Limpert Tech "SullyCast" on ALT 105.7 - Winter Olympics Tech

The Olympic Games every 2 years are breeding ground for new technology, that will soon find the way into our lives.  


 
What's hot when it comes to technology in Pyeonchang?
Rick and Sully discuss...

1.  Streaming the Games

It's now easier than ever to stream the Games

2. 5G Wireless Speeds


The games will be broadcast on the world's first fifth-generation (5G) network, whose transmission speeds are expected to be 1,000 times faster than existing long-term evolution (LTE) networks.
"The 5G network is expected to revolutionize the broadcasting industry as it is capable of delivering massive data needed for VR or hologram services," local Korean website Yonhap News wrote in January.
 


3. TheraBand CLX Consecutive Loops

www.therabandclx.com

$24.99
- Used by Lindsay Vonn in her training

With the help of her trusty TheraBand CLX Consecutive Loops, Vonn has not only strengthened and toned her full body, but also recovered from serious injuries such as a broken arm and two knee ligament tears.
“I felt like that’s one thing that I’ve made my mission in my career is working absolutely as hard as possible so that there’s never a question in my mind whether I could have worked harder,” say Vonn, who uses the CLX Bands heavily during training and rehab.

All-in-One product does the work of bands, loops, tubing with handles, and door anchors. Available in 5 ft. pre-cut lengths and 25 yd. Bulk Rolls.


4.  How NASA Tech Helps Predict Snowfall for the 2018 Winter Olympics


To provide the gold-medal hopefuls with forecasts every 6 hours and improve snow-prediction models for mountainous terrains, NASA has partnered with 20 agencies from about a dozen countries to collect weather data during the 2018 Winter Games in Pyeongchang, South Korea, according to a recent statement from the space agency.
The World Wildlife Fund estimates that one out of every eight people lives in the world's mountains, and according to NASA, one in six relies on the water released by seasonal snowfall collecting in the mountains. Winter wonderlands are vital, but for many people during these next few weeks, fresh powder will feel even more important. Most nations have their eyes on the dramatic snow-capped mountains around Pyeongchang to watch their most-talented skiers and snowboarders go for gold.



5. The Robot Ski Challenge

The Olympians weren't the only ones sking down the slopes in Pyeonchang.

For everyone worried now that robots have learned how to open doors and perform somersaults, take heart: if you’re good at skiing, they probably won’t catch you on mountain slopes.

Just a short drive away from PyeongChang, the site for the 2018 Winter Olympics, the Welli Hilli ski resort held the Edge of Robot: Ski Robot Challenge, where Korean students and tech organizations competed for a $10,000 prize to see whose robot could navigate a simple alpine skiing challenge the fastest.

Limpert Tech "SullyCast" on ALT 105.7 - Valentine's Day Tech

Valentines Day is less than a week away, but Rick and Sully will talk some tech and or gadgets perfect for Valentine's Day this year. Rick goes out of the box with some of these, but all cool and fun!

Have a listen!


1. Boredwalk T-Shirts
www.boredwalktshirts.com

How about a fun t-shirt for your significant other? Boredwalk is an artist owned and operated t-shirt company that offers a fun array of t-shirts for men, women, and children.
Everything is designed and printed in our LA studio with eco-friendly water-based inks. Boredwalk is ready with fun and quirky tees ranging in various colors and sporting fun sayings like “Feminism is my second favorite F-word” that are sure to complete any Galentine’s Day.

They are also donating a portion of our sales now through February 28th to She Should Run, an organization that helps women run for public office. $1 from every sale of our feminist/political shirts from 2/1 through 2/28 will be donated to She Should Run. Being a progressive woman-owned business, we have chosen to make She Should Run our Valentine this year, as a way to support other women in leadership.



2. A Day at TopGolf
www.topgolf.com

TopGolf is and has been fun, but new technology makes it even more entertaining.

TopGolf offers low-pressure date activities that you could enjoy on Valentine’s Day OR Galentine’s Day this year.

With a great selection of sharable bites, refreshing drinks, online reservations and a little friendly competition in a cozy atmosphere, Topgolf is the perfect Valentine’s Day destination for couples of all ages and relationship stages.

TopGolf is also introducting Toptracer technology.

The Toptracer that customers will see at Topgolf Orlando, the company’s 36th location, is similar to what viewers see when watching tournament coverage on NBC and Golf Channel. In addition to the iconic line that tracks ball flight, customers will see carry distance, ball speed, height, hang time and the curve of the shot. Justin Norvell, Topgolf Orlando’s director of operations, views it as just one more way for the company to “increase engagement” with its guests.

In Georgia, there is a TopgGolf location in Atlanta and Alpharetta.


 

3. Farmgirl Flowers
www.farmgirlflowers.com

While there is nothing really techy about sending or giving flowers for Valentine's Day... one company that has grown in less than 7 years, starting out in a kitchen and now shipping nationwide uses tech to scale it's business and bring fresh flowers and other gifts to customers all over the country.

Farmgirl Flowers is now a $14.5 million business. Their biggest unexpected challenge has been needing to shift supply chain drastically. Earlier this year we had to pivot from using all US grown flowers to include some imported product. This wasn’t a move we initially wanted to make but was one we needed to make in order to continue to scale with the limited quantities available to us domestically."




4. Man Crates
www.mancrates.com

Personalized crate of goodies for the man in your life.
There are NFL, NHL, college sports, NASCAR themed crates and more...
 

5. Lovepop 3-D Valentine's Cards
www.lovepopcards.com

Lovepop is the perfect fit for any V-day celebration because there are so many varieties to choose from!
Whether you’re looking to send a valentine to a friend, family or your lover, these 3-D cards have got you covered.

 

6.  The Lovebox
https://www.uncommongoods.com/product/lovebox-spinning-heart-messenger

Lovebox really is a box that looks like your ordinary, adorable piece of home decor. However, it's equipped with a mirrored screen on the inside, which is where the magic takes place.
A box where someone can send a message to you through an app and it appears in the box.

The heart on the outside of the box spins, letting the receiver know that they've got mail. (The heart keeps spinning until the lid is opened, so leaving messages for people to come home to is definitely a sweet idea.)
Final step: The apple of your eye sees the heart spinning, opens the lid to view their message, and is showered in hearts plus the text message.

Limpert Tech "SullyCast" on Radio 105.7 - Tech from 2018 Surf Expo

It's been a cold and Icy winter in Atlanta, but Rick is here to warm things up.

He saw everything "sun and fun" at the Surf Expo in Orlando , which wrapped up last weekend.

What were some of Rick's Picks from the Surf Expo?

Have a listen:



1. 4 Ocean Bracelets

4Ocean 2017 Milestones:

2.  Body Glove Crusader

A huge stand up paddleboard.
There is no end to the SUP craze and that is a good thing. At the show, Body Glove debuted their Body Glove Crusader, a 15-foot long, 66-inch wide paddleboard, 6 inches thick, weighing 76lbs, with a max capacity of 1000lbs, good for 4-6 people. This looks like a lot of fun and will be available hopefully for summer.
 

3. Shark Eyes
www.sharkeyesusa.com

Shark Eyes is the world’s most affordable visual shark deterrent. Shark attacks have been a big problem around the world in recent years. This is a sticker for all water users who want to minimize their risk of a shark attack. Developed, and endorsed by watermen and professionals who routinely encounter sharks in the wild, the Shark Eyes decal aims to fools the shark into thinking it’s been spotted, removing the element of surprise and deterring an attack. There are different sizes and prices start around $12. This is a simple idea and solution, but a no-brainer.
