Made Perfectly Every Time
This airless ball is 3D printed in one piece. It has the same size and weight of a regular basketball. It is not assembled like a traditional basketball and therefore, it can be made perfectly every time.
You won't ever have to worry about inflating this basketball with air, either. The cost to make this basketball will also be much cheaper than a regular basketball.
It's a see through basketball that doesn't need to be inflated. The 3D printing makes it a perfect sphere every time. Once the initial prototype was completed, the basketball was taken to a facility for rigorous testing, including getting hit with a baseball bat really hard.
The ball will most likely last longer than a normal basketball as well. Wilson worked with a company, EOS, that works with rocket ships.
When Will We See It?
The ball needs to be used in some actual basketball games to see if it works the same as a regular rubber basketball. If it is found to work the exact same as a regular basketball game, then I don't see any reason why this won't be used because it is the same size and weight as a normal basketball.
