Sports fans, sports teams, and Tablet PC folk will be interested in this. AgileSports has teamed up with Toshiba, using Toshiba’s M400 and R400 Tablet PCs. Three students developed a system called Huddle to help their university team (Nebraska) get the edge on the field. Their plan is based on the fact that most teams are on an equal footing when it comes to physical conditioning and training, and that mental training and preparation are the next frontier where teams can develop an edge.
The Huddle system uses Tablet PCs to:
- Draw on top of video using digital ink
- Diagram plays
- Communicate effectively
- Track performance goals
Now, here’s a thought. If we started seeing athletes and coaches using Tablet PCs on the sidelines and in the ubiquitous sports programming features that show them reviewing video, I’d bet that would help bump up the exposure a bit.
