Tennis Identity

Yes, but can I beat Federer with this?

Sony has come out with a new gizmo called the "Smart Tennis Sensor." You hook it up to your frame (see how in the video,) then it zaps the info via BlueTooth to your smartphone. After you're done playing, it tells you how you did – number of forehands vs. backhands, where the ball struck the strings the most, etc.

Personally, I'd rather just have the all-white racquet with white strings. Perfect for Wimbledon.

 

Ed. note:  Wilson tennis will be the exclusive distributor and marketing partner with Sony on this technology. There is a lot of swing sensing technology rolling out now. It began with the Babolat Play which was announced last year. ZEPP is another new entry in the market. It will be interesting to see how it all shakes out with consumers.
