QLIPP™ begins tennis sensor trials, receives seed funding
Singapore-based QLIPP™ has developed a performance based tracking device for tennis players keen to ace the game. The tiny 3 x 2 cm tracker mounts onto any racquet within seconds, and reports ball speed, sweet spot, backhand, slice, and even over hand efforts. Purely wireless, QLIPP™ does not require any configuration except user registration so that a performance profile can be generated.
Players have the option to let QLIPP™ aurally read stats after every stroke while engaged in a match. (imagine doing that with a Bluetooth earpiece). QLIPP™ expects this to be a boon to trainers managing teams for competitive matches as big data meets the Internet of Things (IoT).
Serious aficionados seeking superior game play will appreciate the ease of switching racquets, so they can react to the competition swiftly. QLIPP™ recently closed a six figure seed round, including an investment from Media Development Authority of Singapore (MDA), even as product development pushed past the Minimum Viable Product (MVP) phase.
QLIPP™ will be participating in the ISPO taking place in Munich in February 2015. Pre-orders are available at www.qlipp.com.
