Sorry but this idea will fail. It is way of the mark and waaaay too slow. No evidence of increased velocity based on swing.

Sadly, I suspect you are right. On the other hand, it proves that it is possible. Proof of concept, if you will. It can only get better from here.

I think they are trying to include every setup as a market, and that will lead to a lot of disappointed customers. This just feels like a money grab.

They should test and qualify a list of cameras with recommended devices and such. Because not all cameras have the same speed and memory or connection to move the data predictably.

I saw a demo on youtube when this lady was demoing a the tennis game they talked about:

It is like you have to hit the ball before the opposing player even hits it back. This is on a laptop they choose to demo. This can not be the worst case scenario. But it sure looks like it!
