  • Patent number: 8525472
    Abstract: A method for wirelessly charging and/or re-charging at least one sports object embedded with a battery and circuitry is provided. The method includes positioning the sports object proximate to a charging system, the charging system containing circuitry for wirelessly communicating with the sports object, whereby information is bi-directionally transferred by radio frequency and electric power is transferred to the sports object by induction. The sports object circuitry is adapted for determines a charging requirement of the power cell therein.

  • Publication number: 20110077112
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for suspending core electronics in a sports object is disclosed. The suspension is accomplished in such a manner as to protect the electronics from impact during normal play of the sports object. In one embodiment, a web like membrane is used to suspend the electronics in the sports object. Other embodiments include use of an impact absorbing memory foam, an air inflated inner core, or a flexible membrane in any combination with or without the web-like design, or individually used, suspend and support the core electronics while providing protection to the core electronics.

  • Patent number: 7095312
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for tracking location and flight path attributes of one or more sports objects, associating the sports objects with individual players, mapping each sports object location and a flight path to surrounding field of play, and allowing each player to access the location and flight path attributes of their sports objects. The present invention outfits sports objects with electronic devices that receive and transmit position and location information obtained from the Global Positioning Satellite (GPS) System, without adversely affecting the sports object's ability to perform in a standard way.
