Tennibot picks up the balls for you.

Every tennis player has probably at some point wished there was an automatic way to get the balls up...and now there finally will be. Tennibot is a patent-pending robot that picks up tennis balls for you, so you can enjoy your time on the court.

" I had the idea two years ago" says Haitham Eletrabi CEO and Founder of Tennibot.  "After winning a CES innovation award in 2016 our team has been hard at work improving the robot and bringing it to market. Initially Tennibot only picked up 30 balls and and did not do great in corners. Today it will pick up 90 balls and with it's arms does a pretty good job everywhere." 

The automatic assistant is meant to help when hitting with a ball machine, in a lesson, or during feeding of a group lesson. In any feeding situation it should be of great benefit.

    HEAD Tennis Sensor coming soon.

    At first testing this sensor is very promising. Head using an already established sensor company in Zepp Labs, seems to have gotten this sensor a great start.  As always with tennis technology, it's about simplicity first. The Head testing version of the sensor is easy to set up and turns on by itself. It maintains the original racquet weight as it transforms any Head racquet into a smart racquet. The  Inside of the app there are several functions that seem advanced and maybe a little niche...but overall this seems like a great start for Head as they are making their racquets smart. 

    -Fits all new Head racquets (it does fit some older ones but changes their wight slightly).

    -Rumored price point around $100

    -Easy set up and installation

    -Simple magnet charger

    -It turns on automatically

    -3D serve representation

    -Spin/speed/heaviness of each stroke

    -Will help cut your video if filmed through app.
