1. A method for utilizing motion capture data comprising:

  • providing at least one motion capture element that couples with a user or piece of equipment wherein said at least one motion capture element comprisesa memory;

    a sensor that captures any combination of values associated with an orientation, position, velocity, acceleration of said at least one motion capture element;

    a radio;

    a microcontroller coupled with said memory, said sensor and said radio wherein said microcontrollercollects data that comprises sensor values from said sensor;

    stores said data in said memory;

    transmits said data via said radio;

    providing an application that executes on a mobile device, wherein said mobile device comprisesa computer;

    a wireless communication interface that communicates with said radio to obtain said data,wherein said computer is coupled with said wireless communication interface, and wherein said computer executes said application toreceive data associated with said at least one motion capture element via said wireless communication interface;

    analyze said data to form motion analysis data;

    store said data, or said motion analysis data, or both said data and said motion analysis data associated with said user or piece of equipment;

    access previously stored motion capture data or motion analysis data associated with said user or piece of equipment or previously stored motion capture data or motion analysis data associated with at least one other user or other piece of equipment;

    display information based onsaid motion analysis data associated with said user or piece of equipment,andsaid previously stored motion capture data or motion analysis data associated with said user or piece of equipment, 

    orsaid previously stored motion capture data or motion analysis data associated with at least one other user or other piece of equipment.
