Problem and Solution

If you get lost in the fog, like these two runners, you can find your way home again with the Sygna T-shirt.

The Sygna T-shirt has all the capacities of a traditional wearable fitness tracker: it can measure steps taken, floors climbed and calories burnt, but it can also tell you which road to follow to get home. To enable the smart features, users first have to download a companion app and set the desired destination. The vibrations from a built-in vibration sensor located on each shoulder lets the runner know which turn to take.

Also useful for finding the nearest donut shop after your 8th mile or so.

At Least It Wasn’t a Hulk Attack

Aengus Meldon appeared headed for victory out of the final turn of the 800 meters at the Irish Universities Athletics Association championship. Unfortunately a nearby pole vaulter at that exact moment pulled down an elastic crossbar used for training. Here’s the video of what happened next.

The announcer labeled it a “Spiderman attack,” solidifying the indisputable truth that we should always watch Irish Universities Athletics Association events and enshrine their announcers in the Broadcasting Hall of Fame.

The Virtual Reality Game That Turns You Into Frogger

It’s called Jogger, of course, and is identical to the old Konami arcade game. Here’s video of how it works, but I don’t know if the cartoony music is part of the experience.

A little too similar to my morning run for my taste.
