Smart Activity Gaming Sensor Launched on Indiegogo.
Sanwood, LLC is announcing the upcoming crowdfunding launch of Sweet Spot, a smart swing sensor for golf and tennis. Sweet Spot will be available for preorder through Indiegogo.com beginning on July 15th, 2014 and supporters of the campaign will be able to reserve Sweet Spot for $99.95. Sweet Spot was developed by Sanwood, LLC and founded by Dr. Robert (Bob) Woods and Eric Sanchez with development in Santa Barbara, CA and business development in Las Vegas, NV.
Sweet Spot is a smart swing sensor that connects via BluetoothSmart to an iOS or Android app and works with any golf club or tennis racket. Sweet Spot’s Swing Away Activity Games develop a users’ swing and make practice fun through multilevel training games for all ages and skill levels. Sweet Spot’s social integration will allow users to connect with friends on Facebook to challenge, compete, and share accomplishments. The activity games teach the fundamentals of golf and tennis while developing the key skills.
Sweet Spot is the first product from Sanwood LLC, a developer of activity gaming technology. Sanwood LLC is the technology development company behind Sweet Spot and IoT Skybox. The Sweet Spot sensor records data from a golf club and tennis racket, helping players improve their game by gamifying their practice and play time.
Today’s sedentary technology is adversely impacting the health of our children, but Sweet Spot is part of a movement to change that trend with “internet of things” devices that gamify activity. Activity games, like Sweet Spot, engage users and challenge them by making it fun to learn how to play a new sport. Sanwood incorporated game mechanics to make Sweet Spot challenging for all skill levels and by connecting Sweet Spot to Facebook, players will be able to challenge their friends around the world.
Regarding the upcoming crowdfunding campaign, Eric Sanchez, President of Sanwood LLC, said, “We are very excited to be launching on Indiegogo. This is a great opportunity for us to intro the product at a discount and help us finalize our tooling and manufacturing here in the US.”
