I watched this a while ago.  It's worth a look for anyone interested in technology applied to sport, or in judging.  I tend to watch competitive skating very little these days, and when I do I'm not interested in the points, just in the performance - but I appreciate others, including the skater who has worked so hard, want the judging to be fair and I think especially in the area of jumps where things happen so fast, there is mileage in looking into something more automated to support the humans in the process.  I think there's also potential for coaching, both in person and remotely.
