Remember Brad Pitt and his maths guru trying to figure out Baseball with statistics in Moneyball? Well, replace the mathematics genius by a technology used to track missiles and you’re in for an awful lot of numbers. This innovation presumably already used by some NBA teams provides data susceptible to influence strategic decisions. By calculating how many miles one player runs or the number of passes during a game, it would be able to¬†accurately¬†determine crucial information such as a player’s worth.

Second in today’s tech tour takes us into a live stream of a patient going under the knife. But don’t panic yet! We’re talking eye surgery here and this is actually an operation that renders HD-like vision within 20 minutes. This is obviously a great news for those with blurry vision as well as a great example of how tech can significantly improve our everyday lives.
