SmartMat: The World’s First Intelligent Yoga Mat

By Ben on Thu Oct 2 2014 |
SmartMat The World  s First Intelligent Yoga
Gear | Sport


A new intelligent yoga mat which has been created and launched over on the Indiegogo crowd funding website this month called the SmartMat. The SmartMat has been equipped with a wealth of sensors that connect to the companion smartphone application to provide you with instruction on your positions whilst monitoring the pressure and balance of your body on the mat.
When you first unpack and activate your SmartMat, it will take you through a “calibration” process. First and foremost, this involves you inputting some basic information such as gender, height, and weight. On a deeper level, the calibration process will then ask you to lay down on SmartMat and it will take measurements to determine arm span and various ratios between your limbs. SmartMat is able to recognize the difference based on individual body types.
After the initial measurements are completed, SmartMat then takes you through a series of “baseline” poses. This is to determine what your individual abilities and limitations are. For example, in Downward Dog some can place their heels on the ground. For others, this option is just not available. SmartMat will learn these things about you and your practice in the baseline calibration setting so that it can give you intelligent and practical feedback during the heat of your sessions

The Wondrous Water Towers of New York City by  Pop Chart Lab. Big pic!
"This visual compendium arrays a curated selection of the city skyline’s unsung signatures: its wondrous water towers. From the rainbow-tiled tower in DUMBO to the twin-tank setup in Midtown East to the lime-tinged filtration-point in Richmond Hill, Queens, over two dozen industrial artifacts have been richly hand-illustrated here, highlighting the heterogeneity of these high-rising hydro-structures. (Fun fact: Though many of these towers may look like antiques, this time-tested technology has yet to be topped, and still provides precious H20 to most buildings in the city six stories or taller.)"
