eGrain for your balls

Here’s a chip that can be mounted inside your golf ball for analyzing the speed, spin, and direction of your golf balls.

Nice… but the world is really turning into this mumbo jumbo tech bs…. We need to really stick with down-to-earth fundamentals…well for 95% of us on earth…

Regardless, this is great technological breakthrough for anyone who can break par.

A “smart” golf ball demonstrated at a consumer electronics fair in Berlin can help improve a golfer’s game by using a computer chip to reveal how fast it flies off the tee.

Developed by Germany’s Fraunhofer Institute for Reliability and Micro-integration, the e-Grain chip inside the ball can survive 200 sharp whacks from a pro golfer.

In the first five metres of its flight, it wirelessly sends information about its velocity to a display on the golfer’s bag.
