The way that technology is changing pretty much everything we do, it's no surprise that someone created this Bluetooth basketball adds a technological dimension to basketball coaching.

The 94Fifty Bluetooth basketball may look like a normal basketball on its dimpled orange surface, but inside is a powerful wireless sensor that can detect things like hand speed, dribbling, and even reflexes. The ball then communicates with a smartphone app available on iOS or Android that shares all the biometric readings from the ball. This way, the coach can back up their advice with hard data, and improve a player's performance based on solid metrics.

The ball and app combo from InfoMotion Sports will be available in March, 2013. Stats for Sensor-Equipped Basketballs Trending: Older & Mild
