@alex-m1, I don't pretend to be a basketball aficianado, but yes, this company's marketing dept. offers a really broad range of mateirals (video showing this basketball features, how different teams used the ball, etc.) Impressive. Obviously it's run by people who really love basketball.

I think you should buy the basketball and find out what difference it can make for someone who just wants to have fun with the basketball! I look forward to your report!

@Junko The basketball was definetly very interesting.

And i'm happy to hear bo convinced you :)

I looked into their testimonials. All focused towards teams , but definetly interesting.

BTW i like their marketing dept : http://teams.94fifty.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/06/cs-charts.jpg . it's a funny graph.

But it would be definetly interesting to see what happens if this basketball is giving to someone who plays for fun(and it's pretty easy to test, since the app measures everything). How big the change would be ? 18% isn't enough. You need something noticable.

@alex-m1, agreed. Actually, I was most intrigued by the basketball thing among all others. Indeed, having to look on the phone isn't comfortable as you pointed out. However, the smartphone does keep the record -- what you did and how well you did. So, it does, in a way, help to discipline your practice, I suppose.

As far as the marketing of this basketball is concerned, I did read a blurb by Bo Ryan, Badgers' coach, on this company's site. Oh, well, call me biased (as I live in Wisconsin), but I was immediatelyu sold on it when I read his comments. Ha ha.

@rick, that was my question too. It turns out that you take the thin speakers out of the headband and wash it. Duhhh. I know, I was a little disappointed at that simple solution!

The basketball looks interesting, and could potentially be a hit if they make it far cheaper, with better usability(having to look on the phone isn't comfortable while on the field) and with stronger marketing(make people believe that this will really improve their game, assuming that's the case.)

As a jogger and music lover, the RunPhones are most interesting to me. How is it washing does not ruin them?

I am sure that I am not the only one getting sick and tired of writing a story about yet another smart watch. But as more vendors get involved in designing new wearable devices, they may be articulating the importance of simplifying its user interface and clarifying what each of those wearable is for.

michigan0 Sang Kim First, 28nm bulk is in volume manufacturing for several years by the major semiconductor companies but not 28nm FDSOI today yet. Why not? Simply because unlike 28nm bulk the LDD(Lightly Doped Drain) to minimize hot carrier generation can't be implemented in 28nm FDSOI. Furthermore, hot carrier reliability becomes worse with scaling, That is the major reason why 28nm FDSOI is not manufacturable today and will not be. Second, how can you suppress the leakage currents from such ultra short 7nm due to the short channel effects? How thin SOI thickness is required to prevent punch-through of un-dopped 7nm FDSOI? Possibly less than 4nm. Depositing such an ultra thin film less then 4nm filum uniformly and reliably over 12" wafers at the manufacturing line is extremely difficult or not even manufacturable. If not manufacturable, the 7nm FDSOI debate is over!Third, what happens when hot carriers are generated near the drain at normal operation of 7nm FDSOI? Electrons go to the positively biased drain with no harm but where the holes to go? The holes can't go to the substrate because of the thin BOX layer. Some holes may become trapped at the BOX layer causing Vt shift. However, the vast majority of holes drift through the the un-dopped SOI channel toward the N+Source,...
