The designers of the Omega SprintMaster point out that the starting block has not been given sufficient attention as technology has improved. The equipment for many different sports has been reimagined with the assistance of computer modeling, material science and engineering, but essential apparatuses such as this one have been left in the dust.

Jom Sirimongkolkasem from the California College of the Arts strove to streamline the track and field contraption, both formally and functionally. The components are made smooth and slim without compromising stability and sturdiness, and the spikes grips offer sufficient traction. Optimally, the Omega SprintMaster starting block affords greater freedom in adjustability for individual runners, and it clearly displays the numerical settings for user-friendly feedback.
