Bowling Alleys Made of Carbon Graphene Coatings Considered
The other day, I was reading about some researchers, I had met a while back who had come up with a carbon composite and graphene coating for a court to be used in a certain sport. Indeed, I immediately thought of some of the other potential uses, and it makes sense that perhaps we should make bowling alleys out of these materials. Right now these materials are quite expensive, and therefore they are used for space and satellite industry, and the military uses these materials for jet fighter planes.
Nevertheless, all this transfer technology is coming down the pipeline, and it will soon be used in sports as we move into a new technologically advanced age with the super materials. You may not realize this but carbon nanotubes, and graphene can conduct electricity. This means a bowler can replay the exact movements and direction of the ball as it traveled down the alley, and even keep a record of it. Imagine the incredible advantage in trying to improve your game by watching and observing lines on the floor of the bowling alley helping you visualize your consistency, and ball tracking.
It would be much like looking at overlays of various tracks of hurricanes over several years, the kind that you see during hurricane season as meteorologists and folks at the National Hurricane Center try to predict the path of any current hurricane based on past paths. If you are serious bowler, perhaps you’ve gotten some instruction over the years. Even if a bowling alley cannot afford to make all of their alleys at of carbon and graphene coatings, it would behoove them to make a few using these materials allowing bowling instructors to train newbie bowlers using them. Yes, also for professional, serious bowlers to hone their skills for upcoming money tournaments.
Once you have such a system, a bowler could download their last few games onto their iPad using a special bowling app. This would enable them to visualize exactly what they are doing; both right and wrong. Their learning curve will be substantially lowered, and their timeline for improving their game will substantially increase. It makes sense to upgrade our currently already pretty high-tech and robotic bowling alleys, and bring them into the 21st century.
It’s hard to say if anyone is working on these technologies yet, but since they are going to be introduced to other sports, I imagine it will not be more than seven or eight years until you start seeing these alleys used by serious tournament players. Indeed I hope you will please consider all this and think on it.
