The adidas miCoach Smart Ball is a soccer ball that is equipped with sensors and integrated Bluetooth technology, allowing it to analyze your game and give you helpful tips via an accompanying smartphone app.

The miCoach Smart Ball has integrated sensors that detect your performance while taking free-kicks, penalty kicks, corner kicks and goal kicks as well as passes and shots. The Smart Ball transmits data on how hard it has been kicked, how much spin was put onto it and visualizes its flight trajectory, while also showing impact points. All of this data is displayed on the adidas miCoach Smart Ball app available for iPhone and iPod touch.

Players can then use this data to receive instructions on how to alter their kicking technique so as to generate more power, precision, spin and swerve.
