Limpert Tech on ALT 105.7 and iHeartRadio 2/2/19 - Rick's Big Game Tech

It's the Rams and the Patriots!
The Super Bowl is in Atlanta at Mercedes-Benz Stadium, but it's such a big event, it takes over the whole downtown area.
A big event likes this means new gadgets, new tech and tech news!
What's going on with Tech at the Super Bowl?
Rick and Sully discuss:
1.   NFL's 1st and Future Competition
The National Football League (NFL) has teamed up with Arrow Electronics and Georgia Institute of Technology for the 4th annual 1st and Future competition. The event is the NFL’s annual Super Bowl competition designed to spur innovation in player health, safety and performance. Two competitive categories were featured for this year’s event with the “NFL Punt Analytics Competition” and “Innovations to Advance Athlete Health and Safety Competition”. 
It's a Shark Tank like competition.

3. Hyundai Shopper Assurance
Hyundai Shopper Assurance has transformed the car buying process, providing customers with a frictionless, efficient and transparent experience. Roughly one year after the program was rolled out to Hyundai dealers nationwide, and after receiving positive feedback from customers and dealers, Hyundai is starting national advertising for the program.
Hyundai's 60-second first-quarter Super Bowl ad will star Jason Bateman and show how much better car buying can be with Shopper Assurance. Jason Bateman, the award-winning actor, director and producer, will bring his comedic savvy to the ad in a way only he can.
Shopper Assurance consists of four elements that make the process of purchasing a car easier, faster and worry-free. Since the start of its national availability in February 2018, 632 of Hyundai's dealers now offer the voluntary program, representing more than 77 percent of Hyundai's sales volume. Customers who have purchased a Hyundai vehicle through the program have responded very favorably.:
4. HyperX Brings Videogaming to the Super Bowl
The HyperX truck is onsite
HyperX, the gaming division of Kingston Technology Company, Inc. and brand leader in gaming and esports, today announced that the HyperX Esports Truck – North America’s first mobile competitive gaming arena – will host four days of free football gaming competition at the Super Tailgate Party located just one block from Mercedes-Benz Stadium. The HyperX Esports Truck is owned and operated by Allied Esports, a global esports entertainment company. Proceeds from the sale of food and beverages will support the NFL Retired Players Association.
Bigger than four full-sized food trucks, the two-level HyperX Esports Truck will bring a unique esports experience to Atlanta. The state-of-the-art, 18-wheel, 35-ton semi-trailer unfolds with a push of a button revealing a self-contained mobile esports arena.
Fans are invited to join the free gaming experience to compete against other football fans and local gamers on HyperX’s pro gaming stage. Attendees will have the chance to test their gaming skills using the latest HyperX gaming gear as they battle fellow gamers for the chance to win HyperX award-winning gaming gear including gaming headsets, keyboards, mice, and mousepads. Raffles are planned during competition hours. All attendees are encouraged to share photos using #HyperXTailgate online for a chance to win HyperX gaming accessories and prizes.
5. Breaking Data Usage Records in Atlanta
The newest, most state-of-the-art NFL stadium is ready to host the matchup on Super Bowl Sunday, and the expectation is that fans will once again break data usage records.
Every year the data usage numbers go up, and the same is expected at Super Bowl 53. Last year's Super Bowl 52 game between the Patriots and the Philadelphia Eagles was the fifth year in a row that data usage broke records. Fans consumed 16.31 terabytes of data over Wi-Fi that year, and cell usage increased, too. There were 18.8 TB of data going over the Verizon network inside the stadium on game day last year, and AT&T reported 7.2 TB of data going over its network inside the stadium. Sprint combined numbers from both inside and immediately around the stadium, for a total of 9.7 TB on its networks during Super Bowl 52.
6. Comcast/Xfinity Offering Free Wi-Fi at Spots Downtown
Comcast is offering free public Wi-Fi during the week of January 27 at eight MARTA transit stations, parts of the downtown Atlanta entertainment district - which includes Centennial Olympic Park - and at State Farm Arena, SunTrust Park and The Battery Atlanta.
