Interview
What drives you?
Looking to the past sport has not always been associated with technology but the world is changing fast. Arno is an Engineer by trade and a sportsman from the heart so for him what could be more natural than combining the two!! He is a born Business Initiator. His commitment and enthusiasm inspires people. With his technology background and commercial experience enabling him to connect both worlds.

What are the three things you would take with you on a deserted island?
Ball, knife and a radio

What emerging technologies/trends do you see as having the greatest potential in the short and long run?
I strongly believe in Additive Manufacturing, Artificial Intelligence, Augmented Reality, Digital Mobile, Integrated Tech, Internet of Things, Materials, Quantified Self and Virtual Reality. A trend I see is Gamification.

What kind of impact do you expect them to have?
We will exercise more

What are the barriers that might stand in the way?
It’s only a matter of time. Clubs, Federations, Governments and Municipalities will try to control this. In the end they have to facilitate.

Why should the delegate attend your presentation?
We are disrupting the complete dental industry

3D-printed surfboard fins – How 3D Printing can revolutionise surfing (Video)

Surfers could create their own custom fins as UOW researchers bring additive manufacturing to surfboard design

Ever dreamed of surfing some of the world’s best surf breaks all in the name of research?

That’s exactly what a team of students and academics from the University of Wollongong (UOW) did on a recent trip to the remote Mentawai Islands, located off West Sumatra in Indonesia. Continue reading “3D-printed surfboard fins – How 3D Printing can revolutionise surfing (Video)”

Fins and surfboards: 3D printing, IoT, big data, machine learning and performance testing – Presented by Marc in het Panhuis, University of Wollongong

Fins and surfboards: 3D printing, IoT, big data, machine learning and performance testing – Presented by Marc in het Panhuis, University of Wollongong, at the Sports Innovation Conference, which will take place on February 13, 2019, at High Tech Campus Eindhoven, The Netherlands.

Surfing is an iconic sport that is extremely popular in coastal regions. Current surfboard fin manufacturers produce high end products using an expensive injection moulding process to create hydro-foil shaped fins. This process, however, does not allow for easy customisation or rapid prototyping.

I will talk about the development of surfboard fins using a performance feedback loop. This loop involves the unique combination of computational fluid dynamics, computer aided design, 3D printing, stiffness/flex testing, ocean testing (surfing the waves), embedded sensors / wearables, the Internet-of-Things, machine learning and surfers’ perceptive experiences. I will finish my talk with my progress on measuring the mechanical flex behaviour of surfboards.

High-tech factory of Adidas brings back production to Germany

High-tech factory of Adidas brings back production to Germany. Behind closed doors in the Bavarian town of Ansbach a new factory is taking shape. That it will use robots and novel production techniques such as additive manufacturing (known as 3D printing) is not surprising for Germany, which has maintained its manufacturing base through innovative engineering. What is unique about this factory is that it will not be making cars, aircraft or electronics but trainers and other sports shoes—an $80bn-a-year industry that has been offshored largely to China, Indonesia and Vietnam. By bringing production home, this factory is out to reinvent an industry. Continue reading “High-tech factory of Adidas brings back production to Germany”
