Casting Doubt On the Hawkeye Ball-Calling System

Bun Re:Why not use... (220 comments)

Why not use a radio transmitter in the tennis ball (or soccer ball or whatever) to record its exact position? I am certain this has been discussed and I wouldn't be surprised if it's already in use. The article's "Hawkeye" just works by optical analysis.

It's been tried in soccer. The latest attempts were prior to the last couple of World Cups IIRC, but the systems were plagued with problems, not the least of which was the survival of the transmitter.

IBM to build Canada's most powerful supercomputer

Bun (34387) writes "The University of Toronto and IBM have agreed to launch Canada's most powerful supercomputer. Details are pretty sketchy at the moment. It does appear that it will be a cluster, but no there is no word on which OS it will run or on what hardware."
