THE CITRUS CONCEPT SOCCER BALL




The Citrus, winner of the Red Dot concept award, is a sensor-enabled soccer ball that lights up in different colors when it's tossed out of bounds, scores a goal or falls into the crosshairs of a foul and includes a camera and speed positioning sensors to track ball movements and stats. GPS and RFID chips are enclosed in the skeletal structure which is covered in a reinforced-elastic mesh and has the same bounce, feel of a regulation soccer ball. It does not require air. The ball was developed by Mexican studio AGENT, headed by Alberto Villarreal and Michael Rojkind. via Fast Company
