smartball

There’s no better way to celebrate the World Cup than to actually get better at Football (Soccer). Yes practice makes perfect, but practice with a high tech ball that can tell you exactly where and how to kick, will help you reach perfect more quickly. The miCoach Smart Ball works with an iOS app that gauges how hard you kicked, how accurate you are, the ball’s trajectory and how far it travels. You can also watch tutorials on the app that will teach you advanced techniques like bending it in the style of Beckham or knuckle balls. A charging dock is included and while you may be worried all that fancy tech will weigh the ball down, this Adidas ball still weighs and feels the same as a regulation size five ball. Unfortunately for Android owners, this is an Apple exclusive. Maybe Nike can make a ball for the rest of us to play with. $299. store.apple.com
