Wilson Sporting Goods is pairing up with SportIQ to come up with a basketball and app that will allow users to track their progress for the game. Once the connection is made between app and ball, data will be sent to one's phone detailing the accuracy of a person's shot, as well as other information such as fitness levels and the distance shooters are standing away from the net.

While this new product would be great for pro NBA players, the design is meant to be accessible for anyone interested in the sport and wanting to improve their game. The app is expected for release later in 2014, as the two companies are currently working out any bugs before launching. Photo Credits: designboom, wilson
