I wasn’t totally satisfied with my previous basketball hoop so I made another try at the problem. This time with robots and computer vision! I designed and build this hoop from the ground up with the goal of tracking the ball and directing it into the hoop by tilting the backboard. It works pretty well. My old solid state hoop is old news. Long live our robot overlords. I wonder what V3 will look like… These videos usually take 100+ hours of work and a lot of money in tools and materials.

Thank you so much!HomeCourt is game-changing technology that’s turning amateur basketball players into sharp shooters. It’s an app that launched just last year using high-tech computer vision and machine learning to improve a player’s shooting skills. “Today if you run, you’re using your Apple Watch or Nike Run app, but for basketball that didn’t exist,” said Alex Wu, part of Nex Team and one of HomeCourt’s creators. “The first problem we wanted to solve is how do we help people easily track their shots without having to do a lot of that manual work.” HomeCourt works because everything can be done on an iPhone. There are no sensors or high-tech equipment needed. The app figures out who the person is, where the basket is, where the three-point line is, if the ball is a make or a miss, and many shooting stats. HomeCourt can track made and missed shots along with advanced stats like launch angle, reaction time, vertical jump and leg angle. These are performance stats that the naked eye can’t see but are important to improving one’s shooting skills. The app itself is free to download and offers tracking of up to 1,000 shots per month for free. After that, it offers a subscription model at various price points. More than a [More]
