Juggling a soccer ball is a fun but challenging skill. Constant motivation is the driver to success! However, practice might get boring without the right incentives.

What it does

We created an app that connects with your adidas smartball via bluetooth, so you can start juggling and have fun. It allows you not only practice your soccer skills but furthermore motive you to go to the next level. We included all elements of gamification - Scores / Badges / Leaderboards to give you the right incentives.

How I built it

We used the adidas smart ball sdk to track bluetooth signals from the ball. Scores are pushed to our server and ranked in a leaderboard. This leaderboard is available to all app users globally.

Challenges I ran into

  • very short bluetooth sample rate
  • only accelerometer build into the ball
  • bugs in firmware
