Thing 7

So Thing 7 is talking about ANYTHING technology related..... that sure is open-ended.....

Hmmm..... well this may be a little out there BUT..... this past weekend I went and cheered my sister on as she ran a marathon. The technology related part is that each runner is given a band to put on their shoes (or around their ankle for some runners who ran barefoot....that's another story). This band has some sort of chip or something in it that recorded her time as she crossed the finish line. Not only that though, but I was just looking at the results online and it also recorded her time at 2 other points during the race....... This makes me think about track and field days back in elementary school when they had to have multiple people with stop watches. Oh how times have changed! (And I'm only 24 by the times have changed rather quickly)

7 down, 16 to go!

  1. One of my cousins had something like this, but it synced with her ipod. It broke into her music or podcast and told her how far she had gone. She kept it in a pouch on one of her shoes and it fell out, never to be replaced. Still interesting.
