This blog about the story of First Down Laser Systems and it’s inventor is the perfect community subject matter because involves a sports technology product, the business processes it takes to make it all so, and a vision and persistence that, Alan Amron, certainly has. First Down Laser has been around for a decade. Amron invented the Press on Memo back in 1973, otherwise known as the famous Post-it note. It was a real pleasure to speak with Alan and find out more about his sports tech creation that may be coming to an NFL field and your television shortly.
