Moonshot technologies and how they link to Floorball


Team Sports can and may be changed is several different ways.
A) We may develop the big things we have
B) We can introduce new sports
C) We may change the reason why we do sports

Here at Floorballcentral we think all this will happen.

A) We know that Big Data and Artificial Intelligence are about to happen - and we can not see how this will stay away from virtually any sport known to man.

B) We ourselves tries to introduce a fully new team sport here in the US - that we think is fully superior for most kids - unfortunately not known yet to the big masses - so this is the problem that wrestle with the tensions between early adoption and mass adoption. By the way - An incredible interesting challenge.

C) In case you seriously look at the drivers or reasons why we do sports - beside of the fun and the thrill part - we here are convinced that human health must take a much larger stake in the core reasons why we do our sports.

And all this together...it leaves us with Moonshot ideas for how sport ought to look like. Most people say that Moonshots are crazy. But most people are wrong. Right now the time is right for Moonshots - just look at Silicon Valley.

Yesterday Larry Page at Google sent out a Google founders letter... This is a guy that knows his Moonshots..
Let us just quote him on on how he describe invention and reinvention:

"It’s amazing what you can achieve with a small dedicated team when you start from first principles and aren’t encumbered by the established way of doing things. Yet I’ve learned over time that it’s surprisingly difficult to get teams to be super ambitious because most people haven’t been educated in this kind of moonshot thinking. They tend to assume that things are impossible, or get frightened of failure. It’s why we’ve put so much energy into hiring independent thinkers at Google, and setting big goals. Because if you hire the right people and have bold enough dreams, you’ll usually get there. And even if you fail, you’ll probably learn something important."   / Larry Page.

So even if Floorballcentral ends up failing - we S T I L L learn a lot!

But we can not think that we will fail.
We do believe that sports of tomorrow will be very much integrated into both big data and why not "living" computergames. Just imagine to watch the World Floorball Championships final as "a live player" on an Oculus Rift or something in 4K - or beyond? 
We further seriously believe that Floorball will make a huge dent in all old teams sports we have available - why - since this is just something that makes full sense and the opposite (to only further develop century old team sports) is absurd. 
- And, finally, it would not surprise us at all if companies that work with health care one day will start to pay recreational Floorball players by the hour - just as an action of preventive medicine. The only thing to get this done is to build another economic system of medical investments. Money exists already to the trillions for the ones already sick - the trick is to prevent parts of these expenditures from happen - at a much lower costs.  Floorball could most likely be a part of such a solution - we say - as our own bold Moonshot.
Moonshots by the way? Maybe to you - but not to us here - and most likely not to Larry Page neither.

Caution

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!
