Improving your technique is never an easy task. It is hard to objectively analyze yourself, even when a friend is telling you what to do and how you can improve. Wouldn’t it be great if you could actually see yourself making a shot, and afterwards take a step back and analyze it yourself? Well, Adidas has made sure you can do exactly this. Adidas snapshot allows you to record yourself while practicing and gives you the info about the shot you have made. The speed, the angle and the distance of the shot is recorded and you can also watch it in slow motion and frame by frame. The first one to test this app was Gareth Bale. Can you beat his score?
