This Golf Ball Could Help You Cheat by Finding Hole Every Time
(Bloomberg) -- Japan’s Nissan Motor Co. has developed a golf ball that will help you make a putt with your eyes closed.
As a proof of concept, the carmaker unveiled a video on Tuesday, whereby a toddler taps a ball with his club and makes a putt that would make Tiger Woods’ jaw drop.
Here’s how it works: Nissan placed an overhead camera to detect the position of the ball and cup. When the ball moves, a monitoring system calculates the correct route and adjusts its trajectory. Coupled with an internal electric motor, the golf ball stays on course until dropping into the cup, according to the carmaker.
