Kinect comes to the aid of golfers - Kinect for Windows Product Blog - Site Home - MSDN Blogs | Sport innovation | Scoop.it

Designed for use by serious amateur golfers, My Swinguru detects flaws in the user’s golf swing and offers remedies. The golfer simply takes a swing in front of the Kinect sensor, which captures the entire motion in 3D. There are no wires or markers to interfere with the golfer’s swing—just one Kinect sensor that provides state-of-the-art, three-dimensional motion capture.

Wearable Devices Won't Succeed On The Mass Market Until More Apps Become Available

Wearable Devices Won't Succeed On The Mass Market Until More Apps Become Available | Sport innovation | Scoop.it

Despite all the new wearables on the market, there still aren't many apps in these devices' app stores. And without apps, there's not a great reason for mainstream consumers to adopt the devices. 

 

The wearable app ecosystem's immaturity is largely a result of platform fragmentation. The smartphone market is dominated by Android and iOS. Developers can choose to create apps for either one of these platforms knowing that they are reaching a wide swath of the smartphone market.

Not so for the wearables market. It isn't just that there's no dominant platform yet, the devices are also in the hands of far fewer users (compared to smartphone brands), creating an even greater disincentive to create apps for any one wearable device.

Build an Innovation Engine in 90 Days

Build an Innovation Engine in 90 Days | Sport innovation | Scoop.it

Practically every company innovates. But few do so in an orderly, reliable way. In far too many organizations, the big breakthroughs happen despite the company. Successful innovations typically follow invisible development paths and require acts of individual heroism or a heavy dose of serendipity. Successive efforts to jump-start innovation through, say, hack-a-thons, cash prizes for inventive concepts, and on-again, off-again task forces frequently prove fruitless. Great ideas remain captive in the heads of employees, innovation initiatives take way too long, and the ideas that are developed are not necessarily the best efforts or the best fit with strategic priorities.
Most executives will freely admit that their innovation engine doesn’t hum the way they would like it to. But turning sundry innovation efforts into a function that operates consistently and at scale feels like a monumental task. And in many cases it is, requiring new organizational structures, new hires, and substantial investment, as the “innovation factory” Procter & Gamble built in the early 2000s did.

Good advice at least on how to start it up, but the maintenance of the Innovation engine is another matter.  Worthwhile read.
