1. Wireless Remote Caddy for full game control
2. A regulation Surlyn golf-ball on a lightweight, flexible tether connected to a double ball bearing pivot arrangement to reproduce the mechanical dynamics of free-ball impact for accurate feel and impact sound (user replaceable) 3. LPDR is a sophisticated software driving range simulator for Golf Launchpad. LPDR provides swing and shot analysis, featuring aircraft style instrumentation. shot speed and angle, as well as ball launch data and tajectory graphs. 4. Play the full game from driving to putting with all your clubs. 5. Optical sensors and digital signal processing circuitry measure the clubs' motion through impact, including parameters such as club-speed, club face-angle and club-path and translate this data into simulated ball flight in the game. Plug the Golf Launchpad PC/Mac/PS3 USB Edition into your USB port and play Pebble Beach, St. Andrews, Bethpage Black, and the other premiere courses in EA Sports TIGER WOODS PGA TOUR (2003–2008) or Microsoft Links with incredible realism.

How it works?
Golf Launchpad's tethered ball has been designed to reproduce the impact-physics of a free ball to perfection. Not an easy task as club head/ball collision is a complex phenomenon involving forces of up to a ton. Utilising a flexible tether (which permits the ball to spin) and a precisely calibrated pivot Golf Launchpad's ball is designed to impart the same forces to the club as a free ball. This means that you feel and hear the thwack of your irons and the ping of your woods just as you would on the fairway. We call this TruFeel™ and it is the subject of several patent applications. Optical sensors embedded deep under the turf track your club over the sensor grid during the critical moment of impact measuring vast quantities of data off your club such as angle velocity acceleration and path. Electric~Spin’s state-of-the-art digital signal processing technology embedded in Golf Launchpad converts the mountains of raw data into pinpoint accuracy.
