Nike SPARQ Vapor Strobe Eye Wear
By blocking or disrupting vision using a strobe or flicker effect that can be varied in speed, an athlete can develop quicker reaction times and motor skills. The strobe effect improves reaction time by switching between clear and blocked vision, which trains the brain to anticipate what‘s coming when the eyes are blocked. Features include an adjustable head strap for a secure fit and liquid-crystal lens technology with variable speeds for different levels of training.
Smart Light Technology
In everything we do, we believe in challenging the status quo.
We do this by developing ideas that are creatively designed, simple to understand and user-friendly. We believe in creating interactive learning environments through the use of full motion color graphics as visual reinforcement.
As coaches we enjoy teaching and training players, but have become frustrated trying to use traditional practice tools. Missed communicating the intent of the drill is often frustrating for both the players and coaches. It wastes valuable practice time. Our passion is designing visually compelling learning tools that are simple, easy to understand and effective.
