How Microsoft imagines you’ll watch football games with HoloLens

Microsoft has promised to release developer kits for its mixed-reality HoloLens headset in the first quarter of this year at $3,000 a pop. For the rest of us, dramatic CGI video demos will have to suffice.

The company’s latest clip shows how HoloLens could transform your sports viewing experience, with a focus on the NFL. You could enjoy the game on a screen larger than your TV, get a top-down view of the stadium on your coffee table and see players’ holograms and key stats float around your living room.

There’s clearly a long way to go before any of this becomes reality, but the company sure knows how to craft a killer promo video.

It’s previously shown off how HoloLens might help industrial designers collaborate on 3D models and how it could turn your house into a video game level. If you have a great idea for HoloLens, send it to Microsoft to turn it into (mixed) reality.
