What if an Arduino/Android solution was added to a regular basketball board to track my basketball training workouts? Let's go for it!

Hi, thanks, and sorry for the delay in responding. Yes, if you look attempting to the photos you'll see that I didn't attach the net to the hook nearest to the basketball board, this created a "hole" to the proximity sensor, even so sometimes I get some "false positives" when the ball hits the ring head-on and makes the net go up too much. I added the adjust buttons to the app to use in these cases.
Hi, thanks, and sorry for the delay in responding. I used the MIT App Inventor so you can download the .aia file located in the "Code" section and easily import to http://ai2.appinventor.mit.edu/ and build the apk. I can also let the apk available somewhere, please let me know.
Hi, thanks and sorry for the delay in responding. This idea is really interesting but unless you always shot from the same direction I think you would need several sensors to cover the entire area, wouldn't you? Here is a list of available distance sensors that could be used: https://www.sparkfun.com/distance_sensor_comparison_guide.
