The Smithsonian's Lemelson Center for the Study of Invention and Innovation has released a video examining the history and technology of the football helmet. IMPACT: The Evolution of Football Helmets is part of the center’s multi-year Invention, Sport and Technology initiative, and is one of many educational efforts that it intends to produce for the public as it builds towards the opening of an invention, sport and technology exhibit at the National Museum of American History in 2022.
Our CEO Shawn Springs is on camera discussing the state of the industry and the role Windpact is playing in equipment innovation. We are truly honored to be included in this feature and thoroughly enjoyed working with the teams from the Smithsonian and SportTechie.
