If somebody mentioned the word ‘Technology’ to you, your first thought would likely be to your cell phone and the robots that went into making it. And who can blame you?
What you aren’t likely to consider, however, is the type of technology, that is included in the sporting equipment.
If you are interested in tech (and if you’re reading this then you are) and you want to learn about some interesting sporting implementations, keep reading.
To think, there was once a time where the umpire in a game of Cricket decided whether or not the ball actually skimmed the wicket or whether it was a clean pass.
Turn on a game of cricket now, however, and you will not only find that a number of sensors and cameras have been placed inside the cricket wickets which report data back to a control room.
With this information, they can determine the ball’s speed, angle, and even temperature!
Walking All Over Tech
Head to the Groupon Coupons page for The Walking Company, and you’re likely to find sports shoes which include sensors or at the least, space for one.
Companies like Nike offer small devices which you can implant in your shoe and receive real-time data to your cell phone. This information is use to learn your running speed and distance, along with any training enhancements it has noticed, such as issues rolling your feet or hitting the pavement too hard.
If you have ever wondered how coaches were able to tell just how much spin was on the ball of the pitcher they’re training, the answer is inside the ball itself.
Lodged inside the ball are some sensors which record all aspects of the ball’s motion. This information allows coaches to map out the journey of a ball, its speed throughout its journey, and where and when it spun or made alterations to its course.
With most focus on technology being in the consumer-facing market it can be a shock to realize the penetration that technology has on our lives without us even knowing.
