Smash Is A Wearable For Tracking Tennis Technique
techcrunch.com – Fitness wearables are getting more specialized. There’s Sensoria’s smart running socks. The Krack trick-tracker for skateboarders. And now Smash: a wearable bracelet for tennis players to quantify their technique. Or there will be if Smash’s Australian makers can convince Kickstarter backers to pledge a rather hefty $200,000 AUD in crowdfunding over the next 43 days. Smash founder Rob Crowder says that level of funding is required to take the current prototype to commercial product, with system architecture, tooling design and production line set up named as the “big ticket items” on the startup’s need-to-do list.
