This Hockey Training Device helps developing hockey players learn how to stick handle without looking at the ball or puck.
The device sits on the edge of a desk with the camera looking at your play area. The camera uses infra-red technology to track the ball. As the user moves the ball, the infra-red captures the reflection from the ball which translates into movement on your TV screen.
The software has various drills to help the user with stick handling. Essentially it's an interactive video game.
I enjoyed working on this project as it helps developing hockey players concentrate on the game, and not looking at the puck. Many hockey related injuries involving youth happen when they get hit as they are looking at the puck. We hope this device can help reduce the number of hockey related injuries.
