AI Automatic Tracking

This app solves the problems of parents who film their children's sports scenes, such as "I really want to see it with my own eyes" and "I want to film it better". It also facilitates post-game video sharing via a dedicated app and supports effective play and team analysis.

The live broadcast function also makes it easy to share the video with those who cannot come to the field.

Live Transmission

■Background of Product Development

Until now, the only way to film a play while watching sports was to hold a digital camera or smartphone in one hand. Or, when filming on a tripod, you are forced to shoot from a fixed point. So, after searching the world over for an AI gadget that would automatically shoot sports, we came up with XbotGo. There are gimbals out there that can lock on to a subject and automatically track and shoot. However, there is no gadget that is linked to a smartphone that can automatically track sports play. As a gadget that is linked to a smartphone, you can enjoy various functions through the application.

XbotGo2 is also useful in terms of filming sports and utilizing the videos for analysis. The videos are stored in the application's cloud and can be easily downloaded to your smartphone. You can immediately share the videos you have taken with your family and friends.

We believe that this product will provide a new lifestyle for people who enjoy sports, their families, and those who want to improve their sports skills.

Comment from the person in charge

I myself play soccer, and I take videos of myself playing and edit them to create highlights. I use it for various purposes, such as creating memories of important games and analyzing videos to improve my skills. We believe that being able to immediately send the videos you have taken via LINE, etc. or share them in real time via live distribution will lead to a great experience. A remote controller is also included in the package, allowing remote control up to 10 meters away. In addition to soccer, the system can be used for more than 20 other sports, so we expect it to be the perfect partner for sports activists.

(Target sports: soccer, basketball, ice hockey, volleyball, beach volleyball, rugby, badminton, tennis, table tennis, football, lacrosse, futsal, boxing, fencing, taekwondo, figure skating, gymnastics, dance, yoga, etc.)
