the MEMS in Sports panel at Sensors in Design was one of the most funnest (yes I wrote that) panels I've moderated; you should check out our pictures from the panel - including me standing next to the surfboard: http://www.flickr.com/photos/50603106@N08/

thank you @docdivakar, you might be right higher volumes will mean lower prices and these devices will become more affordable for the masses...whether the masses will go for it that is another story, my wife bought me a high tech hear monitor which is complicated that only used it once or twice ;-)...my gym training has not improved!

Kris, sports getting expensive... that has been going on for years now. What you will see more are the devices doing multiple sensing functions at a low cost that will increase the affordability of these gadgets from all geographies, developed/developing. What you will also see with the proliferation of sensors is the popularity of new academic disciplines like Kinesiology that draw from engineering, science, math and biology. So get ready to offer new PhD programs! MP Divakar

It is amazing how fast MEMS has gone mainstream. For sportsmen and women, we will be seeing more amazing stats. Now, tech drives the talents

I guess future athletes will require tons of wearable electronics to monitor their performance...professional sport will get even more expensive...Kris
