Levi’s Stadium Deploys Qylatron Entry Experience Solution By Qylur

Qylur Intelligent Systems has the checkpoint of the future installed and deployed at Levi’s® Stadium one month ago with hopes the NFL approves further deployment for Super Bowl 50 just three months away. Will this security-as-a-service technology prevent the kind of suicide bomber that was blocked from entry into Stade De France national stadium during the recent Paris Attacks by ISIS terrorists? The answer is not crystal clear however last month, the company announced the signing of a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement with the U.S...

High Tech Tennis For The Sports Techie Community Blog

Sports Techie was asked by iQ by Intel to take a look at the way tech is changing how tennis is played via connected racquets, smart courts and technology being used at this year’s 2014 grand slams, however, since I am no longer a contributor and was sent this story I researched back, I will publish it on my own for our community readers and followers benefit. It was my pleasure to investigate and learn how technologies by Babolat, smartcourts by PlaySight, and the grand slams such as Wimbledon and the U.S. Open, are together pushing tennis forward creating a worldwide renaissance for the sport America used to dominate but not anymore.

Sports Helmets: The Science Behind The Safety

Football is a dangerous sport, and participation rates among young players indicate concerned parents are taking notice. Pop Warner, the largest youth football program in the U.S., lost 23,612 players from 2010 to 2012, the largest decline in the organization’s history, according to ESPN Outside The Lines.

We sports fans live in a wonderful era in that technology has been tailored to enhance the fan experience using mobile devices and apps to deliver targeted content.
