NFL players will be tracked in real-time using RFID tags

Following in the footsteps of the NBA, which introduced player tracking technology in every one of its arenas for the 2013-14 season, the NFL has announced its own player tracking system.

Can a professional-grade player health tracking app help NFL teams to cut down on head tra...

In the NFL, head trauma and other injuries are no joke. How does a team's medical staff know which call to make after a nasty blow? Can technology help them to know whether it's best to leave a player in the game or send him to the showers? Microsoft believes that a new enterprise app for Surface could play a role in helping teams to answer those tough questions. As part of a broader Surface on the Sidelines initiative, the X2 app is one of the best examples we've seen of how a professional-focused PC like the Surface Pro could potentially be used to actually change the way people work.  Read More

Having recently finished watching the final episode of that great football drama series Friday Night Lights I have a new found love for all things NFL. Over the years I have enjoyed the Madden games very much, but this year I'm even more attuned to the game because of the exploits of the Dillon Panthers and the Lions. So it was with great enthusiasm that I fired Madden 13 up and prepared to do battle. The game was released at the end of August for PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita, Nintedo Wii (with a Wii U version in the offing) and Xbox 360. Our review is of the 360 version of the game.  Read More

The US Army is now working with the US National Football League (NFL) to develop ways to protect their respective members at risk of repeated incidents of mild traumatic brain injury (MTBI), traditionally called concussions. The first step of the program is to install sensors in the protective helmets so that the conditions leading to MTBI can be understood. Once understood, new helmet designs will provide more protection against such injuries.  Read More

Trees make a huge contribution to the green infrastructure of our towns and cities, both in carbon sequestration and aesthetics, yet the economical value of them is often forgotten leading them to be undervalued or seen as a nuisance. The i-Tree tool aims to change the way people see trees – it is a freely available software suite from the US Forest Service which provides analysis, benefit-calculations and assessment tools to quantify the contribution made by trees in the urban environment to allow communities to understand the economic benefit of protecting our urban forests.  Read More
