The Smart Energy Building hosts a digital and technological Sport Science Lab, named U-Gym. It is a cutting-edge gym with particular equipment for indoor training with LCD display for the interaction with a virtual coach by the use of a Cloud platform. Each sport equipment allows the user to access at a personal account in which training programs, results archive, favourite websites and social networks are present. Moreover, some of these instruments are able to produce electricity thanks to the “human movement”; this energy is injected into the Smart Energy Building and used inside offices, laboratories and also into the gym.
The access to U-Gym is automatically controlled by a virtual gap: the door can be opened by the use of a special bracelet (the same used for sport equipments) or by using Android or iOS Apps.
