New Tech Possible Use in Mayweather Vs. McGregor Fight! Blending Physical with Tech!

Saturday, August 26th, 2017

Now who in the world of technology, sports, or entertainment has not heard of the huge Main Event on Saturday, August 26th, 2017. The main event which I am speaking of is McGregor Vs. Mayweather. This fight has been all over the news since the beginning of the name calling, extravagant photo scenes, press conferences, and live appearances by both boxers to show their personalities. From the young to the old which has a television, smartphone, tablet, computer, radio, or just general access to the internet has heard of this event for months in the making. McGregor coming from a Mixed Martial arts background winning multiple titles to Mayweather which is an undefeated boxing legend, both these box office smashers bring a plethora of experience from different arenas to this one history making event.  These two titans are engaged to a battle which will reveal one victor.

As sports fans and entertainment enthusiasts gather to watch the event either live or via multiple broadcasting platforms, technology experts are geared up to see the possibility of the introduction of a new technology to the Main Event arena. This new technology which we speak of is called “StrikeTec”. These are wearable sensors which the boxers would wear to keep track of their movements, force, number of punches thrown, and speed. This valuable data can give accurate information which the naked eye can sometimes miss and data that can be further used for training and even gaming software.

The StrikeTec wearable sensors progress and learn along with the user. The more the user wears the devices is the more accurate the data is evaluating the performances and giving meaningful insights and reports designed to increase performance.  Coaches can use the data to determine the force of a punch, the speed at which the punches are being thrown, and determine the exhaustion rate more accurately than ever. More than just using previous techniques that have been effective in the past, this data can prove that technology can blend naturally with physical improvement.

 

 

 

The sensors themselves are 7mm in height and 18mm in length. The sensors are attached to the user’s wristband and communicates via Bluetooth to the StrikeTec Boxing Training App. The user’s routines, and current stats are translated into real-time data which is used to determine how the coach will increase or decrease the boxer’s activities during a fight.

 

Between Mayweather and McGregor, it is possible to see this technology being utilized to analyze how the boxers are performing and how the coaches communicate with them. Even though unconfirmed that McGregor and Mayweather fight will be using this exact technology, the boxing and technology world is a buzz with the possibilities that technology and boxing are blending in this huge Main Event.

For the gamers amongst us, this data will surely be used in future games to be brought out by EA sports and other large gaming companies. Previously the data from fights and training of these boxers were either compiled through the naked eye in the past or through suits the boxers wear with multiple sensors to monitor movement. The data used in previous games was sometimes viewed as biased, however, with the current evolution of technology and its accuracy gamers are certain to get more accuracy with their games. This invaluable data which is currently being captured by StrikeTec is not only being transitioned from boxing, but into other sports such as Mixed Martial Arts, and Kickboxing. As the water resistant capabilities expand with this technology, swimming and other water sports are sure to follow in the line of sports that this technology will be used to monitor athletes! IT GURUS OF ATLANTA is always there at the edge of cutting edge technology and we will embrace the efforts of StrikeTec as they expand their growing reaching in the sporting arena.

Futuristic Transportation Already Testing – Hyperloop One is making Leaps of Speed!

Friday, August 4th, 2017

Nowadays the most common forms of transportation are cars, buses, trains, airplanes, and even boats. We tend to know the safety, reliability, and efficiency of using these vessels. They have been a part of society for many, many years. By using these vessels, we have learned to deal with traffic that causes delays in motor vehicle transportation, airplanes that get delayed for various unforeseen reasons, and boats that also run late due to inclement weather and other unforeseen circumstances. We have begun to understand and compromise in order to accommodate life’s unknowns that tend to come up.

What if there was another method of transportation that could transport passengers almost as fast as an airplane without hesitation due to the weather or delayed due to traffic? Would you be willing to try it out and make it a part of your daily transportation routine? Well, the people at Hyperloop One believe they have the answer and they have been testing their resolve with the testing of Hyperloop One.

 

Many people wonder what consists of a Hyperloop.  Well it’s an environmentally friendly and efficient new way of transportation.  Many depictions of a hyperloop were in James Bond “The Living Daylights” and “The Polar Express”. Now the dream of the Hyperloop has been brought to life by a company called by the same name “Hyperloop One”. Hyperloop One has begun testing their version of the Hyperloop in Nevada, just north of Las Vegas. Hyperloop One is now on it’s way to getting this new mode of transportation on the market as soon as they can complete their testing to show its ability to not only transport safely, but also faster than any other mode of transportation and equal to that of an airplane, but without the high altitudes.

Hyperloop One anticipates at the peak of the Hyperloop introduction into society, they are anticipating speeds at the speed of sound or 750 miles per hour. The two tests in the desert showed promising. The first test conducted showed the pod tapping out at 2Gs of acceleration and a top speed of 70 Mph. The second test, the company published a video showing the pod tapping out at 192 Mph to give an idea of the direction it is heading towards getting faster and faster in its journey towards the speed of sound.

The mechanics behind the Hyperloop is the Hyperloop One is composed of a 1 passenger pod, which is 28 feet that is composed of aluminum and fiber for its outer shell. The pod was able to reach the top speed of 192 miles per hour in a mere 5 seconds and covering 300 feet before slowing down. Hyperloop one is powered by an electric propulsion system. The pod is pulled along a low-pressure tube by magnetic accelerators which push the pod along the tubes. This system gives the pod its ability to move quickly and slow down equally the same. To deal with air pressure buildup in the front of the pod, the team of Hyperloop One has added air compressors at the front of the pod which moves the air to the rear, while helping to keep the pod aloft by using the air displacement. This new technology could turn a 6 hr trip into a 35 min ride in the Hyperloop.

 

This new mode of transportation is more efficient than conventional rails, water, air, and roads that the world has grown accustomed to using. More overly it is environmentally friendly with zero emissions, faster, and does not use any oil that we are so heavily dependent on currently.  On top of using electric power, the Hyperloop would also be equipped with solar panels which will distribute solar energy making it a low electric energy consumer.
