Besides being a lover of cars and motorsports, I am also a tech nerd and when it comes to helping others; well that’s never a bad thing is it? So when all three things converge, its almost a given that I will give it some deserved attention on my little corner of the internet. Below you will see a video from a TED Talk last year in which Peter van Manen, Managing Director for McLaren Electronics explains how the technology, methods, and practices normally relegated to Formula 1 can actually contribute to keeping at-risk babies healthy.
If you are like me, the thought of F1 tech contributing to the wellbeing of newborns is pretty bewildering. The best way to experience the video below is to go in with that same bewilderment and then let Mr. van Manen enlighten you. It will be the best 8 minutes you spend on the internet all day!
