Once upon a time, objects were…just objects. But now, objects can be smart and connected, from refrigerators that tell you when to buy milk to homes that greet you with ambient music. The world of sports, always at the forefront of technological breakthroughs, is part of the trend. For example, the French company Connected Cycle has created a smart bike pedal that lets you calculate your trips and your performance, and locate your bike if it has been stolen.
The soccer world may also experience a revolution: robotic players, cameras integrated into the equipment, and the possibility of watching a match via holograms are a few of the innovations that technology observers envisage in the coming years. The goal of these innovations is to encourage the spectators’ immersion and to collect more and more data on the players’ performance.
