I just got the email about a new ball in development by OnCore Golf.
A golf ball with a computer chip in it. The concept states it'll give you distance to a hole, distance, spin rate, etc.
All through a smart-phone interface. The best part may be that you can track your ball from your phone, so short of losing it in the water - you should be able to find it!! Woohoo - reminds me of the old golf joke about a ball that floats, buzzes and light's up - makes it impossible to lose. A guy offers to sell it to another golfer - for $100. The guy says he can only sell the one. Why? Because it's the only one I have. Oh...where'd you get it? 'I found it...'.
Anyhow, OnCore Golf is doing the equivalent of a 'Go Fund Me' page,

Read more about it - and see the video at: www.indiegogo.com/projects/the-genius-ball#/

Saw that too. I dont know what to think about this. We have all thought of this but is it necessary? Legal? I never liked their metal core ball but if they make this ball, im sure there is a handful of people who will buy it. Not me.

I have personally used OnCore Golf Balls....Both Avant, and ELIXR, and they are equivalent to me using a Bridgestone B330 Ball. They are trying to add technology to the market, and I know this of them....They do not do anything and release it unless they have tested it first. I am looking forward to trying this technology, and it will be probably at the show when I do, because I am on the shelf for now with an injury.

This is interesting to me, as a golfer, engineer and former software developer.
Off the top of my head, if the software allows you to hit it into a net - and still get readings like carry distance, spin, etc - then this may be a very cost effective way to create an indoor simulator.

I look forward to hearing more about this ...
