What’s inside a Wilson X Basketball?

What’s inside a Wilson X Basketball?

– This is it. – Uh oh. – This is the one. (screaming) – Hello. Welcome back to What’s Inside? I’m Lincoln and this is Dan and today we have a basketball. – A very smart basketball. – It’s very smart. – Some would say the smartest
basketball you’ve ever seen. Somewhere inside of this ball it’s a Wilson X Smart basketball. It has something in it
that talks to your devices that helps you learn how
to play basketball better. – It’s smart. – Lincoln really, really
needs to learn how to play basketball better. Right? (laughing) – Guess so. – He’s a good ball player. Let’s see how the thing works and then let’s cut it open
see what’s inside of it and then tell you more about it because I think is gonna become something that becomes just standard in our family for Lincoln training. – If we get another one
after we cut this one open. – We’ll definitely need to get another one and this is not a sponsored video. This is just something that
we thought was super cool and it’s like college basketball season and NBA season right now. This is Elijah Bryant, this is Jenelle Bryant. They have a channel called the EB&J. – [Man] Boom shaka laka. – I think this ball will
be very useful just for little kids who can see
their actually really stats of how many shots they’ve
made for the workout so. – [Dan] So let’s test this thing out. Have you ever used one of these before? – Never have. I’ve used Dr. Dish. They actually put something
in the annex that tracks our shots. It’s similar to this but this
is all inclusive to the ball and the app. – So Elijah plays basketball for BYU. It’s a college in Utah. They are in the West Coast Conference. I think you’re what? 11 and
three now at this point? – [Elijah] 11, two. – 11 and two. 11 and two. Leading the West Coast Conference. Play hasn’t started in the conference yet. Are you the leading scorer on the team? – Uhhhh. I think so. Yeah. 16.3 or something like that. – [Dan] Something close to that. – Something like that. – Maybe 16.25. Kay, we’re gonna do this. Let’s see how this ball works. So the way that this one works is it gives you 20 seconds on the clock and so for every two point shot you make you get a certain number of seconds like five seconds added to it. For every three pointer you make you get like eight or
nine seconds added to it. And so you can just keep playing. Like you could play this all day long but your clock is gonna run out
the more shots that you miss. So you kind of got to keep
making if you wanna keep going so… – And then when you, I saw when
you get the last 10 seconds, you get more seconds if you make a shot. – Ooohh. Okay. All right. So when the pressure’s on. – And you’re clutch. – You get more seconds. Let’s give Lincoln a shot with this. – Oh no. (electronic music) – This was kind of weird
like Lincoln was shooting from right here and it wasn’t
counting it after a while. I wonder if it’s… – [Lincoln] Why didn’t you tell me that? – I’m just the camera man. That’s all. Okay Lincoln wants one more shot at this. That was his warmup round. He made seven out of 18 shots. He played for a minute and 21 seconds. Let’s see if you can get longer. It’s all about the time here. (electronic music) Three. Two. One. Oh it didn’t count it. Has to go in before. Ooooooooooooh okay. 56 seconds. Two for 11. (mumbling) What? You feel like in your
mind you made more than you did? – Yeah. – [Dan] Can you beat a
minute and 21 seconds? – We’ll see what I can do. I’m gonna shoot threes. I’m gonna try to shoot
all threes right now. (hip hop beat) – [Dan] Is this what he
usually does just like all day just makes it? – Yeah. All day. I’m the rebounder though. – [Dan] Really? – It’s not that fun. (laughing) – [Dan] Well you’ve officially
beat Lincoln so there’s that. There we go okay. Let’s just let it go from here. Lincoln’s tired. He needs a drink. He needs a nap after that. All right how do you feel
about your performance as the clock goes down. – It was good. Started getting a little
winded toward the end started missing shots. – [Dan] Blame it on your rebounder maybe. – Yeah what was going on Lincoln? – [Dan] You probably should
shoot more threes in the games ’cause it seems like you’re
a higher percentage there. – That’s what I tend to do. – I purposely wore jeans
and long sleeved shirt ’cause I didn’t wanna have to
embarrass myself on camera. So this probably won’t even
make the cut but after watching Lincoln go three times and Elijah going I gotta give it a shot. This is just too fun. How did I do? Three minutes 38 seconds. (laughing) Says I only made four threes. – So it probably missed about four shots and it gave you some shots
as well when it hit the rim. – It shows that you made
some when you didn’t and then when you make some
