Okay, now I’ve seen everything. introducing the  ”smart basketball” called 94Fifty,  named because of the dimensions of an NBA or college court (which are 94 feet by 50 feet). Yes, you read right, a smart basketball. So what makes it so “smart”?  Wireless Bluetooth technology. Hidden inside the ball are nine sensors that communicate with a companion app on your iPhone or iPad. As you dribble or throw up shots, the app provides instant visual and audio feedback, with a “coach” that pushes you hard. (“Snap that dribble, faster, faster…”)  94Fifty lands exclusively in Apple Stores on today and at Apple Online Stores a week later. Cost?  $300 bucks!  for a basketball!  No thanks, but if you get one I’d like to give it a try.  Read more here  and Face Book here.
