It's been a while since we found
anything worth covering on the golf beat
, but that doesn't mean
that labs full of green-vested engineers haven't been slaving over the next big thing in links technology. And it looks
like they've come up with it. The BallFinder SCOUT works with ordinary white golf balls, and uses a scanning digital
camera to track them down as long as at least 1% of the ball is exposed. The device can apparently scan 600 square feet
per second, and works in almost any terrain. Of course, at a price of over $260, you could buy quite a few new balls,
but where's the fun in that?
