Demand Deep Design - Rule 6

As Mr. Goetz lay out rule number 6 on how to spot the future he calls it “demand deep design”.

We do not think we have to analyze in detail what he say in his article, it is kind of obvious that Apple is good on technical design and if you have a website with some bad touches of an ugly user interface....well it is not a strong candidate for the future irrespective of your brilliant idea...

But how may Floorball match up to good or deep design?
Balls first; The Floorball ball weighs in at 23 grams and you may never ever see the phenomena in floorball as you see in youth soccer - aka cluster ball. The young ones (4-6 years of age) run after a soccer ball that is so heavy for them in comparative terms...that it means that... well they move faster than the ball and the new cluster ball sport is a fact.
Against most other Ball sports, Floorball win a knockout victory here. A 600 gram basketball for young kids? Is that to be serious?
OK, table tennis and badminton also sport lightweight tools, of the trade, but these are not team sports and... it is only golf, beside of a Floorball ball ,that has aerodynamic patterns in the ball to improve its flight. A hockey puck? Maybe they will invent the aerodynamic hockey puck too in a 100 years time or so... sic.

The Floorball ball design is just superior.

The sticks?
Most reasonable streetwise kids may easily compare any Ice Hockey stick, Field Hockey stick, Lacrosse stick, or Bandy stick with a cool Floorball stick and there is no doubt that Floorball sticks are not only the coolest sticks on the planet - both in terms of graphical design, but also as a tool to play a fast and very sensitive sport with.
It is also worth to mention the “ventilated blades” you have on a Floorball stick - it drives speed, lowers weight and makes it look even cooler.
And with OXDOG’S new one piece full carbon designed stick, well we will be in the future already this fall.

We also think the clean gameplay and the relatively constructive rules used - is another part of the vital and deep design in Floorball.

Heck, Floorball defines the definition of Deep Design in all areas  - as a sport.

Yet again we say that Floorball score 100% according to how Mr. Goetz say that we might spot the future as he use his 6th rule on deep design.

Next post in this series will be on the last rule on how to spot the future and then we will try to wrap things up.

This is our post 6 on the subject as described by Mr. Goetz - on how to spot the future - as we relate his article to Floorball. Here are our other posts:
and the second


"Thomas Goetz is Executive Editor of Wired Magazine, overseeing everything from story conception to cover packages. In addition to guiding editorial content, Goetz writes frequently for the magazine on health and technology."
It is our understanding that beside of  this article, that we refer to here, Mr. Goetz, also have been presenting the subject "how to spot the future" to live audiences. In his article he defines 7 rules on "how to spot the future".
Since Floorballcentral is convinced that Floorball is what is next in sports we take the rules - as they are defined by Mr. Goetz - and see how Floorball as a sport and a movement match up to these rules. We are fully aware that what Mr. Goetz wrote in his article mainly aim for "tech" development. This is not something we see as an obstacle. This is post 6 in a series of 7 + 1 that relates to the following article by Mr. Goetz.

Read it at the source and get the real feel for what is next.

Research suggest that eye-injuries are more common in Floorball as compared to Tennis, but less common as compared to Squash (similar to Racquetball).
To minimize this risk of injury Floorballcentral recommend: Use certified protective eye-wear (mandated in many European areas for the youth). Do not lay down on the court. Follow the rules strict on stick height.

Also if you get addicted to this sport - do not blame us!
