State Farm Arena Transformation With Sports Tech Enhanced Features

State Farm Arena Transform With Sports Tech Enhanced Features

State Farm Arena opens tonight when the Atlanta Hawks play the Dallas Mavericks after a $200 million arena refurbish of which $142.5 million came from Georgia public funding, something I am fully against because billionaire owners don’t need the money, right. This is touted as the second-biggest facility redesign in NBA history after MGS in New York.

Unfortunately, with the new sponsor and all the technology-driven bells and whistles like the fan...

After the Hoverboard Scandal – Which Brands Can You Trust?

Remember just a couple Christmases ago when hoverboards were the gift to give? You may also recall the great debacle surrounding the products shortly after – a few of these self-balancing scooters had electrical shortages and caught fire, making national headlines and worrying parents who had bought them for their kids. The Sports Techie community blog believes in safety first when it comes to sports tech.

Just as quickly as they gained popularity, they were labeled hazardous. These dangerous early hoverboards all had one thing in common though – the batteries were all traced back to a single factory in China and sold for cheap...

Sports Betting Across America

This is the year American sports betting became legal outside of the stranglehold Las Vegas had for decades.

This is the year American sports betting became legal outside of the stranglehold Las Vegas had for decades. In May, 2018 the Supreme Court ruled the Federal law in place banning this type of action unconstitutional allowing each state the right to make the decision whether to offer legalized sport bets.

The Sports Techie community blog has long-term vision to develop cutting edge sports tech products to take advantage of this ruling in the near future...
