These Goal Posts Use a Paired App to Make Organizing Sports Easier

These socially connected goal posts come with a paired iPhone app known as 'Pali' which help notify your network of friends when you're planning a game of soccer.

'Pali', means goalposts in Italian and friend in Scottish -- two words that best encompass what 'Uniform,' the UK design firm behind the idea are trying to achieve. The cones come equipped with bluetooth sensors and when they're separated, they send an SMS message to a selected network of friends, notifying them on a map where your soccer match is being held. When the game is over, put the cones back together, and another automatic SMS message will be sent to notify friends that the game is over.

These socially connected goal posts eliminate the hassle of having to organize sports, encouraging people to put their phones away, and get outside.
