The partnership between Kookaburra Sports and SportsCor
In 2019, the renowned Kookaburra Sports in partnership with SportsCor manufactured Kookaburra Smart Ball. A SportsCor electronic chip is placed inside a regular Kookaburra cricket ball.
The electronic chip makes the cricket ball “smart”. It allows the operators to perform various functions with it and obtain variety of information. However, the ball has not been launched officially and is still in testing phase.
How does the smart cricket ball work?
The electronic Chip placed inside the ball transmits the information from the ball back to the app installed or to other smart devices. The chip is capable to measure the speed and revolutions of the ball at different stages. It can also collect data that will prove useful in tracking the Decision Review System.
The invention of agriculture drones and smart cricket balls in Pakistan will bring innovation in Pakistan science and technology field.
