  • Following on from our toothbrush for the nose, comes the silicon ear cleaner. Interestingly a similar design, EEEARS Stria + keeps you alert and ready for your opponent. You might ask why in a sports technology newsletter? Well, our senses are key to great performance and few are optimising those through sports design.
  • Finally, female focussed wearables that use female data to calibrate initial test algorithms. For those in sports research into wearables, you know this has been too long in coming. Check out Femtek.
  • Collagen seems to be the buzz word in supplements at the moment. Companies like Elainewellness are supplying pasture-raised bovine collagen from Spain
  • Kineon Design Labs introduces its latest non-invasive device dubbed the MOVE+ and it is made by fusing LED and Laser light technology to specifically help with healing muscles and joint pain
  • Worries about germs being on your gym equipment? Don't worry, UVCeed have designed a mobile app that will disinfectant your equipment using UVC. Must admit, we don't really understand but it looks cool if it works

Sports Science

"Furthermore, our study revealed that for most athletes (72%), food temperature is important or very important for food choices."

Interested in giving athletes the best nutrition at events? Well this is the study for you.

Surprisingly only 49% of athletes new what nutritional labels were? Huh?!


Technology (AR, VR, AI, esports, etc.)

  • Optimise your lighting for esports with Yeslamp Ace: RGB eSports Dynamic 4-in-1 LED Lamp
  • Back to using AI and Midjourney to create cool sports products again. Check out the power of AI design with these Marvel x Nike Soccer Cleats

AI Sports Equipment Design of the Day

We are loving AI at the moment and think it will change how we design sports equipment forever, so here is our new design of the day.

Obviously we were going to showcase the Marvel Soccer Cleats but since the author of the original story didn't pick a female character, we thought we would try Black Widow. Still a lot of work on our side to get the prompts right, but still it looks cool.

Black Widow Soccer Cleats created using PlaygroundAI

Hopefully it will provide some inspiration!

Over and out!
