SOLOSHOT tracks the athlete as he moves

Ever since technology made video cameras small and light enough to wear comfortably on the body, manufacturers have been busy one-upping each other with features like GPS tracking, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth streaming, integrated internet uploading, remote controls and of course, better filming capabilities.

You can change your pass selection quickly as you spot receivers

Having recently finished watching the final episode of that great football drama series Friday Night Lights I have a new found love for all things NFL. Over the years I have enjoyed the Madden games very much, but this year I'm even more attuned to the game because of the exploits of the Dillon Panthers and the Lions.

The game was released at the end of August for PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita, Nintedo Wii (with a Wii U version in the offing) and Xbox 360.
