Consider making your next corporate event swing. The GolfTec Mobile Learning System combines technology, entertainment and education to offer golf buffs the chance to test their skills. Participants take a swing, which is digitally recorded and analyzed against a model swing by a PGA professional with similar physical characteristics. A beep sounds when the participant achieves his or her ideal swing. This virtual driving range can also drive traffic to a corporate client's Web site: Each participant's analysis can be posted on the client's Web site, with tips and drills for further improvement.
