Space Aged Sports Gear

Toy Island, here I come!

Although it might sound like the best place on earth, Toy Island is actually a partner of Electronic Arts (EA). That’s the company that makes video games like Madden NFL Football and FIFA Soccer . Together the companies are about to put out some of the coolest sports gear in the world.

Soon you’ll be able to get a soccer ball with infrared sensors and hockey pucks that talk. This futuristic sports equipment will help analyze and improve your skills in five key sports: hockey, basketball, [kwlink]football[/kwlink], baseball, and soccer.

"Our goal is to take [EA Sports] deeper into the fabric of sports, and…allow more people to unleash their inner spirit of sports and competition," says EA Sports president, Peter Moore. "We're excited to be working with [Toy Island] to bring to market unique products that are sure to be captivating for young athletes."

The new gear works like a virtual coach. It instructs users on form and technique, speed and power, and more. Products will include interactive training tools featuring voice commands and instructions that will take budding sports stars to the next level.

There’s also a complete game-in-a-box with all the stuff for kids to practice and play sports, a line of sports toys that cheer when kids use proper techniques, and foam balls to help kids develop throwing and kicking motor skills at an early age.

So if you want to shoot like Kobe or bend it like Beckham, keep your eyes open for this new sports equipment.

    A recent comment on a video gave me this idea , of writing about this whole scenario  the comment was something like this Messi + Ronaldo = Zlatan It was something that made me happy , cuz i'm a Zlatan fan myself , but keeping that aside I'll be honest in stating the reasons due to which Zlatan is considered better among fans  1st - Tired of Messi vs Ronaldo ; For those of you tired of the endless Messi vs Ronaldo debate Zlatan is the middle way , when Zlatan was asked for a word to describe Messi and Ronaldo  he said for Messi - Fantastic , for Ronaldo - Good ( he'd definitely prefer messi since he was in barca , so definitely against Real Madrid , but i'll skip that ) , but when asked about one word for Zlatan - "WOW!" that was his answer 2nd - If you believe in extraordinary and Jaw-dropping stuff; If we talk about Messi and Ronaldo we'll think constant goal scorers and team players and who deliver something great evry time the team needs it , but Zlatan he may also score regularly not as frequent as Messi or Ronaldo , but every time he scores it's another jaw dropping goal , whether that 32 yard bicycle kick vs England or extraordinary volleys Zlatan is Zlatan 3rd Zlatan does things nobody does; You won't see Ronaldo having fun with reporters or Messi bad mouthing his manager even when he is wrong , Zlatan doesn't cares,  like who can forget the epic reply to Arsene Wenger on asking Zlatan to play a trial game , -" ZLATAN doesn't do Auditions" If some of you guys don't agree with me no problem , everybody has their own opinion , and if you don't agree with me cuz you don't know about any of those Zlatan goals or interviews , then you should definitely search the internet for - Extraordinary Zlatan  ZLATAN may had not won the -ballon d'or , but has won large no of trophies and league titles  search for zlatan ibrahimovic - titles and trophies for that

    Well for me, I think totally! Inside that is. When a guy says girls can't play sports I think THEY can't be cheerleaders. But if a guy says girls CAN play sports, yep, they could be cheerleaders
