LAS VEGAS: A connected basketball promises to improve your jump shot. Embedded sensors which gather and analyze data offer hope for a better swing in golf, baseball or tennis. The worlds of sports and technology came together this week at the 2014 Consumer Electronics Show, highlighting ways science can help improve performance for the weekend warrior or professional athlete. Apps and sensors showcased at CES offer help to runners, cyclists, skiers, and people who play tennis, gold or baseball, for example. The 94Fifty basketball from Ohio-based startup InfoMotion Sports Technologies includes rechargeable sensors which connect to a smartphone app, which analyzes shooting and other aspects of the game, with the goal of getting users to shoot with the optimal trajectory.
