Introducing GEN i2

GEN i2 is everything a golf simulator has to offer embedded inside a golf ball. That’s right, the technology is inside the golf ball. Play full rounds with friends or connect to tournaments through the app, play a full round under an hour, or take it out on the course and get live accurate feedback during your round! This is the solution to all your golfing problems!  

Connecting To The App

Download the user friendly app and create a profile. Once your profile is created, all you’ll need to do is connect your sensors, select your gaming or training experience, then start playing.

With our mobile gaming, you will be able to play with friends near and far or join tournaments for prizes via the internet.  

With GEN i2's coaching, you will get data points that are IMPORTANT to your swing and will tell you what to do with that information.

  • Golf ball- USGA regulation weight and feel. In other words, this ball looks and feels just like a normal golf ball, only it’s smarter.
  • Hip and club sensors- 9 axis sensors that calculate what your club and body are doing to give you live feedback about your game.
  • Multi Terrain Mat- A mat to use in your home or office so that you can have an authentic golfing experience with greens, fairways, and rough.
  • Easy Pop-up Net- No more costly and bulky hitting bays. Easily pop up the net in seconds indoor or outdoors. 
  • Free Android and iOS app- The app will give you data about your swing, allow you to connect with online players, or just simply play a round whenever and wherever.

Amazing Features   

The GEN i2 is a full simulator golf ball that is meant for indoor or outdoor use. By putting the sensor inside the ball, we are able to give you the ultimate golfing experience for a fraction of the cost. Simulators can cost thousands, as can membership fees to the clubs, so we made it possible for you to play your favorite courses on your phone anytime and anywhere. Set up takes seconds with our popup tent, mat, and user friendly app! Whether you are inside or outside, just connect your ball sensor, club sensor, and body sensor to the app via Bluetooth, swing, and start playing. For those golfers who feel confident enough, take your ball and play it on the course! While playing, you will get live feedback about your ball's distance and your body movement! Don’t like a swing? Request instant feedback from our Quick Coaching and see how to improve on the spot! 

In The News 

 The GEN i2 had its first unveiling at the 2018 PGA show in Orlando Florida. Below are some of the different publication companies that featured us on their websites and that attended this unveiling while at the show!

 The Design 

The GEN i2 is designed for golfers ranging in all ages and levels.  It's even safe for kids!  Whether you are a seasoned player who wants to receive live feedback about your swing on the course or a beginner who is too embarrassed to learn and can’t afford coaching; The GEN i2 not only improves your game, but is also fun to play amongst friends and family.  

Easy Set Up and Breakdown 

Our simulator comes with a popup net and a mat that not only takes up less space, but is significantly easier to set up and breakdown. Its safe to use anywhere you want to set up: your living room, garage, patio, den, or office! Play then GEN i2 anywhere, anytime, no more excuses!  

When broken down, the net and mat take up barely any space! Store it under your bed, in the garage, or in any closet!
