The First Hybrid Soccer Ball You Can See Through

‘A strategic intelligence embassy’ or the “CTRUS” is a see-through soccer ball that imitates the bounce of an inflated pneumatic soccer ball envisioned by AGENT, but without losing the air, giving transparency to the game of soccer.

‘A strategic intelligence embassy’ or the “CTRUS” is a see-through soccer ball that imitates the bounce of an inflated pneumatic soccer ball envisioned by AGENT, but without losing the air, giving transparency to the game of soccer.

Claimed to be ‘the first soccer ball you can see through’, CTRUS’ functional principle is based on the mechanical properties of its materials, i.e. an inner structure (skelle-core) and an outer net-embedded shell, which is carved out of reinforced elastomer to make it more flexible in comparison to regular soccer balls.

The hybrid soccer ball comes integrated with an interactive detection system that communicating wirelessly with control stations at the stadium changes its color to display the critical game situations, such as goal, offside, kick force, travel speed and if the ball is over the goal line or outside the field of play, via a GPS/RFID inner light.
