Embedded Sensors Might Really Show When a Hit is a HIT!
Was thinking the other day about technology and hockey and I began thinking about body checks and the impacts players experience.
Apparently I’m not the only one thinking about stuff like this.
While I hated the colored puck that was used on national tv to try and highlight the movement and speed of the puck, sensors embedded in players’ equipment or on the boards could yield really cool (and scientifically pertinent) images of the forces players experience during a game. Perhaps it could even be used only on replays?
What do you think about it?
