DribbleUp Smart Soccer Ball
The First Soccer Ball That Uses AR to Train You
Brooklyn, NY — On August 17, 2017, DribbleUp launches the first soccer ball with augmented reality on Kickstarter. The ball connects to the DribbleUp training app on iPhone and Android using your smartphone’s camera and advanced computer vision algorithms.
A MATCH QUALITY BALL YOU CAN USE ANYWHERE
NO CHIPS OR BATTERIES TO CHARGEThe DribbleUp app follows the ball in real time and synthesizes thousands of data points into training feedback. A virtual trainer guides players through drills, provides real time audio feedback and grades performance at the end of each drill.
In the United States alone, there are more than 3 million youth soccer players and 250,000 adult players. They spend $70 million on soccer balls each year and the market is growing quickly. There are currently no options on the market for a tech-enabled soccer ball. The DribbleUp smart ball is the first that can be used not just to train but also for free styling and in games.
Soccer app tracks our soccer ball using the smartphone camera and guides players through interactive drills and training. The app adapts to players’ skill levels, making it effective for a 4 year old kid and challenging to a professional player.
Our augmented reality soccer app is second to none and represents a revolution in consumer soccer technology. We’re affording access to players of all backgrounds to high quality training whenever and wherever - all the while, making soccer training fun. Players can train inside inside their living rooms at night or on a rainy day, then take their balls to the field the next day where they can use our goal shot analysis and freestyle recording features.
