Now if we add a lite, powered, programmed exoskeleton to the person, they can be guided/prompted through the proper movements to enhance performance and to avoid injury. Like an instructor teaches how to fly a plane via dual controls.

As a self-avowed data junkie, I think this is really cool technology.  I remember working 25 years ago on some Virtual Reality projects where we were trying to map the body in 3D space.  Some of it eventually translated into telepresence programs and gaming, but nothing like the miniature sensors can do now.  Just wait until energy harvesting gets integrated into these sensors and then they can go just about anywhere.

A few years ago, there was actually a television show called "Sport Science," which was all about measuring athletic performance with sensors. It was actually a good show for engineers.

Even if surfing has the reputation for being laid back, when it comes to competition, participants will do anything to improve performance. Just look at how performance-enhancing drugs proliferated. If MEMS improves performance, they will get the attention they deserve.

It's no wonder it was a big highlight f the show.  Action Sports has been a catalyst for new trends for several years now.  Technology in fashion is one example.  The industry has also been a great agitator.  The growth of Go-Pro accelerated crowd-sharing in a fun way.

And, it's great too see technology supporting the health of athletes.  This can be used to keep track of, not only winning techniques, but also any degenerative effects on the body.
