Developed by InfoMotion Sports Technologies94Fifty are smart, motion sensing basketballs that gives you advance training whenever you want it. Launched on Kickstarter last week, the project has already raised $33,000 of its $100,000 goal with 26 days more to go. These “freakishly smart” basketballs have the size and weight of a regular basketball, but feature an additional Bluetooth enabled sensor that communicates with a smartphone app to measure stuff that helps you train faster.
