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.

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.
