Whether stopwatch, target photography or fitness tracker: Sport as we know it is a product of our technological world. It developed in the 19th century, when physical competitions were more standardized, sports equipment was designed in a more sophisticated way in terms of shape and material, and performance was analyzed and measured more precisely. Sport is part of everyday life today - for example when sneakers advance from sports shoes to fashion accessories, a comprehensive fan culture with chants and rituals shapes sporting events or the limits of physical self-optimization are hotly debated in doping scandals.
