CMU Students Put Sensors, GPS, and Accelerometers into Footballs

CMU Students put sensors, GPS & Accelerometers into Footballs resulting in a ball that perfectly emulates a Ryan Leaf pass each and every time.

No, just kidding.
Carnegie Mellon students and their professor, Dr. Priya Narasimhan, have created a "smart football” and “smart gloves.” The result eventually would be a football that could alert refs whether the ball touched the ground, broke the plane, or was caught in-bounds.

Dr. Priya Narasimhan's bio states that she "devotes spare time to watching professional football games. Part of her research is focused on Football Engineering & Research, to improve the viewing, training, scouting and playing aspects of the game through technology. She is a rabid fan of the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Pittsburgh Penguins."

The NFL still would have called the Steelers TD against the Chargers back.
