From High-Tech Gym Equipment to Electric Hydrofoil Surfboards

 - Feb 19, 2019
The list of February 2019 sports trends features a broad scope of ideas that challenge athletic movement and technological efficiency. The range of this month's sports trends experiments with blending athletics and technology, making it a more functional experience overall.

An example of this is the set of workout machines created by HOLODIA -- it features bikes, rowing machines, elliptical machines, and more. All of which are created to have compatibility with virtual reality experiences. It stemmed from the connectivity between television screens attached to cardio machines. HOLODIA's rowing machine sync with rowing through icy waters, for example, to make the experience more immersive.

Another concept this month is the Waydoo Flyer, which is an electric hydrofoil surfboard -- another fusion of athletic gear and technology. It smoothly glides over water without having to wait for oncoming waves to make the experience enjoyable.
