Taking it Past the Limit

Beer, Tennis, Football and Input Recognition with MEMS-Enhanced Devices

What do head injuries, beer, and smart tennis rackets have in common? The MEMS Executive Congress, that’s what! (Thought I was going somewhere else with that, didn’t ya?) Keeping with our Friday Fun theme, this week’s Fish Fry digs into how MEMS-enhanced designs can measure the amount of beer left in your keg, alert your coach about a potential head injury, and improve your tennis game. We chat about several cool designs submitted to this year’s MEMS Executive Congress Technology Showcase by companies Nod Labs, Babolat, and Kegdata. Also this week, we look at the way Force Impact Technologies wants to change how we address head injuries on the ball field.
