I used to play golf before I retired. I do a lot of things backwards.
Today I got an offer for a product that set my geek heart a-pounding. A Blu-Ray Putter, from my friends at Herrington Catalog. The only thing it doesn’t have is a power brick. If it had a power brick I’d take up golf again in a flash. Absolutely.
Invented by Dr. Ci Moo Song, the former head of research at the Samsung Advanced Institute of Technology and a professor of aerospace engineering at Sejong University, the DiXX Blu utilizes advanced motion sensors and a computer mounted on the club head to provide instant feedback on all aspects of the putting stroke.
… Each DiXX Blu includes a removable computer terminal that uses its patented Inertial Navigation and Micro Electro-Mechanical System to analyze key elements of a successful putt including Face Angle, Impact Position, Swing Path, and Swing Tempo.
… The terminal also allows you to choose straight-back-straight-through or the arc path … as well as Pro or Standard Mode, depending on skill level. Remove the terminal and insert the included playing module and you are ready to play in any USGA event.
Now if this was available when I was playing golf I might still be ‘in the game‘, but I won’t tell whether it would have been due to my skill level, or love of the gizmo.
