AirCoaster 3D is a high-speed 3D roller coaster simulation for the iPhone/iPod Touch, and yours for $0.99. Users are able to design their own tracks and sound effects, but a more interesting feature allows one to download tracks created by others, including tracks that mimic the stock market charts of popular companies. For instance, below is a video demonstration of a roller coaster track based on the Dow Jones Industrial Average from October 2007 to March 2009.

One might notice the concept is not that new: one should also watch the Housing Prices Rollercoaster posted back in April 2007.

Not too fond of the graphics, nor the sound, though the concept is rather interesting.

If the visual effects were a bit more realistic, and the captions/timeline info showed up in a similar way in the app as shown in the video I would much prefer it.

Seems a bit silly that they'd use a space-background. If they had used something with a horizon the ups and downs would probably be more visible. and the sound... hmmm...

Interesting way to portray time. Gives a feel for why investors are scared at times!
