The latest report says that FIFA has approved Sono’s product to go to market.

“It’s like you are stealing, but [since it has been approved] we can market it to the world.”

Sono’s son, Matsimela, was also available to provide more details.

“What this does is motion sense technology. It is wearable football technology that goes on to your boot, it is completely comfortable,” he said.

“It is completely durable. It has a five-hour recording time with a three charging time. The player can see how many times he has passed the ball, how many time has received the ball, the spring leg and kick velocity.

“It really takes all the data that the normality tracking vest GPS cannot give you in terms of distance covered,” he concluded.
