This cool piece of sporting gear uses modern technology to help you answer that question. The football features a built in sensor that can track just how far you threw it, with accuracy down to 1 yard of the actual distance.
A built-in LCD readout shows the distance you last threw the football. Keep in mind that the ball isn’t a true “pigskin,” and is made from foam, like a NERF ball. If you or your kids are into football, this seems like it would be a fun way to improve your throwing distance and control. The Virtual Distance Football is available from the Discovery Channel Store for $19.95.
