In the year of 2019, there will be an event Polish Paragliding Open Championship 2019 in Levico Terme, Italy from 16th — 22nd June. This air sport is very weather dependent. A bad windy and rainy day may cause unexpected accident whereas a sunny day probably does the same. The glaring light may affect athletes’ sense of direction, situation judgment, and make the paragliding deviate from the planned path and landing area. This situation is fairly vital for an extreme sport.

Levico Terme is situated in the southern part of the Alps between Trento and Feltrein Italy. With good weather conditions, it’s really easy to make flights to take off and land. In order to diminish potential risks occurred during the event, the participants will use custom-made glare-free E-ink devices for GPS units sponsored by Onyx. That means participants are able to read the position on the screen, to know where they are even if under a shining day. To clear the position helps participants to control paragliding direction and take a suitable landing place. The battery is long-last enough to implement the GPS all the way; The screen is solid enough to resist the wind and pressure in the air; What’s the most important is, it is readable in sunlight.
