The Babolat Play Pure Drive tennis racket looks just like any other tennis racket on the outside. However, hidden inside the handle of the racket are motion sensors that turn the Babolat Play Pure Drive into a state-of-the-art that records all kinds of vital statistics as you play. After a game of tennis, you can download the data into a computer, tablet or smartphone for detailed analysis of your game.
Think of the Babolat Play Pure Drive as a combination of a high performance tennis racket with the motion capture abilities of the Nintendo Wiimote except that the sensors on the Pure Drive is much more sophisticated and accurate. The sensor records, analyzes and churns out detailed statistics about your game including power, impact locator, type and number of strokes. The sensor is even sensitive and smart enough to determine the different strokes (forehand, backhand, serve, overhead smash) that you used in the game.
The data collected is invaluable to any tennis player who is looking to improving his or her game. Babolat even introduces a social aspect to the system. Players can upload their statistics and compare them to other players or friends thus spurring them to do better and outdo the competition. With the Pure Drive you can actual compete with each other at tennis without actually playing together.
The Babolat Play Pure Drive has a built-in battery that lasts up to 6 hours of continuous play. Data collected can be downloaded either wirelessly via Bluetooth or using a USB cable.
