Startup DribbleUp from new York showed a “smart football ball”, which will help to master the technique of this sport. Together is the most common ball plus platform to analyze data about the movement – it is the whole point. The combination of an ordinary object and smart system on the basis of any tablet.
Inside the ball DribbleUp no sensors, batteries or tools this is a typical ball leather and thread. But his coloring contains symbols like QR-code, being read by camera phones. A special application analyses how the ball moves in space, on the basis of which it is easy to conclude – correctly performed a specific exercise or not.
The only serious drawback — you will have to train on a spacious field, and in the closed room, right in front of the camera of the gadget. DribbleUp not so much the coach, as the censor system knows hundreds of exercises with a ball can show the order of execution and to follow the student, but will not make it and they have no objective to motivate him. Will have to sweat and try on their own.

In the end, you can simply turn off the device and good to kick the ball the old-fashioned way – at a price of $90 it is not much inferior to professional models.
