Just when you thought that Sony is pretty content at where they are with regard to the consumer electronics world, here we are with the Sony Smart Tennis Sensor that delivers real-time optimization of play across several tennis racket models, so that you will be able to improve on your game in the long run. The Smart Tennis Sensor has been specially engineered to work just fine, regardless of your tennis level. Offering real-time shot visualizations that are instantly available on a connected smartphone or tablet, it will also show off recorded video and shot metrics simultaneously.
Do take note that it will work alongside tennis racket models by top manufacturers such as Wilson, Prince and Yonex, so if you happen to be using a tennis racket that does not hail from any of the mentioned names, it would not work. This special Smart Tennis Sensor will boast of sensing technologies alongside newly developed vibration analysis mechanics which is capable of analyzing a range of player movements, where among them include shot count, ball impact spot, swing speed, ball speed and ball spin.
Relying on highly sensitive wave and motion detection, this particular sensor is capable of picking up multiple swing types, including topspin forehand, slice forehand, volley forehand, topspin backhand, slice backhand, volley backhand, smash, and even attack-style serves. It even comes with an IP65 waterproof/dustproof rating, and has also gained official approval by the International Tennis Federation (ITF).
