The Babolat Play tennis racket uses Bluetooth or USB Read More

The Checklight is a protective piece of headgear that uses sensors to measure brain activity in order to gauge the impact of hits and collisions on the field of play. While football would be the most likely to benefit from this creation, any sport where forceful impact is a real possibility Read More
