Instructables hits the road with the Future of Sports Tour Answered

Picture of

PopSci is doing a roadshow called The Future of Sports Tour. You can learn about how science and technology are affecting the way we play and train. Golf, tennis, hockey, baseball and other sports keep evolving with the times and this is a way to see that in person. If you're in the SF bay area, New York, or Miami you can go and check it out.

PopSci has also been nice enough to give us a bit of floorspace to show off three DIY games: Ladder Golf, Kubb, and Pringles Golf. You can see the games in person and see some footage of us playing them as well.

If you're near any of these it should be worth the trip. And if not you can always make a set of your own and play at home!

Dates:
San Francisco (Great Mall)
- July 18+19
New York (Smith Haven Mall)
- July 26+27
Miami (Miami International)
- August 2+3

During the time it is anywhere near me, I will still be off work and unable to travel. *sigh* and I missed the Last Hope Convention too :'-(

You're going on a tour about the future of sport? And taking a game played when looting and pillaging was seen as a valid career plan?

Kiteman has a small chuckle at the irony...

Wish I could check it out but I live on the west coast. Makes sense though they just did a large article on the future of sports in their July magazine.
