Final project

 1.) Swimming b. Basketball c. Football 2.) Basketball It has impacted american culture through movies, television, and more. Technology could advance the camera angles to make better calls and to make it easier for the refs. A problem is that the refs sometimes make really bad calls so technology could make a faster way to review the play so they could make a better call. Swimming It has impacted american culture because of the athletes like michael phelps who dominated in the olympics, that makes it more popular. Technology could help swimming with maybe more precise timing in finishing time. A problem in swimming could be the swim caps are uncomfortable and the goggles so technology could make them more comfortable. Football It has impacted american culture by becoming more nationwide mostly through the nfl by making the nfl seem really fun and doing charitable things and nfl players doing community activities. Technology could help protect their head with new helmet protection so it makes the game safer for the players. A problem in football is all the concussion injuries so making new technology that protects the head better would be good. 3.) Basketball 4.) The referees make terrible calls at times so i would want to make a faster way to review the play and change the call if it was a probable call. 5.) The refs could have an ipad on their belt that they could take off and look at really fast to either change the call or not. I will need an ipad, an ipad holder that fits on the refs belt so it won't fall off, and an app that connects to the cameras that can be easy to review the play and make the right call. When the refs run it might be difficult to run with because it could hit their leg or be uncomfortable I'm inventing an app that connects to the nba cameras, which then goes to the ipad on the ref so they can look at the play again and see if they need to change the call or not. Im also improving the accuracy of the calls refs make in a game. The purpose is to make the game completely fair and so there are no missed/bad/incorrect calls made. When the nba cameras are recording the game it also connects to the app on the ipad for reviewing the play so when it does that the refs can just take the ipad off the belt and look at the call together and make a final decision. The app needs wifi to connect to the ipad so it can load the play. First the play is recorded on the NBA cameras then it is transferred to the ipad and the refs can review the play on the ipad, this all happens with wifi. The beneficial effects are making the right calls so there is no controversy, arguing, technicals or ejections for arguing. Also so the game is fair on both sides of the court. I don't think there are any harmful effects of this invention because there are only positives. It could relate to society in a way that they could be happy because the refs are now making good calls so the fans and influences around the league are now happy. Maybe at first the refs wouldn't know how to use it but overall it's pretty simple and shouldn't be too difficult. It could generate problems., for example, maybe the cameras were not connecting to the ipad or the ipad could be lagging. I'm going to name it the NBA Ipad play reviewer. Considering its an ipad It should be at least 1,400, because of the ipad belt holder and the app.
