The history of sports probably extends as far back as the existence of people as active beings. The history of sports informs a great deal about social changes and about the nature of sport itself.
In the current era, as technology changes at an exponential rate, the social impacts are varied and deep rooted. This implies a great deal of change in sports too.
As we move into the era of robotics, machines, transhumans, cyborgs, prosthetics and exoskeletons, the future of sports seems even more disrupted. And it raises questions at different levels.
On the ground level, how will sports and sports-viewing experiences evolve? On the next level, how will the sportsperson of the future look like? And on a much higher level, we raise questions on ethics in sports, sportsmanship, and team spirit.
