US Women's Soccer Using Heart Rate Monitors #WearableWednesday  
http://adafru.it/fyK

I’m not the biggest sports fan out there, but I have to say that I was in front of my screen during the final game with our women’s team scoring fast and frequently. Not only was their control of the ball amazing, but I noticed one of the players pull up her shirt to dab some sweat, revealing a heart rate monitor. Since I’ve met someone that actually makes this type of equipment, I was curious to learn more, and it just so happens that it was discussed on ESPN.Go.

“What evolved [with the technology] was the ability for coaches to not only record the data, but be able to see it live,” says Josh Simonsen, a training specialist for Polar, the company that supplies the U.S. team with its heart rate system.

As you might imagine, the heart rate information of the entire team is sent to the coach for analysis, which is a powerful tool. You can start to address the various fitness levels of the players. But wait, there’s more…

What type of position an athlete plays also makes a difference, explains Sally Edwards, a heart rate expert and founder and CEO of Heartzones, a fitness technology company. “In team sports, each player’s position has unique physiological requirements, so the forward on a soccer team has to have different training than a defender,” says Edwards. “Some positions might need quick acceleration. Others might need endurance late in the game.”

Question shiny maker people!

I'm looking for a prod sensor that detects very close proximity. Like an inch or less. I want to use this with an Intel Edison and an arduino breakout board. Any recommendations?

Cap touch and proximity uses capacity, Hall effect uses magnetic field, and a plastic ball won't affect the capacity or field around your sensor.  Light could be a problem if ambient light is going to affect it.  If you control the LED, you can sample the difference between when it's on and off to detect the ball.  A snap-action would work if the ball is heavy enough to throw it while sliding against the opposite side.  They are very easy to press.  It's just a matter of getting it positioned perfectly.

I shattered the screen on my LG G2 and did a lot of research on how to fix it. When I priced out the screen and tools without even taking the learning curve into account, it was more expensive than they charged me to not only replace the screen, but the backing as well. They gave me a whole new looking phone back for less than the parts I could get my own hands on, and they did it in 45 minutes! They tested the phone thoroughly with me before I left and really did a solid job. It looks like a new device and works perfectly! They were friendly, fast, flexible, and really well priced. It was a screamin' deal and a really good experience. I could even watch them repair it right on the table! Highly satisfied!
