CTRUS is a concept in development by design firm AGENT that aims to inspire new ways to think about sports equipment. Their experimental football makes use of GPS and RFID to more accurately track when the ball has entered playing field zones and goal areas, illuminating with various colors to assist with human officiating. The concept also calls for accelerometer-based tracking of travel velocity, with room to integrate force-sensitive panels to detect various types of physical interaction with the ball.

Watch a video demonstration below and video of the design process:
