Shot Improving Basketball hopes to improve your game

shot-improving-basketballIf you are going to do anything at all, it might be prudent to do it with all of your heart. Otherwise, there might not be any reason to perform something half-heartedly, or put in a mediocre shift. For those of you who love shooting hoops, you might have read up on books, magazines, and even watched countless YouTube videos in delivering that money shot which might earn you a chance to make it to the varsity team, where from there, who knows just what kind of basketball future your path will end up in? If you are unable to hire a coach to help you out, how about some machinery to get the job done? This is where the $249.95 Shot Improving Basketball comes in.

The Shot Improving Basketball happens to arrive in the official size and weight of a basketball, although this bad boy does have built-in motion sensors and Bluetooth communication that will deliver instant, accurate feedback concerning your shooting and ball-handling skills. Right now, it holds the distinction of being the official smart ball of the National Association of Basketball Coaches, where the basketball is capable of sending data for every shot and dribble to an app running on an iPhone, iPad, or Android smartphone, pronto, as long as those devices remain within a 90′ radius. The app itself delivers more than 50 goal-based drills for individual practice and competitions for up to five players. It can offer real-time audio and visual feedback so that any flaws will be corrected, while the ball itself detects shot arc angles and backspin in order to help develop softer shooting touch. There are other smart basketballs in the market too, just in case you were wondering.
