    And you thought a G-tech was cool!

    Or pump it full of pseudoephedrine! See your local bikie gang for your supply.

    The website states it has hand sensing technology. I wonder what speed that measures eek! head_ban eek!

    G'day

    I know a guy with a cricket store so I will ask him tomorrow - Ive seen golf simulators with similar devices in the golf balls being hit into a screen and somehow they measure everything (or make it up based upon a good guess which is more likely)

    I'm guessing Glen McGrath doesnt use one and it is a good gimmick and not very accurate - enough to amuse kids and win bets

    PS wonder if it will measure how fast Muralithuran chucks it too?

    regards
    Scott

    I'm sure i can ask him for you! wink

    I'd love to see how accurate it is though, i'm sure it won't be; but at nearly $60 for a cricket ball you reckon it should be "close"
