For developing a novel kind of entertaining football and football training, we developed a playware ball prototype. The ball contains a microprocessor with WiFi connection and uses barometric pressure sensors and accelerometer data to track the ball movement in fast-paced football training games. The ball communicates with a tablet, on which games were developed that used the tracking of both skill level and the level of activity of the users. This kind of playware should motivate the users to play and have fun with the interactive ball. The initial findings indicate that the sensor fusion of barometric pressure data and accelerometer data proves reliable in the fast-paced setting of football games. Furthermore, the constructed prototype foam exercise ball proved a reliable container to house both the sensor and computational devices in a safe manner and could be useful for further tests on other aspects of combining gaming and physical exercise.
