Have you ever tried to pump a ball full of air, but weren’t sure exactly how much or how little to pump? We guess if you play enough sports, like soccer or basketball that you should be able to tell based on the feel, but if you don’t, it could end up being a tad tricky. Well the good news is that TorrX is here to save the day!

TorrX is basically a ball pump, or a smart ball pump if you’d rather. Users will be able to manually enter exactly how much pressure they want in either BAR or PSI measurements, press a button, and TorrX will automatically pump your ball for you until the desire BAR or PSI level is reached.

If there is too much air, TorrX will help to release some of it as well. The device is powered by a USB-rechargable lithium-ion battery which according to its creators should be good enough for approximately 50 fillings, and a full charge should take about 90 minutes so if it runs low on battery, you won’t have to wait too long for it to recharge.

TorrX is definitely not the first of its kind but if you like what you see and don’t mind pledging your support, head on over to its Kickstarter page for the details. Its creators are aiming for $100,000 in funding and have managed to raise about 12% so far. In the meantime you can also check out the video above to get an idea of what to expect.
