Baketball’s been around for a while, but now that high-tech sensors are super small and cheap, why not stuff them inside a ball and start getting a bunch of metrics on the game you know and love? The 94Fifty basketball weighs and behaves exactly the same as a standard ball, but contains 6 sensors that can communicate with your smartphone via Bluetooth, and feed it data on spin, shot arc, shot speed, dribbling speed, dribbling strength and pretty much anything you’d want to measure to help you improve your game. The app also comes with various challenges for you to complete and social elements to put you up against other 94Fifty owners around the world. Charging of the various sensors is accomplished wirelessly, through a Qi-approved electrical induction pad.
There’s no official price just yet, but this should be hitting the marketplace this month.
