Novak Djokovic hace frente al reto de velocidad en la presentación de HEAD Graphene(TM) Speed

- Novak Djokovic hace frente al reto definitivo de velocidad en la presentación mundial de la nueva raqueta HEAD Graphene(TM) Speed

MELBOURNE, Australia, 11 de enero de 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Novak Djokovic, la principal estrella de la ATP, ha mostrado hoy los beneficios de su nueva raqueta de tenis HEAD Graphene(TM) Speed al golpear una pelota de tenis HEAD ATP, que ha conseguido i más rápido que un coche de competición Audi R8 LMS GT3, conducido por el piloto australiano de la categoría GT, Dean Grant, en la pista de carreras Sandown de Melbourne.

Con su carácter siempre jovial, Djokovic esperó de forma impaciente en la pista a que se agitara la bandera verde para comenzar con el reto de velocidad definitivo. Al tiempo que el Audi R8 aceleraba hacia Novak Djokovic, este de forma simultánea golpeaba la bola. La bola cruzó la línea de llegada unas décimas de segundo antes de que lo hiciera el coche de carreras, al tiempo que Novak aplaudía a su nueva raqueta, que consiguió que Djokovic volviera a quedar invicto.

Tras el reto, Novak habló en torno a sus preparaciones para el próximo Open de Australia y de la importancia de su nueva raqueta de tenis HEAD Graphene(TM) Speed para este juego. "Estoy impaciente de poder jugar con mi nueva raqueta en el Open de Australia. Da la sensación de ser más ligera, pero me proporciona la máxima velocidad y control en cada swing", explicó Djokovic. "Y también me encanta el nuevo diseño que tiene".

Graphene(TM) es un material único formado por una sola capa de átomos de carbono de dos dimensiones que cuenta con unas propiedades excepcionales. A pesar de ser de un bajo peso extremo, presenta una fortaleza frente a la rotura 200 veces superior a la del acero. La integración de Graphene(TM) en el eje de la raqueta ha permitido a los ingenieros de HEAD reducir el peso en la parte media de la raqueta de tenis, haciendo avanzar la funcionalidad hacia áreas más relevantes en el mango y en la parte superior. Como resultado, la raqueta es más sencilla para hacer un swing, y el esfuerzo es menor, además de generar más potencia.

La nueva película viral de HEAD que cuenta con Djokovic probando esta nueva arma elegida en una sesión de pruebas de una forma poco usual también se ha estrenado hoy. Se puede ver la película en www.youtube.com/headtennis.

La nueva raqueta Speed de Novak estará disponible en las tiendas de todo el mundo desde hoy, y los jugadores de HEAD Maria Sharapova, Tomas Berdych y Marin Cilic también presentarán sus nuevas raquetas Graphene(TM) Instinct MP en el Open de Australia.

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smart...

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
