IoT In Sports

A few weeks ago we talked about the importance of IoT in the food sector . And today we want to go a little further to show you that in the sports industry there is also a lot of intelligence.
We are increasingly surrounded by the Internet. At home, at work, on bus or train trips. Only with carrying the smartphone we are already linked 24 hours to the Internet. And in the sports industry it was not going to be less.

We can already find from a smartphone that controls your sexual performance to intelligent systems in tennis to modernize the so-called “hawk eye”.
It seems that we no longer know how to run or go to the gym without listening to music on our mobile phone. We have an excessive amount of apps to get in shape by exercising.
In addition, in the market we can already find shoes with Internet, which could be very useful to measure the performance of professional athletes.

What sports have already incorporated the IoT?

This field is still quite new and the use of IoT in sport in a given field has not yet been specified.
But in many occasions it is used as a complement of improvement and analytics for the results of the players. And where are these devices?
Well, in many occasions they are found in the clothes that athletes use, we give you some examples:

This ski-focused weareable has 3 sensors , two located under each of the skis and another that the athlete puts at chest height.

Its function is to accurately detect the improvements that the professional must apply , to improve their performance. Can you imagine beating the competition thanks to the IoT?
Recon Jet smart glasses

These glasses that give an air of Terminator to the cyclist in the picture, are able to give you all the data you need if you are a demanding athlete.

They will tell you the rhythm, the cadence, the effort and the speed that you are doing, they also have a built-in GPS and are designed so that you do not have to look away from the road.
First of all security!
Swimming with smart weareables

And finally, the example we want to give you about IoT in sports is the smart clothes used in swimming.
Many brands are those that bet on inserting sensors in their tissues , which regulate humidity, temperature, athlete's health and the effort it makes.
That way you improve your performance and you can gradually improve your technique. Something we would all love!
But now let's see who are those who have already dared to invest in this sector.

What brands bet on IoT in sports?

In addition to the biggest and best-known sports brands that are already betting on IoT in sports , there are many others that have made great strides. Today we take the opportunity to introduce three:
3D Digital Venue
In short, it consists in the representation of football stadiums in 3D so that anyone can know in advance what their seat will be, how their views will be or where the accesses are located, for example.
So far it has worked with some of the largest such as the Santiago Bernabéu or Wembley .
This idea seemed amazing to me, it arose as a result of the concern about the blows to the head suffered by those who practice this type of sports.

that manufactures football helmets . It has been baptized as Zero1 and uses car technology. Thus they manage to reduce the impacts and as a result avoid brain injuries.
Thermography consists of the graphic recording of the heat emitted by the surface of a body in the form of infrared radiation. Well, based on this, the Thermohuman company has developed a technology that prevents injuries in the world of sports.
In other words, it allows to identify possible injuries or overloads, for those cases in which athletes do not tell the whole truth. The Spanish basketball team is already using it.

What future does this have for people who are not a professional athlete?

Much of this technology is developed for professionals , but everything ends up coming for those who do sports more as a hobby.
Just look at the materials of the clothing or accessories of elite athletes. Products that have just arrived at the sports store in our neighborhood, although in a lighter version.
Well, with the IoT the same thing happens. Many of the technologies that we can find today in our smartphone, may not be developed initially for our mobile .
Therefore it is likely that there is not much left for our ball to carry a built-in chip to know with our smartphone how much physical activity we are doing.

And we can already see sensors that record our heart rate and breathing . Smaller and smaller sensors that also let us know if we are exceeding ourselves.
Tell us which IoT device you would like to use for sports. And if you liked it, share it so that others can read us.

