I would think that this would work as part of a coaching suite of devices, not for an individual - similar to some of the swing analyzers available to dedicated golfers.  Probably not a stand-alone application, but something combined with video, an analyzis system, and a person who really knows what it all means.

Definitely true, Jack. This is not the kind of technology that provides a lot of real time benefits. You need to be willing to use this technology to gather information, and then go over the results at a later time.

Real time data presentation and interpretation is key.

How about having a practice mode that lights up the srting lattice to immediately display the placement, force and spin? The placement, color and shape(eccentricity) of the impact region string display could do this almost instantly.

If you have your eyes on the ball, you can pick up this feedback with little or no distraction, Later your coaching video can be analysed along with your bodykinematics to see the effect of the strike on the racquet and the ball trajectory, without the need to analyse graphs for every impact.

It might even speed up the process of beginners learning the "feel" of the racquet.

Is there such a thing as too much information?

I agree, Jack.  The racket will produce and send a lot of info in real time, but to really get the maximum benefit, a human analyst must convert this to useful intelligence for the player.
