NBA's Steve Nash and iPhone could help your jump shot
Homecourt is an app that uses [UNKNOWN] to check basketball shots by simply pointing your iPhone at a court.
When I was young and learning the game, I never really knew if I was doing the right things to improve my game.
I would spend hours and hours shooting by myself, just hoping I was refining the techniques that would take me to the next level.
I've been working closely with the Homecourt team on a tool And will revolutionize basketball training and I can't wait to show you what we can do with the new iPhone.
We couldn't bring a basketball court here so we went out last week and saw Steve training an athlete.
We now have a screen recording of our app running on a new iPhone.
Let's take a look.
The app recognizes the hoop and the court automatically.
Kept stock, it was not tracking first shot attempts, the makes indicated by the dots on the floor, and misses by the red x's drawn as an overlay right on the court.
With the new iPhone and Core ML 2, we see a massive performance gain that allows us to do a lot more.
With powerful atrobionic in our Core ML models run up to nine times faster.
And that unlocks new feature that were not possible before.
Let's take a look at what's going on under the hood.
[SOUND] Only on the new iPhone, we can run real-time players tracking, real-time post estimation, real-time body detection, and trajectory estimation, all at the same time.
We call this real-time shot science.
That charts six metrics for every single shot the player takes.
These insights are not visible to the naked eye.
To become a great shooter, you need to practice every day, you need to shoot at game speed, and with the right posture.
I focus my students,on staying low, and stable in the shoe.
Home court, is giving players immediate feedback, to help them understand that they're practicing with the right form.
Release time is also a great indicator, of whether the player is shooting a game speed, while staying low.
These meaningful insights, and feedback just weren't possible.
When you see that release time from the set, it will be displayed on screen, and it can also give audio feedback for the view in the stereo speaker on your airpods.
As players train with realtime feedback, they build muscle memory.
I really wish that when I was younger, we had these tools.
Home court is great for every basketball player who wants to get better, whether you're a beginner or a pro.
The most amazing part is this all done with just your new iPhone.
There no sense on the player, no sense on the ball and no sense on the court.
And that's home court, real time, shot science.
