While it may be a bit late to brush up on your skills in time to make it into the World Cup — you can still use the Adidas MiCoach Smart Soccer Ball to step your game up before your summer league starts. Packed with sensors throughout, this ball connects wirelessly to an iPhone app, constantly measuring data about the way you kick, and helping you improve everything from spin and foot plant, to power and strike point. Tutorials in the app coach you on how to curve the ball around a wall, kick a knuckleball, improve your power, and much more.
Unless you spend a lot of time at the local table tennis club, one of the toughest parts of improving your game is finding someone to play. Enter the Killerspin Throw II Robot. Designed to simulate playing against a real person, this intelligent pitching machine offers adjustment of topspin, underspin, left-to-right and short-to-long ball placement, and ball arc, and can throw out balls at speeds of up to 100 in minute. In other words, not only can it help you improve your game, but it might just be even better competition than your friends.
Ditch your traditional bat and club up with something more stylish with these Warstic Flame Treated Baseball Bats. Available with white or black handles, these unique bats are made in the USA from hand-selected American White Ash Hand-Split billets, flame treated to bring out the natural straight grain, and then treated with either natural or dark Warrior Flame stain. Made to order in lengths of 30-35 inches, each bat also includes your name engraved on the barrel — so if it wasn't already obvious, everyone will know the bat is yours.
