It really works because it has a multiple axis acceleromter.
I view it as when you pop, your accelerating upwards at an amount >y. After noticing an increase in the upwards acceleration, it looks for horizontal speed. Once the horizontal speed has an acceleration of <1, it starts the timer. When the Y value has a rapid deceleration, it stops the timer.

My guess is that they use a 3-axis accelerometer, with some calculations on initial state and displacement, etc. As far as it being accurate i cant speak much on that since i never used one.

Yeah, but where do you strap it? What happens if you like do grabs, shifties, spins. Do you have to like remain stiff like a statue for it to work?
