After repeated entanglements, the Tokyo Olympics ushered in the opening last Friday.

The day before the opening, the chief director of the closing ceremony was also fired.

Let me ask everyone first, did you watch the opening ceremony?

Did you watch it in front of the TV or watch it in the Douyin Kuaishou Moments ?

We thought the opening ceremony program was like this (as early as the 2017 Tokyo Olympics Facebook, the MV for the theme song of the Olympics had been released):

In the MV of the theme song, an artificial meteor shower appeared. Although the cost of this unique performance is high, each meteor that crosses the horizon is worth 50,000 yuan, but when the colorful artificial meteors pass the night, the cool ceremony is full, and it is best to make a wish by the way NS.

However, the opening ceremony did not see the meteor shower. Instead, it was replaced by a special effects program discharged by 1824 drones, which formed a five-ring LOGO for a while, and a rotating earth for a while. Echoing the theme of this Olympic Games, that is, “United by Emotion” :

The people of Shenzhen can’t help but feel: This grand event, Shenzhen Bay once a week…

As for the other “hell” is part of a lively discussion, we do not gave an account of the too many points groove opening ceremony, friends address him 08 Olympic YYDS .

In the blink of an eye, 13 years have passed, and the whole world has undergone too many unexpected and unexpected changes. Has it gotten better? It’s not good.

From the Rio closing ceremony five years ago, the then Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe appeared suddenly as Super Mario , opening the prelude to Japan’s campaign for the Tokyo Olympics. Today, although this Games is unpopular in Japan, it is finally about to open under heavy pressure.

As the first postponed Olympic Games in history , the first empty Olympic Games , and the first Olympic Games that has suffered a huge loss before it even started , the Tokyo Olympics is facing the global new crown epidemic-this huge “gray rhino” The definition of “Gray Rhino”, the creator of the term Walker: Obvious, visible, coming straight to you, has a potentially huge influence, and is likely to cause serious consequences), all full of helpless regrets.

The fierce competition has already begun, and there should be many surprises in the next 15 days. As of press time, the Chinese team currently ranks first in the medal list with 6 golds, 3 silvers, and 6 bronzes.

Tokyo 2020, which can be seen everywhere inside and outside the Olympic venues, signifies that this festival is destined to be extraordinary. Apart from the competition, what else can we pay attention to?

01 Is it safe to prevent epidemics? Not optimistic yet

As of July 25, a total of 132 people related to the Tokyo Olympics had been diagnosed with new crown pneumonia, including 12 athletes.

Former South Korean Olympic table tennis champion Yoo Seungmin announced on the 17th that he had arrived at the Japanese airport and tested positive for the new crown virus and is currently under quarantine in the hotel.

Ryu Seungmin won the gold medal in the 2004 Athens Olympics and is now a member of the Athletes Committee of the International Olympic Committee and chairman of the Korean Table Tennis Association.

Athletes who are diagnosed as positive for the new crown are more unfortunate. Not only was physically tortured, but it was also extremely likely to miss the game due to isolation.

The BBC directly asked: Can Japan prevent the Olympics from becoming a new crown super-spreading event?

The Tokyo Olympic Organizing Committee has prepared in advance for the prevention and control of the epidemic:

As long as you come to the competition, you will be asked to sign the “Anti-epidemic Responsibility Exemption” to allow athletes to agree to participate in the Olympics at their own risk.

It’s no wonder that some popular sports gold medalists have given up participating, such as the famous Swiss tennis player Roger Federer , the American tennis star Serena Williams , and the Spanish tennis star Nadal .

Rana Haddad, the chief operating officer of the International Olympic Committee, explained:

“No government, no health department can guarantee that we will not be infected. This is a risk that all of us should take. We are all following the same rules.”

If the finalists test positive for the new crown, they can “waive” and win the silver medal. Not kidding, this is one of the special new regulations for this year’s Olympics.

