Wilson’s $200 Bluetooth Basketball Quantifies Your Game for a Price

The Sweet 16 kicks off Thursday night and basketball fans are feeling the March Madness. So, it seems, are the amateur players who are coming out in droves to Chicagoland basketball courts during this spate of warm spring weather. 

But just shooting baskets the old way? BORING! 

Sporting goods maker Wilson has created a new “smart ball” that tracks your shots with a sensor that’s embedded inside the ball. 

We talk with Raymond Wong, who reviews the latest tech gadgets for Mashable, about whether the ball is worth the $200 price tag. He also discusses some of the other sports and fitness trackers meant to take your game to the next level.
