Adidas wearable coach prototype will put you in the game when you ask it to


Adidas. That company is always up to something. Up to bat now? A wearable, virtual coach that does all kinds of cool stuff. Really. Think of this thing as you own, private Pat Riley. You know, except without all of the expensive suits.

Designer Sebastiaan Pijnappel and Adidas has been cobbling this wearable coach concept for a while now. The general idea is that the device plays musical notes that correspond to certain movements. Strike just the right ones and you know you’ve gotten in the zone.

The device has only been tested with pitches for now. The results, however, have been positive. No word on when this concept would enter the realm of reality. Until then, we’ll have to settle for those boring flesh and blood coaches.
