'DribbleUp' is a connected basketball and app that can help people with hoop dreams to improve their games. As DribbleUp's name suggests, the app helps people to improve their dribbling skills through the use of lessons that take information for the system's smart basketball.
Dribbling is one of the most important skills on the court, and there are hundreds of YouTube tutorials that attest to that. However, practicing dribbling can be difficult without any feedback, as problems of form and technique, once accrued, can be nigh on impossible to shake. DribbleUp's smart basketball, which has the same size and feel as a regulation NBA basketball, gets tracked by a user's smartphone camera. This means that it has no extra sensors or batteries inside it, giving it an even more authentic feel.
