Hi-tech sports clothing
University of Sydney honours student, Mitchell Page, has used cutting-edge wearable technology to make basketball uniforms – for example, updating and displaying in real-time a player’s fouls, score, and even the amount of time left in a game.
Mr Page, a bachelor of design computing undergraduate, came up with the idea while playing computer sports games, which use graphics and icons to tie statistics to the virtual players and track their performance. He wondered how such on-screen graphics in sports telecasts could be made available to players and spectators at the ground.
