You can already find GPS trackers attached to some of your favorite players, so it only makes sense that the Agent CTRUS Football should put forth the suggestion that fast-moving equipment might be recorded too. This innovative concept is a complete overhaul of the familiar soccer ball that strives to improve upon every single aspect of the existing one.

Firstly, the inside of the sphere would have a skelle-core structure, surrounded by a net-embedded shell of reinforced elastomer. It would bounce just like a regular football does and never require inflation. More impressively, perhaps, are its hi-tech features, including a built-in video camera that can deliver a ball's-eye view of the match. The appearance of the Agent CTRUS Football would change too. Sensors would help determine the precise location of the ball, telling it to change color when it's passed through the goal or ends up out of bounds.
