Being announced as number 1 by Fast Company's Most Innovative Sports Company's of 2020, has accelerated usage of AR (Augmented Reality) home sports training app, Homecourt.
Dubbed as the Zoom for basketball, HomeCourt is the interactive, AI-powered mobile app that puts live action sports inside a game.
Now everyone can play sports at home.
Here at Kit Radar, we believe these type of mobile phone training activities will be the future of home workouts. Homecourt started in basketball, but is slowly diverging into other sports and home-gym fitness.
HomeCourt is used by players in over 200 countries around the world and has been featured in the Wall Street Journal, CNBC, CNET, ABC, and Sports Illustrated.
Since its launch, HomeCourt has tracked over 1 Billion dribbles and 100 million shots and has been recognized as Time’s Best Inventions of 2019, and winner of a 2019 Apple Design Award.
NEX Team is headquartered in San Jose, California, with a second office in Hong Kong.
Investors include the NBA, Alibaba Entrepreneurs Fund, Joe Tsai (Owner, Brooklyn Nets and NY Liberty), Dreamers (the venture fund of movie star Will Smith and Japanese football star Keisuke Honda), Harris Blitzer Sports Entertainment (Ownership, 76ers), Mark Cuban (Owner, Dallas Mavericks), and pro athletes including Steve Nash, Jeremy Lin, Bradley Beal, Sue Bird, Matthew Dellavedova, Joe Harris, Al Horford, Jewell Loyd, Mason Plumlee, Miles Plumlee, and JJ Redick.
The latest training to arrive at Homecourt is "esports battles". Battle Mode enables any user to play traditional sports games with their friends on HomeCourt, just like they would be playing an online video game, no matter where they are or when they are playing.
eSports are no longer relegated to the couch.
We believe that Homecourt are one of the first to really tackle AR sports training at home and we are really looking forward to other AI developers taking on different sports.