For example, in basketball, if a participating team has an athlete’s infection in the final stage, it will be deemed to have abstained, and the silver medal will be issued directly, and the opponent will receive the gold medal.

In some events, such as judo, boxing and tennis, in these one-on-one finals, the athletes who are infected will abstain and will be directly awarded silver medals. In track and field, swimming, and other events, the runners-up who were ranked last were resurrected to replace the abstainers.

Athletes: I want, what’s the use of this silver medal? 🥈

Chilean taekwondo player Fernanda Aguirre , Dutch female skateboarder Kendy Jacobs , as well as two South African football players and an American gymnast were all unlucky and arrived in Tokyo on July 20 and 21. Later, he tested positive and had to be quarantined for 10 days, gave up the competition, and missed the medal.

02 Cyberpunk Olympic highlights

The Tokyo Olympics is the first empty game in the history of the Olympic Games for more than 100 years. As an important part of “Abenomics” , Japan originally hoped to use the Olympics to boost the sluggish Japanese economy.

Under various pressures for the Tokyo Olympics, empty venues were a fatal blow to Japan’s Olympic business.

The 45-year-old Takishima Yitong is a veteran Olympic fan. Before the start of the game, he spent 4 million yen to buy 106 Olympic tickets , intending to create a world record for Olympic watching. As a result, the sudden empty-court system caught Takishima by surprise: “To be honest, I am very angry. Obviously I am angry for not being able to go to the stadium to watch the game. What frustrated me most is why they announced it at the last minute? “

But for this decision, I believe the Japanese government is also in tears.

The loss of holding the Olympic Games in empty venues is about 146.8 billion yen, mainly including 90 billion yen in ticket revenue and 56.8 billion spectator consumption expenditures. In contrast to the 1.8 trillion losses faced by the cancellation of the Olympics and Paralympics, the empty field system is a wise choice.

Robots may become the biggest winner

Japan should be one of the world’s favorite countries for robots. In animation works, witty and flexible robot images emerge one after another.

A dream, Astro Boy, Gundam, a new blessing century sound fighter, these well-known cartoon characters, they are actually robots.

This time the Olympic mascot is full of sense of technology. The mascot is named “miraitowa”, which means “future (mirai)” and “forever (towa)”. The image is set as a ” character ” living in the digital world and can use the Internet to move between the digital world and the real world Free communication.

Someone asked, if the empty venues do not wave the flag and cheer in the venues, and there are no on-site supporters to watch, will it affect the performance of athletes?

The answer is, it is really possible.

According to sports medicine, sports center conclusions of science and part sociological study of sports, the audience does have a vacancy that may affect the athletes play, and even change the results. Studies have shown that audience motivation is conducive to the improvement of athletes’ competitive state, no matter at the physical or psychological level.

In addition to placing some cute dolls in the auditorium, the “atmosphere group” of the venue will also add robots that can sing and dance in the stands, banners printed with audience portraits, and will simultaneously broadcast the expressions of the audience watching the game.

For example, the dancing robots owned by Softbank and the robotic dogs owned by Boston Dynamics will dance together to cheer for the athletes.

There will also be T-HR3 simulation robots coming out of the Olympics .

Their function is to replace the audience, imitate the audience’s cheering and cheering actions, and combine the remotely transmitted images and sounds to provide the players with the motivation to move forward. At the same time, virtual reality technology can also be used to transmit remote images and sounds back to the Olympic venues.

On the playing field, the robot will also glow and heat. The field support robot can travel on the competition field at a maximum speed of 20 kilometers per hour, and is equipped with three cameras and a lidar sensor. There is an LED light on the roof.

The FSR field support robot can automatically determine the best tracking route and pick it up based on the trajectory of the hammer and javelin thrown. It can also help the staff in the field avoid obstacles and help reduce equipment pick-up. It takes time and labor required on site.

Panasonic’s backpack-like power-assisted exoskeleton robot device can greatly reduce the burden on the waist of manual workers, and can reduce the burden on the waist muscle by up to about 40%. This device will be used to carry athletes’ luggage at the Tokyo Olympics.

