The Hoop Basketball Simulation is a portable training device that is meant to help increase players' ball handling skills. Although it looks like a futuristic version of quidditch, a fictional competitive sport dreamed up by J.K. Rowling of 'Harry Potter' fame, it simply focuses on a variety of positions to best simulate the moves a player would make throughout a game.

Designed by Therese Brunet, the Hoop Basketball Simulation hopes to improve the users accuracy with both passing and shooting, with other players or solo. According to Yanko Design, it boasts "reactive lighting, automated score keeping, and sync capability with Nike Fuel Band maximize improvement while keeping things fun and interactive." Not to mention that it folds up neatly for easy transportation.
