Kits of the Future [infographic]

Football, sometimes known as soccer, is one of the worlds’ most coveted games. Millions of dollars are invested in the game and people spend tons on tickets and merchandise. With such popularity, the game needs to adapt to changing times, but how can the sport be made to better serve the viewers as well as allow the referees to make better calls? We only need to look to the future!

Live player stats can be monitored throughout the game. Items that will be cataloged is a multitude of information like the amount ran, accuracy, and time on the field. This could easily settle the arguments about which player is the best.

We all know that some players have huge egos that can lead to dishonest behavior such as pretending to be hit hard. Impact visualizers will provide different colors in the event of a strong hit or a soft hit made by player against another. Impact visualizers could potentially put an end to babies rolling around on the field trying to get the opposing player another electronically displayed yellow card on their shoulder.

For even better visuals, jerseys can be illuminated  as well as carry live ads that will grant the spectators to register more precise movements made by players and draw in more money. Just how might these kits (uniforms) be powered, you ask? The kits will be powered by the kinetic energy of a player that will be converted to an electrical current. Yeah, the future.

Soccer (football), just as life, is ever changing. Stay tuned. Keep loving the game and enjoy what the future has to offer! [via]

Infographic: Hot Data – Has Your Data Been Compromised?

Mankind’s search for a meaningful identity in an often confusing world is as old as our species itself. But on the Internet, matters of identity are less about discovering who you might be than they are about protecting who you already are. Identity theft cost consumers over $18 billion in 2012 alone, and with identity theft claiming a new victim every three seconds, data security has become both a major concern for consumers and a very profitable business for the credit industry. In addition to security vulnerabilities or malicious attacks from domestic hackers, international attacks are also a concern for private citizens, corporate behemoths, and government institutions.

Infographic: How to Create the Perfect Password

So what constitutes the “perfect” password? If you’re serious about security, a strong password will include a mix of upper and lower case letters, numbers, symbols, and even non-keyboard characters. It will be unique (using the same password for everything might be common, but it’s also spectacularly unsafe). Strong, adequate, or weak, no password can protect against every possible threat. But by following our tips, you can help keep your social media accounts in your own hands, make your financial info safer, and encourage meddling thieves and hackers to seek easier prey.

Incandescent Vs LED Christmas Lights [infographic]

As Halloween quickly approaches, it’s time to start thinking about the holiday that matters the most year round. Christmas, is without a doubt, a time that brings families and communities together in celebration, and even competition. We all love to get involved with traditions and festivities that go along with “the most wonderful time of the year.”

Christmas lights bring back so many memories for so many people that the tradition of hanging lights is a fun, yet thoroughly arduous activity. After all the hard work is done, there definitely comes a sense of thankfulness. Once you have your lights up, you can be thankful that you have a roof over head, you can be thankful that your lights will more often than not make others happy, as well as make you feel that you are a part of something bigger than yourself.

Although Christmas lights bring happy feelings and look great, Christmas lights can be expensive. According to this infographic, people can be spending way more than they have to on their electric bill. Although LED lights are more expensive than incandescents, the cost of running them is far below the cost to run incandescents.

Though not traditional, LEDs run with lower wattage, longer life-spans, you can connect more strings, and you never have to replace bulbs. By saving on electricity (money), you have more money to spend on those you care for and more time to enjoy it with them. [via]

How Many Lines of Code Does it Take? [Infographic]

They say that coding is a language of sorts. A series of text files that ultimately are turned into 1′s and 0′s that make up a localized universe of whatever the coder intends. In this way I like to think about the programs and operating systems that we use everyday as books of sorts, and coders as the authors of these books. I know the book analogy is kind of pushing a bit far from the source, but for me it’s a way to mentally picture how much typing, thought, and information goes into the operating systems of the technology of today.

I’m not a coder myself (so please correct me if I butcher this) but basically a line of code constitutes some sort of variable to be analyzed by a computer calculator. There can also be lines of logistical preferences – action words that give input as to what to do with these variables. Also there can be lines in which to comment on these previous iterations of code – this serves to help the coder remember what the heck all of these lines of code mean. Although I’m not sure if the statistics of this infographic pertain to comment code (most likely not), it is quite astounding just how many lines of code it takes to make some of these technological operations work. Facebook for instance has at least 15 times more code in it than a Large Haydron Collider does (pre debugging). I don’t know about you, but that is kind of frightening and amazing at the same time.
