microsoft shared a glimpse of the future of sports viewership with a concept video on how technology could shape the next 50 years of american football. with the ‘hololens’, sports fans can extend the experience of watching a game beyond existing screens with mix reality interactions that showcase player states, and instant replays directly on a coffee table.

NFL and microsoft hope to use 3D holograms to bring the ‘the big game’ to life, allowing users to experience athleticism and skill behind each team’s stats. major events during a game could pop up as a 3D display that can be viewed from all angles without the need to look down at another screen like a tablet or smartphone. check out the video above to some of the early thinking around how ‘hololens and the NFL could bring football to life in any living room.
