Sensor-Equipped Basketball Acts As A Virtual Shooting Coach
Shooters Revolution's EVO ONE uses micro-sensor technology to help players perfect their skills.
- 27 august 2013
Shooters Revolution’s innovative basketball features micro-sensor technology which lets it easily transform from a traditional ball to a professional shooting coach. The EVO ONE aims to revolutionize the game by placing the virtual coach inside the basketball without hindering its performance.
When activated, the micro-sensor measures the motion of the ball during a shot and emits immediate audible-feedback when it is shot correctly. It measures the backspin rate, axes, and balance of the basketball when shot, emitting feedback when optimal backspin of (+or-) 2 revolutions per second is reached.
The micro-sensor can be removed and stored in its custom capsule to begin using EVO ONE like a traditional basketball. Each ball is precision engineered to satisfy regulation weight and size standards, with counter-balance technology to ensure that it still dribbles, passes, and shoots like normal.
The basketball has been constructed using durable yet lightweight materials to form its cushioning core and create a low density rubber shell that absorbs impact intuitively. Premium composite channels and microfiber leather lace its outer body, producing enhanced grip and feel.
Shooters Revolution are currently raising funds on Kickstarter, where the EVO ONE sensorized basketball is available to those who pledge $59 or more. You can check out the campaign video below:
