6. Square Off Chess  - not exactly sports, but still cool
SQUARE OFF, “WORLD’S SMARTEST CHESS BOARD"
Square Off is one of the hottest new game products in recent years. The world's smartest automated chess board combines the experience of playing real chess with fascinating technological innovation and the excitement of seeing the opponent’s pieces move across the board as if guided by an invisible hand.

The mobile app allows you to connect with millions of players around the globe as well as with friends and family, whether across the country or across town.

3. Babolat Pure Aero (new)
www.babolat.com

Get out on the tennis court this fall and winter!

Developed with Rafael Nadal, the newest iteration confirms the Pure Aero as the racket of reference for spin. For Babolat like any tennis player, tennis is a lot more than just winning. It’s about striving to improve, challenging others, and always getting better by being fueled by fight. The new Pure Aero channels this very same spirit: Babolat took a successful racket, dared to enhance it, and raised the overall performance by increasing control and feel.

Since the launch of the first Aero racket in 2005, Babolat has continued to improve its aerodynamic concept through a series of innovations bringing increased power and spin that have made this racket so successful with a total of 19 Grand Slam wins. Now with added stability and feel that today’s players demand, the new

Pure Aero ushers in the next chapter of Babolat’s success story.
To appreciate the step forward the Pure Aero represents, it’s important to understand the evolution of the modern game, and especially the use of spin by today’s players. Alex Israel, tennis category manager explains,

“Spin has become essential in tennis. Originally used as a defensive tactic to wear out an opponent, players now apply spin as an offensive move to create an advantage within the point. And as the game becomes faster, they are now looking for more precision.”

In developing the optimal spin-friendly innovation, Babolat asked 3500+ testers worldwide an important question: Which racket benefits on a Pure Aero frame are most important to you?
With Chomarat, Babolat engineers developed an innovative solution to maximize stability in the racket. Carbon Ply Stabilizer is a new generation of woven and sewn carbon fibers integrated in the throat of the racket to give the new Pure Aero extraordinary stability. This carbon is more rigid, bringing more stability at impact, which increases control.
