Wilsonâ??s Connected Football is a $200 piece of smart pigskin
I feel the grouchy old man part of me (about 75-percent of me, at this point) starting to complain about how in his day throwing the old football around was enough fun and we didn’t need to, well, gamify games. But who am I kidding? We played video games, too. And hey, if you can make throwing a ball even more fun, more power to you. Earlier this year, sporting goods giant Wilson gave select press a sneak preview of its Connected Football. Like last year’s basketball, the Wilson X Connected Football is, more or less, a standard sport ball with sensors built in to enhance the experience.
