The 'Power Sensor' is a new device that uses technology and the power of big data to improve a classic American sport. With the ability to measure a variety of metrics in real time, this high-tech bat represents the future of sports equipment.

The Power Sensor from 'Easton' is a weightless attachment that is fixed to the knob of a baseball bat. The device itself is packed with a number of sensors that record information about each swing the user takes. The data is then sent to an accompanying app via Bluetooth. This app includes information about a variety of different metrics, which range from swing speed to swing direction. The information can then be combined to generate an overall score that indicates consistency, power and efficiency.
