouTube (like this one) but the best part is, you can play around with it and figure it out by yourself. After all, it's a free video analysis tool.
(I only wished I had this sort of stuff when I had physics classes! :)
