A company called 94Fifty has developed a smart sensor basketball, which in addition to functioning as a regular basketball, has advanced data-gathering technology that tracks various parameters, and helps basketball players understand and improve their game.

Basketball fans are known to obsess over statistics and data surrounding their performance, so it only makes sense that a company would manufacture a basketball that records pertinent data for them.

The 94Fifty Smart Sensor basketball helps players assess the angle and arc of their shots. This regulation size basketball tracks various parameters including dribble control, shot speed and the angle of entry of the ball into the basket.

To use the Smart Sensor basketball, users have to first download a free app, activate the ball using the included wireless charging pad and dribble the ball to connect the ball to the app. From this point on, the ball starts recording data.
