Why use it?
Play games for fun or use the training routines to improve your game. Games are great for kids to keep entertained while being active; time flies by when kids are engrossed in a game. For training routines, you can aim for specific target areas or do routines for fitness. For games and training you can track your points and compete with friends. The system also tracks calories burnt, hit/miss ratios and time taken.
How does it work?
In simple terms the projector displays the images on the front wall and using lasers on the front wall it knows exactly where the ball hits the front wall. This way the system detects when the ball hits an image displayed or a section of the wall.
How do I control it?
The best way is to download the mobile app which is available for both Apple or Android phones. Using the mobile app you can login, switch games and select routines. See the section below on installing the app.
