The ShotTracker system, according to wired.com, is comprised of three elements: one wrist-mounted sensor, one net-mounted sensor, and a mobile app that allows the sensors to share information via Bluetooth and concretely calculate whether you scored a shot or fell short.

The system includes a wristband and a compression sleeve for wearing the diminutive wrist sensor at your preferred level of comfort. For $150, it will ship in early December, well in time for any Xmas-party shootouts. The durable devices are waterproof and weatherproof, and if you feel like waiting for version 2.0 in mid-2015, it will be also able to calculate your exact location on the court.
ShotTracker includes a sharing program where you can compare dunks and drops with other users, and also a list of workouts so you can bring your game up to shareable snuff. Coaches can also add their own workout plans, to perfect players even outside of practice.
Whether you're trying to make the team or just trying to tell if your old skills are still on point, the ShotTracker has a little something for every kind of hoop dreamer. As the ShotTracker website rightly explains, "You can't improve what you don't measure."
