FWD Powershot by Quattriuum

September 5, 2013 Leave a comment Go to comments

Hi folks!

Wanna pass along some info on a neat new product from Quattriuum. They have designed the FWD Powershot; a sensor that is inserted into the shaft of your hockey stick, and can be used to measure and track all sorts of user specific data about you and your shot. I know the radar shooting station was always my favorite part of hockey school, and this little gizmo allows you to essentially bring a radar gun with you every time you play or practice. It also has the potential to help you see very pointed areas of where you could improve that you would otherwise not be conscious of. Have a read, support their Kickstarter campaign, and maybe even buy one!

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 

Montréal, PQ

Quattriuum has begun a Kickstarter campaign to support the consumer launch of the FWD Powershot sensor, a game-changing hockey innovation.

Executing shots with power and speed is vital for every hockey player. Come release day, a major technological innovation will forever change the way amateur and professional athletes train for this sport.

Designed by Quattriuum, the FWD Powershot is a sensor that attaches to your hockey stick, allowing you to measure different aspects of your performance. With the Powershot, you can measure the acceleration and speed of your stick, the duration and angle of movement, and the speed of your stick’s rotation. The Powershot also estimates the speed of the puck in game situations, without radar.

The technology in the FWD Powershot helps you learn more about how you play and identifies your strengths and weaknesses. You can follow your progress over time and compare your performance with that of other players. You can also share your results on social networks.

“Because we’re passionate about sports and cutting-edge technology, we realized there was no technological solution that allowed players to push their talent one step further. We combined our strengths to create an accessible and ultra-efficient tool, something that would bring science to our national sport. Now we’re looking for passionate players like you to back our project on the crowdfunding site Kickstarter,” said Olivier Munger, President and Chief Technology Officer at Quattriuum.

How does it work?

The FWD Powershot is a user-friendly, high-performance miniaturized platform that allows real-time processing of algorithms that detect and analyze complex movements. The Powershot is specially designed to measure the range of shooting techniques in hockey. The system is a powerful asset for players looking to push their skills to the next level, fast.

The FWD Powershot works hand in hand with the FWD Sportscard App, which sends and displays the Powershot’s tracked data via Bluetooth, and allows you to analyze, share and compare your data with others.

Founded in 2007 by a group of tech-savvy entrepreneurs, Quattriuum specializes in motion tracking and analysis.

Drawing on its team’s specialized expertise in the areas of telecommunications, microelectronics and computing, the company aims to export these competencies to other sectors and increase the range of potential applications.

Inspired by a deep understanding of the digital nature of movement, Quattriuum is working to create products for amateur and professional athletes, as well as sports organizations. Our goal is to help players understand, learn more about and improve how they play as individuals and as members of a team.

FWD Powershot retails for $149.99
