How it works

RapidCam is a line scan photo-finish camera. That is, it only snaps an image of a thin vertical line at a time, at the finish line for example. It then takes all the images captured, and arranges them into a single final image.

In the image below, the finish line is a white line on the road. The image appears to show the racers on a white surface because it is only recording precisely on the white finish line. Incredible!

Could you make the call?
