For calling strikes and balls in baseball it would be most entertaining to let the umpire call the play first, and then report what the computer saw. Then the instant replays could be presented to solve the argument. The current problem is that the umps have 25 foot tall egos, which sort of outweighs everybody else. 

But I don't watch baseball on television because of all of the commercials. The same for football. Seeing any gave live is fine, but with the delays for commercials it is not so much fun any more. High school games run much faster and they are a much better entertainment value.

With all this tech, it surely makes sense to call ALL balls and strikes via sensing camera. Bad calls in baseball burn me to no end because they are not necessary.

Prior to HD TV, the technology to track hockey pucks was a huge step forward, largely because many people couldn't see the puck in hockey's TV broadcasts.

Nice slide show, Brian. I particularly liked the BodyMedia and the horse racing camera. I know the horse racing media is older technology, but when you have a horse that's close in the photo, the technology seems amazing. One thing I didn't see was the Kissing Cam. But maybe that's covered by the Sky Cam.

If you see a hitchhiker along the road in Canada this summer, it may not be human. That’s because a robot is thumbing its way across our neighbor to the north as part of a collaborative research project by several Canadian universities.
Stanford University researchers have found a way to realize what’s been called the “Holy Grail” of battery-design research -- designing a pure lithium anode for lithium-based batteries. The design has great potential to provide unprecedented efficiency and performance in lithium-based batteries that could substantially drive down the cost of electric vehicles and solve the charging problems associated with smartphones.
Help us recognize engineers who are ahead of the trends and making big moves in the design engineering community.
