Have you ever wondered what it would be like to watch a football game from the 50-yard line? No, not in seats on the side of the field, but actually ON the field? Or how about watching a basketball game from center court, running with the players? Although the idea is great, it usually isn't wise to put your chair in the middle of the action like that! Since 1993, we have been developing a technology that would allow you to see these and even wilder views of the world!
Virtualized Reality technology points a set of cameras at an event, and allows the viewer to virtually fly around, and watch the event from completely new positions. In a football game, you could watch the game from the point of view of the quarterback! Read on for more technical details.
