While some of us might have been born with the talent to shoot hoops, some of us aren’t and have to work our way towards getting better. However with technology becoming more integrated in our everyday lives, there have been a couple of solutions one could seek in order to improve their game. Vibrado is another one of them. The wearable technology is essentially a sleeve that players can wear on their arm, and thanks to the built-in sensors, it will be able to help correct players on their form and posture, which hopefully will allow them to land better and more accurate shots.
According to Deric Thompson, a coach for fourth grade basketball, he states that the device helps and it changed the whole dynamics of his shooting. However according to its president, Quinn Jacobson, it will vary from player to player, in the sense that more advanced players probably have their own form and that’s something you don’t want to mess with. Instead, Vibrado will try and record the player’s shooting and from there attempt to measure the player’s consistency as well. As it stands, the sleeve created by the company is still being developed and worked on, and they are hoping to release it into the market late 2014.
