Whether we’re talking Jordan, Kobe, LeBron, or even KD, imitating your favorite basketball player’s go-to move on your driveway’s hoop is a cherished pastime. Now, that casual activity is about to be leveled up. With such rapid advancements in the world of fitness tech, it was only a matter of time until a band of pro-level basketball trainers delivered a high-tech device to help you be more like Mike while getting your shots up. Meet HUUPE, the world’s very first smart basketball hoop.
The Peloton-like device is a dream for ballers looking for an authentic playing experience. From one-on-one training sessions to the option of streaming HBO Max or ESPN, the HUUPE is built to entertain the most rigorous hoopers. It also comes equipped with outdoor speakers that offer seamless Bluetooth connectivity, allowing you to cue your workout playlist when you’re out there perfecting your jumper.
With several different training programs that test your shooting percentage, trajectory, speed, agility, and endless other aspects of your game, you can think of HUUPE as more of a personal training session than you do a mere game of shootaround. With many professional trainers, you can rest assured that you’re getting the tips you need. And while athletic big men like Dennis Clifford and smooth scorers like Joe Sherburne aren’t necessarily household names, they are examples of just how broad the game stretches beyond superstars like Giannis and Steph.
If you’re tired of waiting around at your local park to run a pick-up game, then make things easier by moving the training experience to the heart of your home. The HUUPE Smart Hoop is set to retail for $3,995 and is currently available for pre-order with a $100 deposit.
