USA Cricket: California based ThrowMotion taking pre-orders for its Wifi enabled cricket game

ThrowMotion, Inc., a start-up located in Silicon Valley, which is revolutionizing table-top cricket gaming announced that it is now taking pre-orders from early adopters for a limited number of its advanced table-top units.  These pre-orders are being invited primarily in the Bay Area.

The game is a brainchild of Aditya Dayal, whose resume includes instrument design at NASA's Jet Propulsion Lab.   Aditya holds bachelors degrees in Physics and Mathematics, and a PhD in Astronomy from the University of Arizona.   Aditya is a firm believer that realism of cricket can be brought indoors. 

ThrowMotion has combined physics of ball dynamics and engineering in a unique way to create the ultimate table game.  The game uses intuitive and easy to use controls to deliver a realistic experience with a striking resemblance to the real sport.  Built-in electronics and gaming logic bring the game to life – calling plays, keeping track of scores and keeping the match moving forward.

ThrowMotion tested the game among cricket-playing and non cricket-playing audiences at beta sites including the offices of Silicon Valley companies such as Google and Juniper.   The response was extremely positive with some 13,000 balls bowled and 23,000 runs scored. 

One Google employee wrote: "I recently saw the unit in building 43 when I had my niece visiting on Google Kids Day last week. Lots of people were playing with the game and my niece got a chance to play the game for a few minutes -- she actually got the hang of it! I love the game. Super fun to play!"

The ThrowMotion unit is 36 inches wide, 54 inches deep and 32 inches tall.  The playing field is 26 inches by 34 inches.  The game weighs 100 lbs.
