Heddoko @ Collision 2015 - Show Notes

Description

While we may have encountered a lot of fitness tracking technology at this year's International Consumer Electronics Show, we certainly didn't encounter anything quite like this one. Heddoko has taken its cues from the gaming and motion capture world, creating a full-body suit that is capable of tracking your every movement and compare it to known data.

For example, if your trainer tells to do an exercise a particular way, the system is capable of telling whether or not you were able to accomplish that goal. If you were not, the system can also tell you where you might have missed and make recommendations on how to improve on subsequent attempts. This helps with strength, balance and, even more importantly, properly balanced training.

Heddoko is currently in its initial production run for sports teams and other professionals, but will be available to the public in the future.

Trey Davis

Host

Trey was born into a tech career. Instead of going to summer camp as a child, Trey spent summers working at the local news station with his father, an Emmy award winning news director. He honed his audio skills singing in a band, and later worked as a lighting and audio technician for a theme park. Within two years he became the lead technician for the entire park, which included a fully operational CNN sponsored TV station, a full theater and a circus. Later, he became the lead lighting and audio tech for one of the Ringling Bros. circuses, with a stint as a clown for the pure joy of performing. It was at Ringling that he met his wife, who he calls the most beautiful, loving, and funny person he has ever met, and who is also the creator of the 3000 Brigade. Trey was a performer with the 3000 Brigade for nine shows, as well as hosting the 3000 Brigade Podcast, while still doing media on the side. Trey currently edits and cleans audio for PLuGHiTz shows and has also been a special events host.
