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.

Consumer IoT applications provide data about the user that just doesn’t exist in traditional PC or mobile web applications. This rich data, or “context,” enables the highly personalized consumer experiences that characterize many consumer IoT apps. This same data is also providing brands with unprecedented insight into how their connected products are being used, while, at the same time, powering highly targeted engagement and marketing opportunities. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Nathan Treloar, President and COO of Bebaio, will explore examples of brands transforming their businesses by t...
Through WebRTC, audio and video communications are being embedded more easily than ever into applications, helping carriers, enterprises and independent software vendors deliver greater functionality to their end users. With today’s business world increasingly focused on outcomes, users’ growing calls for ease of use, and businesses craving smarter, tighter integration, what’s the next step in delivering a richer, more immersive experience? That richer, more fully integrated experience comes about through a Communications Platform as a Service which allows for messaging, screen sharing, video...
The 3rd International WebRTC Summit, to be held Nov. 4–6, 2014, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA, announces that its Call for Papers is now open.

WebRTC Summit is co-located with 15th International Cloud Expo, 6th International Big Data Expo, 3rd International DevOps Summit and 2nd Internet of @ThingsExpo. WebRTC (Web-based Real-Time Communication) is an open source project supported by Google, Mozilla and Opera that aims to enable bro...
Contrary to mainstream media attention, the multiple possibilities of how consumer IoT will transform our everyday lives aren’t the only angle of this headline-gaining trend. There’s a huge opportunity for “industrial IoT” and “Smart Cities” to impact the world in the same capacity – especially during critical situations. For example, a community water dam that needs to release water can leverage embedded critical communications logic to alert the appropriate individuals, on the right device, as soon as they are needed to take action.
Manufacturing connected IoT versions of traditional products requires more than multiple deep technology skills. It also requires a shift in mindset, to realize that connected, sensor-enabled “things” act more like services than what we usually think of as products. In his session at @ThingsExpo, David Friedman, CEO and co-founder of Ayla Networks, will discuss how when sensors start generating detailed real-world data about products and how they’re being used, smart manufacturers can use the data to create additional revenue streams, such as improved warranties or premium features. Or slash...

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

The Internet of Things is in the early stages of mainstream deployment but it promises to unlock value and rapidly transform how organizations manage, operationalize, and monetize their assets. IoT is a complex structure of hardware, sensors, applications, analytics and devices that need to be able to communicate geographically and across all functions. Once the data is collected from numerous endpoints, the challenge then becomes converting it into actionable insight.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
With the proliferation of connected devices underpinning new Internet of Things systems, Brandon Schulz, Director of Luxoft IoT – Retail, will be looking at the transformation of the retail customer experience in brick and mortar stores in his session at @ThingsExpo.
