Playing tennis the Sony way... with a racket sensor that analyzes your game (video)


Fancy yourself Nadal's or Nole's equal? We feel safe assuming you aren't, but Sony's new tennis sensor, revealed at CES 2014, wants to help you analyze your game to get you ready for the ATP tour... or at least ready to beat the folks at the local country club. The sensor itself is installed in the end of your racket's handle and is equipped with vibration and gyroscopic sensors to track where those furry little balls strike your racket's strings, along with your swing speed and ball spin generated. It also has a Bluetooth radio to send your swing data to a paired Android or iOS device. We got to take a few whacks with a sensor-equipped racquet ourselves, so head on past the break to see the results.
