Adidas Soccer Smart Ball Tells You How Well You Kick it Around

May 25, 2013, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

When it comes around to taking innovative thinking onto the track and field, Adidas zooms ahead of its peers! Normally, tech in sports renders the possibilities of maximizing performance in whatever it does on track and field.

Adidas has been at the forefront of such innovative stuff and is not new to concepts that take tech in sports forward. Eager to know what is in store for you?

The new technology that Adidas has lined up for the sports arena is nothing but a soccer ball. What’s so special, you might ask. This new soccer ball tells you all about how it is kicked around!


The sporting company has made a football that houses its own app. The app helps track data regarding speed, rotation, direction and distance of the ball kicked.

In short, it gives a complete scan of ball movement. It comes with a range of sensors, though all the specs are still to be revealed.

The new ball is designed with goal line tech in mind. But since FIFA has been slow in adopting this tech, Adidas has turned to use it just for training. We wonder when such innovations will roll out onto the soccer fields rather than just being confined to the training arenas.
