Adidas micoach Elite System unveiled. The beginning of Datatainment ? | soccer |

As tomorrow night will be held the first Smart Soccer match which is to oppose the MLS All Star Team with Chelsea FC on Phily's Chester Stadium, Adidas unveiled its micoach Elite System.

The micoach Elite System includes a small data cell that fits into a player’s base layer in a protective pocket on the back between the shoulder blades. Connected by a series of electrodes and sensors woven into the fabric of the base layer, the cell wirelessly transmits more than 200 data records per second from each player to a central computer and then is displayed in a series of simplified insights and results on the coach’s iPad. At the touch of his fingertips, a coach can monitor the workload of an individual player, compare one athlete with another or view the whole team to gain a complete picture of the squad.
