While practice might make perfect, if people aren't practicing correctly, then they are only instilling the wrong moves in their repertoire; Evo One can change that for the game of basketball. It is a ball with an embedded gyroscopic micro-sensor that essentially keeps tabs on players' shooting techniques. When the Evo One basketball detects a correctly released shot, it whistles.

Developed by Shooters Revolution, a company based in Phoenix, Arizona, the Evo One basketball still manages to maintain regulation size and weight even with the added sensor inside, which can be removed when not needed. Although it isn't a reality yet, the Evo One basketball is currently vying for funding on Kickstarter. It has nearly reached half of its $45,000 goal with 22 days still left.
