Product Evolution Strategy
The Wearable Coach consists of three main components: a motion capture system, the Coaching Script Editor, and Coaching Script Playback Software. Our initial product is limited to baseball training. A ProMotion Coaching Script is created by experts and ships with our product. Our current Coaching Script Editor is tailored towards experts. In the near future we will make the ProMotion Coaching Script Editor more generalized and release it to the public so that anyone can make an annotated Coaching Script File.
Our motion capture system consists of strategically placed sensors connected to our specialized controller that in turn communicates with a trainee’s portable computing device (e.g., cellphone or tablet). Our controller will continue to be simplified and may eventually disappear altogether being replaced by distributed processing among the streams of sensors placed up and down the human body. Presentation and human interaction will always be through commercially available devices such as cellphones, tablets and laptops. Besides our highly cost effective marker, the key to low cost is usage of cellphones as a minimal human interface.
Following baseball, our product will evolve to cover more and more complex motions until it reaches that of being totally universal. Examples include any form of athletic training as well as rehabilitation. This is the point that young people can effortlessly record such things as dance steps for sell and distribution on ProMotion’s iMotion Site.
