An Easy Product Solution to a Common Tennis Problem

One of the most tedious aspects when playing any ball sport game is having to constantly go down and pick up a ball after its fallen to continue the game. Recognizing that this could be an issue for most players, designer Kim Seunghyun and Yu Yunjo designed the ‘Pick a Ball’ Tennis Picker! Our Texas product design agency loves how this product takes the traditional design of a tennis racket but includes a Velcro sticker on the outer rim of the racket. Once having to need to pick up your tennis ball, pressing down upon the ball with the racket will lift the ball up for you to easily grab from your racket, but the attachment of the Velcro to the ball. Not only is this a smart and efficient way to continue playing your game quicker but saves you the worry and backache of having to constantly bend down and pick up other balls.

An Innovative Tennis Product Created by our Texas Product Design Agency, the ROVER Packhopper!

The Rover Pack Hopper is a sport, fitness, and recreational product invention created through Mako Designs’ top industrial design services by our client, Eric Coffman! Made for tennis players and fans everywhere, Eric’s inspiration for the ROVER Packhopper was to create a way to make it easier to carry everything you need to practice and play a great and efficient session of tennis. The ROVER Packhopper is a backpack specially made for tennis that is able to hold up to 85 tennis balls, as well as a large pocket for racquets, numerous small pockets for accessories, and mesh pockets for water bottles. Our Texas product design agency made sure that the backpack is easy to carry and can be wheeled around easily around tennis courts and other terrains. With extendable legs, the ROVER Packhopper can raise tennis balls to the exact height that you need to help feed tennis balls to help work and practice on your service. If you want to watch yourself serve and practice, the ROVER Packhopper can hold your phone through a handy compartment and film you while your practice, making it possible to monitor and watch your progress.

A Convenient and Efficient Tennis Product

If you’re more of an intense player that uses tennis ball machines to constantly challenge and test your quick skills in serving and receiving, you probably know that too often more than not, by the end of your practice, your tennis court is covered in tennis balls! After an intense practice, spending the extra time and effort of having to clean up the court by hand not only carries extra weight onto your back and shoulder but can waste a lot of time and energy that your body would rather much spend by getting the rest it needs. The Ball Boy is an innovative product design made for tennis that our Texas product design agency believes that tennis enthusiasts will love as it helps to automatically collect all tennis balls left on your court in the simplest and efficient way possible. The belt features a Velcro material to help pick up the balls and open up like a drawer so you can easily take out each ball. The design works almost like a lawnmower were all you need to do is pull and drive forward the product towards any ball on the court and wait for the machine to pick it up on its own.

A Fun Tennis Inspired Product for That our Texas Product Design Agency Loves!

The HearO is a fun product that every tennis fan would love and appreciate, and what’s even greater about it, is that it can be taken with you anywhere no matter where you go! The HearO is a tennis-inspired twist onto the traditional Bluetooth speaker that takes old tennis balls and repurposes and recycles them into Bluetooth speakers. The audio quality is not obstructed by the material of the tennis ball but rather maintain great sound and is placed inside a small tennis ball that can fit in your bag, and is easily portable to bring along with you anywhere! Whether you have the speaker at home on your desk, or along with your on the court, the HearO is a great addition to the life of a tennis fan that our Texas product design agency loves in that it combines both a much needed and popular product (Bluetooth speaker), with their favorite hobby!