3D, VR holographic projection

The Olympic Games will also introduce 3D and VR holographic projection technology. The main breakthrough of holographic projection is to present the planar scene in front of the audience in 3D.

Nippon Telegraph and Telephone’s 3D holographic projection technology allows the audience to clearly see the tightening or loosening of the muscles on the legs of the contestants. The audience does not even need to resort to VR (virtual reality) headsets or other hardware devices at all.

Olympic partner Intel provided “Intel true VR” technology to get more from the game screen photography tanks installed around the stadium, each photography cabin can accommodate up to 12 cameras. Spectators put on VR helmets and can watch boxing, track and field and gymnastics events from the front row position or from the perspective of the athletes.

AI gymnastics referee

In recent years, in order to reduce the adverse effects of human factors on the results of competitions, in fact, the application of technology to sports judgments is not new.

AI gymnastics referees will be used in this competition. The judges of both AI and the referee will be combined in the competition . After the referee’s comprehensive judgment, the final score will be scored.

Take gymnastics as an example. Although it has a series of standard moves, AI gymnastics referees also obtain the final scores by analyzing these moves, but behind these moves, it is not only a manifestation of standard or not, but also beautiful and unbeautiful. Nuance.

Whether AI referees can make aesthetic judgments based on human emotions is worth looking forward to.

Don’t laugh at environmental protection

The beginning of preparations for the Tokyo Olympic Organizing Committee announced that, should the “reduction” (the Reduce) , “re-use” (Reuse) and “recycling” (Recycle) of the “3R” concept as one of the leading philosophy of the Olympic Games.

For the sake of environmental protection in the Olympic Village, this time the bed frame is made of recyclable cardboard. A bunch of netizens said they were worried that the “Aventure” in the Olympic Village would overwhelm the paper bed. After all, it looks like this:

However, Irish gymnast Rees McLennahan tested it, and there was no problem jumping on the bed.

This year’s medals are extracted from recycled metal from old mobile phones and scrap small appliances. In order to make these 2500 medals, Tokyo collected nearly 80,000 tons of electronic waste and made full use of technological means to extract nearly 32 kilograms of pure gold, 3,500 kilograms of pure silver and 2,200 kilograms of pure copper.

The use of hydrogen energy is also a highlight of the Tokyo Olympics environmental protection, and it is used in torches and transportation.

Of course, there are also driverless cars, instant translators, AI to relieve crowd congestion, 3D athlete tracking technology, advanced 5G technology, etc., all will appear in this Olympics.

I believe that although this Olympics looks relatively deserted, it should also be the most “scientific and technological” Olympic event in history.

This time, the Chinese delegation of 777 people, with determination and glory, will fight again.

The Olympic athletes “fight for the country with their original intentions” and desperately on their respective tracks. On the first day of the Olympics, three Chinese girls, Yang Qian, Hou Zhihui, and Sun Yiwen won three gold medals . “The March of Volunteers” was played in Tokyo in the morning , midnight and evening. The next day, Chinese Olympic athletes won more medals including 3 gold medals.

In the men’s double 10-meter platform final that just ended in the afternoon, Chinese diving players Cao Yuan and Chen Aisen made a mistake in the fourth jump. Although the next two jumps were almost perfect, they lost to the British team by one point. Chai ranked second and won the silver medal. After the game, the two players were unconcealed disappointment, but the Chinese viewers have been providing comfort and support on the Internet, and I believe they can also feel the power from the motherland.

As viewers, we expect them to not only win glory for the country, but also hope that they can return safely, protect them, and put safety first.

Coubertin, the founder of the modern Olympics, has already had the best interpretation of the Olympic spirit:

“The most important thing in the Olympics is not victory, but participation; just as the most important thing in life is not success, but struggle; but the most essential thing is not conquering, but hard work.”
