Agree with you, Ann.  The challenge is getting the right kind of information rather than a mountain of data.

Re: Intelligence to Tennis Rackets

A tennis racket that helps you improve your forehand and backhand, and also adjust your spin? What a neat idea. I just hope that the system is as fine-tuned as it must be to work well and give accurate, usable information instead of just tons of raw data. I'd think you could get a lot more data, and more accurate information, with motion capture devices like those used for virtual reality and in the movies.

Intelligence to Tennis Rackets

Would be interesting to see the user interface to view the data.  After a couple sets, there would be a lot of information to digest.  Amazing how this technology is bringing intelligence to sporting equipment. Thanks, Chuck.

Great idea

What a great idea. I think people will gravitate to this like hot cakes. Reminds me of what people pay big bucks to do when they go to those virtual reality instructional venues to get their golf swing analyzed. This seems like it would do the same thing, for far less money and far more consistently. I would think golf clubs would be another natural place to leverage MEMS sensors and perhaps even baseball bats for serious players.
