That's right people the sporting armchair experience is going to change big time in the very near future.
We all have been living in an AR world already when it comes to sports watching, think NFL first-down lines, ice hockey puck tracking, DRS systems in cricket the list goes on.
Next up is VR, i for one can't wait until i can actually be at Old Trafford watching from the stands and experiencing the atmosphere or a local derby, listening to the singing around the stands, feeling the emotion of the game and really living and breathing the passion. Who know's i might even start to support Man U one day but i very much doubt it
Sports is one of the domains where technology is being put to use in the most effective and aggressive way. We’ve already become used to the presence of augmented reality (AR) in sports. Think about watching football without the projected first-down line or hockey without puck tracking. Now, with the sudden leap that VR has taken recently, the sport experience is being amplified and becoming more immersive in nearly every possible field, ranging from consuming content to training and recruiting athletes.
