The 'SOLIDshot' basketball sleeve is an innovative wearable tool that teaches players how to improve their aim when shooting hoops. Tested on NBA and NCAA players, the SOLIDshot uses sensors and analytics to examine the shooting arm of an athlete and then provides instant feedback on how a player can improve. Athletes can get the feedback via a mobile app. According to PSFK, studies showed that NBA players had the ability to improve their shot in just one session. The basketball sleeve can run for nearly four hours and can be charged with a USB cable.

SOLIDshot demonstrates the progression of smart technology and its incorporation into wearable clothing. A smart athletic sleeve takes wearable technology one step further by making it a functional training tool for any basketball player looking to develop themselves.
