Interactive and transparent football for days after FIFA World Cup ’10

While FIFA is readying footballs with embedded microchips to establish the goal-line technology possibly by the FIFA World Cup 2010, AGENT, a strategic intelligence embassy has revealed a transparent football concept dubbed the CTRUS. Fair play could creep in ever so well in the game of soccer if something like this interactive detection system, GPS and RFID included ball can make to the fore. This would mean easier identification of those close calls over the goal line, or the side line. Make obvious the off sides, and provide transparency in decisions like the ‘hand of God’ and the more recent Thierry Henry’s controversial handball goal against Ireland. The inner structure of the CTRUS is made in skelle-core while the outside of the ball features a net-embedded shell, which leaves the ball to be the first transparent soccer ball. More images and video demonstration of the ball after the jump.
