PGA Tour's second-screen iPad app bombards you with stats, video

Even the most ardent golf fan would admit that sometimes tournament telecasts aren't exactly action-packed. The PGA Tour is trying to do something about that with its new iPad app, available just in time for this week's World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship. The second-screen app compliments the live action, giving you shot-by-shot coverage of players or groups, all overlaid onto a graphic of each hole. On top of all the stats you'd ever want (drive length, distance to hole, etc.) the app even gives predictive stats, showing how likely Rory McIlroy is to make that 25-foot putt he's facing, for instance.

There's also a birds-eye overview of the course to see where the leaders are and the relative difficulty of the hole they're playing. You can then track each swing complete with shot trails, along with more predictive stats about scoring from a given ball location. You'll also get live streaming video, player scorecards, a live leaderboard, news and highlights. That'll give you something to do when Bubba is gaging the wind or Tiger is stalking a putt (Tiger's not playing this week, by the way). For now, the new app is only available on the iPad.

Crocs 'midair shoe store' is staffed by drones

My friends and family don't let me wear Crocs. But still, I'm in the middle of Tokyo to see Crocs send a drone flying to pick up a (hypothetical) customers' shoes. It's all to do with promoting the shoemaker's new range of lightweight Norlin footwear -- they're not the Crocs you're thinking of -- and it involves a custom-built drone delivering the correct style and size to the customer. On top of that, it's all automated, so it's like a giant Crocs-themed vending machine... albeit with drones.

"The flying Norlin project" was made to celebrate ten years of Crocs in Japan -- yeah, you see a lot of pairs of Crocs here. The concept is the company's perhaps overly-elaborate way of explaining how light its new sneakers are. The custom-built drones have arms especially built for hooking the sneakers of your choosing, and this particular flyer can handle up to 600 grams -- enough to handle one of eighty pairs on show several meters high. To reiterate, the new shoes are light. Let's not forget that. Very light. Yes.

Sports retail sales assistants: your jobs are very much safe for now.

At the big press event unveiling, the drone builds up a bit of momentum, then deep-dives towards a pair of sneakers in order to hook them off. However, in reality, sometimes it didn't quite pull it off. It's like it was playing a crane catcher game in an arcade -- so close.

The initial run was a success however, and we saw a few more pairs get hooked eventually. Sports retail sales assistants: your jobs are very much safe for now. Don't expect these giant Crocs stores to appear in your neighborhood -- or anywhere else for that matter. The project got some help from conceptual engineering and design teams Birdman and Enjin, but it's just this single 'mid-air' store that's the result.

Contextually, if a company could ensure the safety of customers, and had the ceiling height for it, there's not much to stop this being a very real thing -- it's more about the spectacle of the delivery than the product, arguably. (And just how efficient could a drone be? Battery life isn't one of their strong points.) Japanese customers will be able 'experience' the drone store in Tokyo Midtown until the end of the weekend, although it seems like they'll have to make their actual purchases at normal stores, and interact with, ugh, other humans.

Original Paint: 1969 Datsun 510
This 1969 Datsun 510 is said to run and drive with minimal rust, the seller adding that this unusual but attractive paint color remains factory-original. An L20B/5-speed drivetrain is a great start, and excluding speaker cut outs in the door cards, the interior looks pretty nice as well. Bodywork is imperfect, but straighter fenders are included. Find it here on Craigslist in Salem, Oregon for $6,500 or trade.
