Glow in the Dark Badminton - What A Rush

July 05, 2011 | Comments: 0 | Views: 177

I just happened to see a YouTube video featuring glow-in-the-dark badminton. It was one of the coolest things I've ever seen. The badminton birdie had LED lights on it, and as you hit it, it lit up and started to dim within a few seconds, as it was time for the next player to hit it again. Almost like a firefly. It was the coolest thing I'd ever seen, and these players were playing in the dark. I was amazed at how good they were. In fact, it reminded me of a great way to improve one's badminton game, and a great way to practice. After all if you are practicing in the dark, you have to have full control of everything else.

Now then, the net also had a small LED white light which was also dim, and a small strip on the floor for the boundaries of the court. The players had a "T" of reflective stripe, a glow-in-the-dark strip, on the front of their uniforms. You couldn't tell exactly what the player was doing, but you could see them move and the "T" would bend and contort as they went after the birdie. It seems to me that glow-in-the-dark badminton could be a very fun sport here the United States, and it should be taken up, and also used to train our US Olympic badminton team.

I can't wait to play it at night myself because it looks so cool. Of course, you have to make sure your eyes had adjusted before you start playing, and it might take a few games to get the hang of, but eventually I believe you could master the sport, and learn quite a bit about your badminton tactics and your personal style by doing this. Not only that, but since you are playing in the dark all the distractions are gone, so you can give it your full attention. And you wouldn't be able to tell whom you are playing with, which brings up another good point.

As you probably realize there are now badminton robots, and if you played in the dark with a robot, you might forget that you are playing against a machine, and you could play until your heart's content, for hours on end without the robot getting tired. What an awesome workout, just imagine the amount of calories you could burn off, the weight you could lose, and the agility you could attain. Indeed I hope you will please consider all this and think on it.
