  It still is imperative that the data is properly analyzed. I am thinking about the current hubbub surrounding head injuries i the NFL. All the impact data in the world will not help design safer equipment if the size and strength of the players involved continues to evolve as it has during the last 20-30 years. Helmets and pad that protected when the average size of linemen was 260 pounds are not as effective today with 300 pound plus players. Add the increased speed and artificial playing surfaces and there are a whole different set of circumstances. Data that was cutting edge is now obsolete.

I agree, with the help of the new and latest technologies, people are able to know about these sensors and also able to face any challenges.

Thanks for this look at how capacitive tactile sensing technology can be applied to sporting materials and goods. It's a fascinating technology and has the potential for a range of applications. I am particularly interested in some of the work being done in robotics with this technology.
