Corner  –  World first digital boxing trainer - Mylo Kaye

Corner is the first complete boxing performance tracker. It comprises a complete Internet of Things (IoT) solution which uses unobtrusive wrist-worn sensors, fitting underneath the boxing gloves. Dreamr’s app design and development team worked closely with clients Athletec through each stage of this innovative and cutting-edge project. Historically, in order to understand the quality of their performance, combat athletes have had no alternative but to rely on expensive video playback, with many cameras required to provide an adequate assessment. The high cost and setup requirements have meant that this technology has been far out-of-reach for the vast majority of gyms and athletes. Coach driven assessment to remember accurately every detail of a session is both unrealistic and ultimately imprecise. The English Institute of Sport reports coaches and athletes only recall 30% of performance correctly. In the sporting world where even tiny incremental nuances in performance can mean the difference between winning and losing, Corner has been designed to revolutionise this process. An onboard microprocessor determines key statistics from every punch thrown by a boxer, whether it be jab or a strong right hook, and delivers the feedback via Bluetooth to a smartphone app for both display and storage over time.

Four day week and why you should adopt it

Four day week, is it productive? Four day week, what is it? When I started out in business a few years ago, I wanted teams of people working as much as possible to get more done. Unfourtnetly you can only get so much out of one person, never mind my 13 staff. Henry Ford first proposed the idea of a 8 hour day back in the 1900’s, his staff typically worked around 14 hours a day. He found, however that by working fewer hours, his staff were more focused and more productive. In 1926, Ford Motor company became one of the first businesses in the world to adopt a five-day, 40 hour week. Today, it’s the norm. An article in the New York Times times by CEO James Fried reported that his were more productive, healthier and motivated by working four days a week. With less time to work, there was less time to waste. They were more focused and determined at getting the job done. At Dreamr, my staff have extra long lunches, attend local events and on a Wednesday, they have dedicated time to learn new skills. They even use it to brush up on old ones or
