Sci-fi essay concept

leave a comment »

My initial concept for sci-fi essay is how cyborg/cyber technology affects the Olympic Games in the future. I am especially focusing on wearable computing devices as high-tech gears for the Olympic athletes.
My essay starts from the argument about innovative technology of sports equipments such as running and swimming wears, more comfortable shoes and better-designed bicycles. Professional athletes are no longer able to avoid this argument for enhancing their performance.

Scenario:
If The International Olympic Committee allows using any type of cyborg wears (power suit?) and cyber sports equipments (bikes, ski, ice-skate etc), what is going to happen in the games?

 

The Size of HAL becomes smaller like a Speedo’s LZR Racer swimsuit. It can be worn as a ultra- lightweight power suit uniform. Even if a person is not a cyborg, technology will creates a super athlete in the future.
