How Olympic Athletes Visualize Their Performances With Biometric Sensors
GE strapped LED biosensors to gymnasts, runners, cyclists and more to capture their precise movements
General Electric selected participating athletes in the Olympic Games to illustrate their performance using LED light technology. The athletes were given specially designed sensors that were able to track their movements and biometrics and convert the real-time data into light paintings.
These wireless biosensors are easily strapped onto the person and can measure key metrics such as acceleration, heart rate, and muscle activity. The sensors are also attached with LEDs that present real-time data in colorful light trails.