sometimes it doesn’t give you credit. If you swish it straight
through and it hits the ground a lot of time it doesn’t
think that it went through so if you can hit the
rim and have it drop down or if you swish it and it
spins in the net a little bit I think it’s good. Woooo. I’m out of breath. Lincoln you need to do
it one more time because you can’t have your dad beat you. (circus music) Look at those numbers. (buzzer buzzing) (laughing) How are you feeling buddy? How many shots do you think you took? – Hundred. – [Dan] You made 40 shots out of 100. What percentage do you think that is? – 40%. (laughing) – Oh dang. I tried to trick him
with some dorky dad math. It didn’t work. Yeah to be fair to Elijah
we made Elijah stop. If we had Elijah go he’d
probably go for like an hour and he’s got practice later today so we don’t want to hurt him too much. He’s got big game coming up. Jenelle thinks that the
actual chip is right here in this spot and it makes
sense because on the other side there’s the air side of it even though it has the Bluetooth logo. But this is where it must be. This is it. – Uh oh. – This is the one. (screaming) I’ve always wanted to do that. Dang that went right through it. Just to be careful. I’m gonna do it to myself away
from you guys a little bit. I’m going straight for the circle. I hope that’s where the technology is and Wilson if you’re watching this you are more than welcome
to send us another ball. – You want a kid’s ball
or a real-size ball? – No, real-size. – Real-size. – Real-size. (ball dropping) – Okay. We got it. Look at this hole in the ball. Here we go. You get one shot to make it with a flat ball that has a hole in it. Can he do it? (screaming) Look at that thing. All right this it? You think that’s it? – It has to be. – [Dan] We still don’t know much more. When I was throwing
this up earlier the ball it felt like it was a little bit lopsided. It seems like that’s heavy
enough to make it wobble. – Wobble, wobble. – I don’t know when it moves. Something about it
vibrating, I don’t know. – [Dan] Looks like we have more, I have more work to do here. (hip hop beat) Oh yes. What’s inside of this sensor that’s inside the Wilson X ball? Oh. – Is… – Wait is it liquid? – Oh it’s a battery. – It’s having a baby. Whoa. What? – Is that? – Ew, it’s slimy. – I’m not touching that. – [Elijah] I wonder if it moves
inside that little capsule. – [Dan] When the ball spins it
can sense the rotation of it. That is interesting and on
this top side it looks like that’s the battery like right there. – [Elijah] Yeah. – [Dan] It’s gotta have
something to get that RFID chip. – [Elijah] So does it ever die? – [Dan] I don’t know. – I don’t wanna touch it. – [Dan] Touch it. It’s not bad. (battery dropping on floor) Does it sense it? It doesn’t sense it. Try it again. Oh no it’s ready. – [Elijah] Uh oh. – Oh no way. – [Dan] What he made it? – Yeah. – Yeah but it doesn’t know because it’s zero for two yep. Okay so there’s a science to it. It’s not just the chip. The way that it spins,
the way that it talks. It has something to do with it. (smacking battery) What happened? (laughing) I split the thing. Well I just chopped the battery out of it. That’s a pretty heavy duty battery. Will that run out of battery? It could. This is all the technology inside of it with the motherboard, the chip’s inside. – [Lincoln] You can
definitely see the chip. That’s the main chip that
makes the ball be cool. – [Dan] The ball be cool? – Cooler than other balls. (laughing) – [Dan] There’s nothing
else that’s inside of this plastic part right here. – [Lincoln] Just a bunch of gooey stuff. – Just a bunch of gooey, slimy stuff. So it was nice to have our
basketball expert friend with us and his wife Jenelle from EB&J. They just hit 2,000 subscribers. Can we get them to 10,000
subscribers in the next week? – So right now, right now
everyone go and subscribe to them. Do it right now. – Watch the video that’s on their channel. We’ll link it and make
sure you subscribe while you’re watching the
video and ring that bell. Let’s see if we can get it to 10,000. – Let’s do it. – You just need to get a bell. You need to ring the bell? – A cowbell? – A cowbell. So someone needs to get a bell, like a… – Cowbell. – I’m losing you bud. We have a little surprise
for you that watched that are true friends that
watched the full video. We all signed it. Lincoln, me, Elijah, Jenelle. This was the ball that was cut open. You can’t really play ball with it but if you would like to have this we’re gonna give it away to somebody. We’ll put the link in the description. Also go watch Elijah and Jenelle’s video and they’ll have more
information in there on it but if you want this broken basketball it’s yours. Just do the steps below.
