I heard they prepare some androids with football skills, basketball shoes that give all sorts of boosters to players and the genetically-improved athletes will break record after record. How about tennis? What will become of the white sport? Lacoste, the famous French brand, presents its vision in the following clip:



This vision was presented with the occasion of Lacoste founder’s 75th anniversary. The famous crocodile brand proposes its worldwide internet users to contribute to the reinvention of the white sport. 75 years ago, Lacoste started out providing tennis gear to the most renowned players back then. Lacoste now wants its fans to envision how tennis gear would look in 75 years from now, in 2083.

The clip depicts one of the best ideas provided by Lacoste’s fans. Supposedly, the game will get more dynamic and therefore players have to be equipped with armors to protect themselves from the speeding balls. The tennis racket will no longer feature strings; these will be replaced by some sort of resistant energy field. Moreover, the player will use special visors which are supposed to provide detailed info on possible ball trajectories.

Can’t wait to see how football will be played by 2083. Will there be super-intelligent android goalies? That would definitely make things difficult and force human players to find new ways of scoring.
