AUSTIN/PITTSBURGH – With the goal of providing the most advanced training methods to hitters in baseball and softball, WIN Reality and Diamond Kinetics have come together to create the most revolutionary, game-changing, hitting experience in the world.
WHAT IS IT?
Real Swings. Real Feedback. Real Results
Hitters will now be able to connect WIN’s VR Oculus Quest 2 controller and DK’s SwingTracker to their very own bat and take real, game-speed, practice at-bats from anywhere… in a true virtual environment.
By combining WIN Reality’s virtual-reality based technology with Diamond Kinetics’ SwingTracker Bat Sensor into a singular, real-life training experience, players will have the opportunity to understand the swing and train like never before.
With WIN Reality VR, hitters will be able to accurately recognize pitches, discern the difference between a strike and a ball, and to make their swing decision during the optimal timing window.
At the same time, DK’s SwingTracker will also allow them to gain insights into bat path, barrel speed, contact point, launch angle, and projected hit distance – all shown in WIN Reality’s virtual environment.

MORE ABOUT THIS PROJECT
Through extensive research from WIN Reality’s team that includes R&D, Performance Science, Data Science, Innovation, Software Engineering, as well as former professional baseball and softball players, the company developed the ability for the Oculus Quest controller to visualize a real bat in virtual reality.
This development meant hitters could use WIN Reality’s VR-based application with a real bat, as opposed to a player taking ‘swings’ with the Oculus controller
With the controller responsible for visualizing the bat in VR, WIN Reality needed a device that could be the main source of accurate swing path tracking.
This is where Diamond Kinetics comes in.
WIN Reality began independently researching and evaluating bat sensors. To test and gather data on all that was needed, the WIN team relied on laser measurements, motion capture technology, and high speed cameras in its Research and Development Lab to determine if the data returned by a given sensor was accurate.
According to WIN Reality’s test results, “Diamond Kinetics proved that they could provide the training experience our users needed because of their reliability and accuracy.”
From there, WIN Reality developed a calibration process that utilizes both Oculus tracking and Diamond Kinetics tracking to ensure accuracy during a real swing. After further testing with a wide array of players and swing techniques, WIN made even more refinements and is now set for public testing.
THE BENEFITS OF THE PROGRAM
The coupling of WIN Reality with Diamond Kinetics is a perfect combination between two companies that are consistently striving to push baseball & softball training forward to give future generations of players accurate and beneficial training.
