hoop

Remember the old Nerf hoop set? The one you used to do imaginary dunks on after watching Nate Robinson (dang I feel old) win the dunk contest? The one you shot wads of paper through into a trash can at the office?

It got a high tech makeover, though by a different company. EastPoint Sports' Wireless Basketball Set not only keeps track of the score via a sensor inside the hoop, it will even play a crowd roar sound effect after each bucket. Kids today have it so easy -- we used to have to make our own fake crowd noise when we dunked on our friends. [h/t Gizmodo]
