Inventor Shane Wighton already built one robotic basketball hoop that won’t let you miss, but one of his recent projects takes it to a whole new level. Made from a combination of aluminum, foam and fiberglass, the hoop uses a complex system of pulleys as well as six electric motors to follow the ball’s motion.
Having a smart home is nothing new, but for those into basketball, Huupe is a must have. This smart basketball hoop comes equipped with a screen that replaces the traditional backboard, offering advanced training mechanisms as well as a sleek all-weather design. Not only does it come loaded with training videos, but also contests, as well as video highlights directly from the smart hoop’s backboard.
Warner Bros. and HBO Max have just released the first trailer for “Space Jam: A New Legacy,” the sequel to the 1996 blockbuster that had NBA superstars playing alongside Looney Tunes characters.

Unlike its predecessor, this sequel has plenty of new technology, including a server room that turns into a Matrix-like scene. Read more for the video and additional information.
