180519 Hacking the future…and our brains!

On the 15th and 16th of May, our team has taken part in an edgy conference about sports and technology in Lausanne. It has been very interesting and exciting days, so here follows a few articles of the most interesting topics that have been discussed during the event! Here is the first topic I would like to introduce to you.

In the scientific world, all the parameters that influence the performance have to be objective and therefore it is important to be able to measure them. The current state of art from a technological point of view allows us to get information even about emotions, using techniques that study the brain! These powerful means can be used to monitor states of fear or anger in athletes and implantable wearable devices will play an important role in this in the future!
