Following the premier of their World Cup campaign, German sports giant adidas officially launches the miCoach Smart Ball. Equipped with Bluetooth and app-enabled, the football features sensor technology for dead-ball kicking training like penalties, free-kicks, shooting, corners, long passes or goal kicks. The Smart Ball then relays data on how hard it’s been struck, offers visual flight trajectories, depicts ball spin, and shows impact points via the accompanying app available for iPhone and iPod touch. Users can then use this data to improve kicking skills through in-app tutorials. The ball also features wireless charging capabilities and comes with a charging dock.
