In a blog post written by Yusuf Mehdi, Corporate Vice President of Microsoft’s Windows and Devices Group, Microsoft and NFL are presently looking into how technology could revolutionize the Super Bowl in the next 50 years – and met at a panel discussion to thrash out issues on this futuristic idea.

Both sides considered “The Future of Football: How Technology Could Shape the Next 50 Years of the Game,” and analyzed a video into this future at the Super Bowl 50 panel discussion.

The idea behind the meeting and unveiling the concept video at the panel was to brainstorm on how technology could be deployed on the field and at home and everywhere using Microsoft Hololens at NFL football.

The futuristic concept video reveals how sports fans could experience football with great reality using Hololens to view the NFL game – not only on TV screens, but even on coffee tables and walls with player stats and instant replays among other displays all visible to the user.

Fans and viewers would be able to watch their favorite players via high-definition 3D displays made possible with Hololens running on Windows 10, enabling viewers to experience the skills and sportsmanship of players with their stats inclusive.

“That game-changing play could pop up as a 3D hologram so you could view the field from all angles, all while your fantasy scores update in real time, without the need for you to look down at another screen,” Mehdi wrote.

On the side note, since the Microsoft Hololens Development Edition ships in the first quarter of 2016, interested developers are advised to apply for it right now.
