Help your techie work on his or her game with the Infomotion 94Fifty Smart Sensor Basketball.
Meant to be used with the 94Fifty iOS app, the Smart Sensor Basketball includes built-in sensors and motion detectors that measure users' muscle activity and evaluate their skills on the court. From there, the ball sends that information, along with visual and audio feedback, directly to users' iPad, iPhone or iPod touch.
Infomotion says feedback comes just milliseconds after every shot or dribble, allowing users to quickly learn from and address flaws. The app adjusts itself based on a player's skill level, with drills ranging from "playground" to "pro" level.
The app is free, but the basketball sells for $299. Both are available in the Apple Store.
