Frequently Asked Questions

The Vector® Ball Plus has the same great function and utility as the original however, thanks to some design improvements by Eye On Ball Inc. engineers, the The Vector® Ball Plus is stronger and lasts longer.

Vector® Ball is a Cognitive Vision Training (CVT) device. It emits a short burst of light,
randomly changing the color of the ball (Red, Green, or Blue) upon impact (bounced, caught, etc.). This random color change provides unpredictable visual information during athletic drills, therefore facilitating CVT.
Our patented technology was designed into the Vector® Ball to make it the most versatile, durable, and dynamic CVT device available. It facilitates a full spectrum of drills and you can train with the 3-inch Ball almost anywhere.

Yes, multiple patents apply.

Cognitive Vision Training (CVT), sometimes referred to as Neuro-Visual Training, are exercises and drills that improve your information processing ability (the time it takes to respond correctly to a specific situation). A lot happens between your brain receiving information (images), and your brain actioning muscles. This process includes: recognizing images, associating images with previous images, calculating/predicting movement, determining relevance, and coming up with solutions as to what will be done in response to the information received. This is why the brain is the most important part of performance; in the end, muscles simply do what they are told. CVT introduces information during an exercise/drill that provides instruction on what is required next. For example, if the athlete sees “Green” then they must do/go “Left” etc. CVT exercises the brain’s ability to process information, and like muscles, the brain improves with exercise.

It has a hard center core about the size of a golf ball that protects the electronics.  The core is surrounded by a clear thermoplastic (rubber like) shell that absorbs extreme shock and gives the ball its shape and look.

Vector® Ball is approximately 9 inches in circumference and 5 1/4 ounces (similar to a baseball or cricket ball).

Vector® Ball emits a short burst of light, randomly changing the color of the ball (Red, Green, or Blue) each time it is struck, bounced, caught, etc. This provides unpredictable information that enables Cognitive Vision Training (CVT) exercises and drills. For example: if the athlete sees the Vector® Ball turn Red, then they must catch it with their Right hand (execute a specific action associated with the observed color). The result is an improved ability to rapidly transfer visual information into deliberate athletic action (Speed of Reaction).

Vector® Ball is very firm but not hard like a baseball or cricket ball. It is firmer than a tennis ball, but it can be compressed with a strong squeeze.

Yes, Vector® Ball is very durable. It can be thrown, bounced, skipped, etc. against practically any surface (concrete, brick, wood, tile, etc.), at game speed, without damaging the Ball. It is the most versatile and dynamic Cognitive Vision Training (CVT) device available.

Yes, Vector® Ball randomly and instantly changes color (Red, Green, or Blue) with each impact.

Yes, Vector® Ball can be submerged in water without damaging the Ball. Please note that Vector® Ball should not be left outside as prolonged exposure to the elements can degrade it over time.

The Vector® Ball randomly and instantly changes color (red, green, or blue) with each impact.

Vector® Ball color changes are initiated upon impact with almost any surface, including a hand or glove. It requires a firm impact with a rigid surface to change color and will not change color when thrown.

Vector® Ball is engineered to provide twelve (12) months of quality Cognitive Vision Training (CVT). The batteries are not rechargeable however, they are the highest quality available. Please note that battery life is dependent on cycles and durations of use (workouts) but in most cases Vector® Ball will support thousands of CVT exercises before the batteries expire.

Vector® Ball changes color for a split second upon impact and then locks-out for ½ a second before resetting.

Vector® Ball can be used in practically any training environment. Please note that Vector® Ball color changes are difficult to see in direct sunlight.

Yes, Cognitive Vision Training (CVT) with the Vector® Ball is used to improve athletic performance for practically every sport including Baseball, Softball, Lacrosse, Soccer, Basketball, Volleyball, Football, Hockey, Tennis, Pickleball, Cricket, Boxing, Mixed Martial Arts, Motor Sports, and more. Vector® Ball facilitates CVT exercises and drills that improve an athlete’s information processing ability and speed of reaction. Any sport that requires decision making and mental acuity benefits from adding CVT to their training program.

Yes, Cognitive Vision Training (CVT) with the Vector® Ball is for all skill levels and all ages (youth to professional). Vector® Ball facilitates CVT exercises and drills that improve an athlete’s information processing ability and speed of reaction. Anyone wanting to improve their decision making and mental acuity will benefit from adding CVT to their training program.

The Vector® Ball can be used to transform standard training drills into cognitive vision training (CVT) drills.  The number of training drills the Vector® Ball can be used in are infinite.

Terms of Use

Inspect Vector® Ball prior to each use. Conduct a visual inspection checking for signs of damage, including but not limited to rips, cuts, holes, or gouges. Do not leave Vector® Ball outside, as prolonged exposure to elements (sun, rain, etc.) can degrade the Ball. The Vector® Ball contains electronic components housed within a hard-protective casing inside the ball. If the outer shell is damaged it is possible that the hard casing could separate from the Ball and strike a person or property. Do not use if damaged and stop using immediately if damage is noticed.