97% vs 3%
Society is divided up between two categories. There's the 97% and the 3%. The 97% are the average people. They work 9-5 jobs, focused too much on their education, don't think outside the box, and simply quit on themselves and their goals (if they had any significantly big ones). Yes, some people chose to be a part of that percentile and that's ok because it's their choice. They wanted it to be easy. But for those who complain about it have no right to. They may be thinking "I work 8 hours a day. I deserve better and should be living a better life." In reality they don't. They knew what they were getting themselves into and what the rest of their life would be like. They have made their choice a have given up on what could have been, for them, a life full of rewards and luxury. They decide to see the obvious instead of what's further ahead, and when they see the obvious, they hurt themselves more by looking at it through one perspective. These are the people who have simply said "I will do my part in society no matter the cost." Education plays a huge factor in your destiny. Some dream jobs do require an advanced education. When this is present, education is ok to take part in for it is needed to achieve a dream. For jobs that don't require education, you simply are spending $100,000 to people who will never know your name. The 3% of people in society are the people who put themselves away from society. They're the entrepreneurs in this world, the people loaded with confidence, they ignore what people say, etc. These people realized they have so much potential in their life and they take the opportunity even when it's not present. To be where they are they took the risks and sacrifices and understood what outcomes could come. Every penny they've ever made was put into what they believed in even if it was a dream or goal so big it scared them. Fear is not present in these people. They realized the only thing that could really stop them was fear therefore they learned to overcome it. No matter the criticism they received, negative comments they've been told, or even simply being told "you can't do it." 24 hours was not enough for them to get what they needed done so they would put in a full 24 hours of work. Now, depending on who they are and their stories, they could have had an easy start or challenging one. Some entrepreneurs were lucky enough to have a family member who already started the business or gave a startup of $1,000,000. But some start with nothing but a dollar and a vision. One feels much more rewarding than the other and causes them to have a bigger appreciation for what they have and have done. The 3% are always hungry no matter what they have. They will not stop until they have what they want. There are many quotes for these people but the quote posted best describes them. So now that you know a little about the two sides of society, which one will you choose? Are you happy with where you stand? Or do you want better? It's never too late to change or start. All it takes is confidence, hard work, and a drive strong enough that you constantly think "I can't quit now." Keep pushing towards what you want and stop at nothing. Have a good day guys, Kyler
Love It Or Hate It: Would You Ever Skydive?
Welcome to the Funny Community game, Love It Or Hate It! This game is really similar to Monday's 'No Good or So Good' food game - except this one deals a lot more with non-food things. Every week, I highlight a different thing that a lot of people either really love or really hate and see how our community feels overall! Last week, I asked you how you felt about EDM! Out of the 48 who gave your opinion, 25 of you said EDM is just 'meh'. Soooo... EDM has been voted to be NO GOOD!!!!! This week, I want to know: How do you feel about skydiving? Some of us can totally keep our chill when it comes to heights. Others - like Miley Cyrus, here - can definitely not. Which category do you, uh, 'fall' into? Is skydiving something you'd LOVE or absolutely HATE to do? @Inaritricx @Taijiotter @AimeeH @XergaB20 @JustinaNguyen @RainaC3 @bnrenchilada @destiny1419 @arnelli @Luci546 @Ash2424701 @GingerMJones @zwdodds @LenaBlackRose @misssukyi @TerraToyaSi @kneelb4zod @BrookeStam @RachelParker @JaxomB @ultraninja10 @reyestiny93 @MattK95 @MajahnNelson @petname83 @BluBear07 @melifluosmelodi @ZoilaObregon @GossamoKewen95 @TracyLynnn @TiffanyWallace @VixenViVi @DenieceSuit @ButterflyBlu @CelinaGonzalez @MaighdlinS @maddiemoozer @VeronicaArtino @iixel @TomHawthorne @DominiqueThomas @ElizabethT @RiggaFoster @AluSparklez @kvnguyen @chris98vamg @WiviDemol @animechild51 @2Distracted @cthulu @jazziejazz @JessicaChaney @shantalcamara @J1mbleJ4mz @Beeplzzz @carmaa10 @MayraYanez @Kamiamon @HeatherWright @MischiefK1ng @SeoInHan @ShonA @KennyMcCormick @MooshieBay @IMNII @Ikpoper @humairaa @merryjayne13 @zoemvillarreal @lilleonz @ChristinaOMalle @AllieGrabowski @baileykayleen @KarleyFrance @Ticasensei @EasternShell @musicundefined9 @peahyr @TerrecaRiley @MoisEsGaray @atmi @AlidaGarman @sanRico @orenshani7 @jannatd93 @ReadAnimateSwim @Astrohelix @dimplequeen @ChildofSparda13 @grapetoes2000 @sarahpjane @LittleHorn @justinasarmento @deilig @GalaxyTacoCat @amobigbang @LAVONYORK @Jason41 @kpopdeluxegirl @BlackDragon88 @Bobs @paularasnick @Animaniafreak @YumiMiyazaki @Patmanmeow @MarvelTrashcan @kawaiiporpoise @Xiuyeolhyun @MaggieHolm @xDaisyDaysx @yaakattackk @Starbell808 @KyleBerke @fatimajj23 @GabrielMarques @Alletaire @kkimberlyy @Priscillasdoor @chrisg3584 @brandontearss @bradleygialamas @justme29 @buddyesd @changoleon @Sara3 @felicityautumn @ssora @MorghanPorter @IzamarPalomo @realjoy @Heartofgold35 @mscocoasupreme @MyFunkySpell @ChakiahWallace @Krystalstar22 @KarlythePanda66 @JoeyNelson @TonyLepera @dianes6711 @Aripendragon @MichelleHolly @AviannaLin @seouls @AustinThurston @Sammyjuicoooo @divanicola05 @RavenQueen0810 @captpeter @Kourtland @Tsukasakrdcd @MistyTaylorByrd @MariPili @TylerCassalata @SarahRegulski @Melodicballoon @heyitskat @KellerBertrand @jiggzy19 @gogglesghost @BanalataBera @JayAi @mpandy @Gibbous1992 @Kody18 @ctsr1 @iamaweirdoo @Jasminep96 @CynthiaForeman @MzDawson31508 @MundaneGirl @DeniseNishikawa @lvplus2 @YourConscience @Bose @wrightally15 @jla23 @tiffany1922 @bettytolliver @Pocahontas41 @Dojjin @MelissaGarza @donmarques6 @VanessaAcosta @HollasiS @karlkahambwe @LexTrilly @HikariAkuhei @xander1981 @LinnyOk @colvitt @Isolate @Birdy915 @Nerdydemigod @na11 @CristalTrujillo @camilletoomer @selfishmachines
