Sony Smart Tennis Sensor: A Coach In Your Racquet
Sony unveiled a tiny new sensor that works with a smartphone app to improve your tennis game. The installation is simple: Twist the senor in place on the bottom of your tennis racquet handle and launch the app. The sensor will continue to send data throughout your session, including your total shots, spin, and the busiest part of your racquet. You can also record your practice sessions or matches with your smartphone while using the sensor, and then watch it in slow motion later with stats displayed on the side. When you wear out your racquet — or buy a new one — you simply remove the sensor and screw it into the next. Though it’s soon to tell if it can compare to something like Babolat, one of our favorite tennis systems, we’re looking forward to testing it out more when it hits courts early this year.
