MUNICH, GERMANY, January 2015 – QLIPP™, the Ultimate Tennis Performance Sensor, makes its debut at ISPO BRANDNEW 2015 as a Digital Finalist. Weighing in at 8g and measuring only 30mm x 20mm, QLIPP™ is one of the most portable, lightest and smallest 3D motion tennis sensors in the market.
The sensor clips onto any tennis racket easily, and once mounted, a user just has to launch the QLIPP™ app (which will be available for both iOS and Android smartphones) to record video playback and track stats. It reports ball speed, sweet spot accuracy, and backhand, slice, and even overhand efforts. Players have the option to allow QLIPP™ to call out stats during a session with its voice feedback controls, or even take slow-motion video playback of every serve and stroke.
“We want to help tennis players up their game one stroke at a time with a performance sensor that truly gets the job done,” said Mr Cen Lee, co-founder of QLIPP™. Dr Donny Soh (PhD Data Mining, Imperial College, United Kingdom), co-founder of QLIPP™ also commented, “Our goal is to produce a tennis performance sensor with the best accuracy possible helping both players and coaches improve faster.”
Part of QLIPP™ technology was licensed from A*STAR, the largest governmental research agency in Singapore. QLIPP™ is supported by the Media Development Authority (MDA) Singapore.
