Golf can be a frustrating game to learn: it takes countless hours of practice to get anywhere near the perfect swing. While some may be lucky enough to have a professional hand every time they hit the driving range or the green, most of us need to use it to see the speed of the ball and understand what we are doing wrong.
Fortunately, technology is here to help: [Nick Bild]Its Golf S is a potter that uses machine learning to analyze your swing. An accelerometer mounted on the shaft senses the exact speed of the club and uses a machine learning algorithm to see how closely it matches a professional’s swing. If your stroke is good, an LED placed on the head of the club turns green, otherwise it turns red All of these are powered by an Arduino Nano 33 IoT and powered by a lithium-ion battery.
The Golf S does not tell you which part of your swing needs to be improved, so you will still need some external guidance to help you get closer to the ideal form; [Nick]The idea is to bundle a trainer’s swing data with a book or video that explains the important points. This certainly seems like a reasonable approach to us, and we can imagine a similar setup for use in wood and iron, although this would require a more robust mounting system.
However, the Golf S can be an effective addition to many gadgets that try to improve your game. But if you are still frustrated, you may want to try this automated robotic golf club.
