Yup, we officially need this for the NBA. Often times, we only have two decent angles from cameras, sometimes reveal conflicting results, and the referees' point of view. A 360 degree panoramic "freeD" view would increase the speed and accuracy of the referee review process. I hate it when they spend minutes reviewing a play...destroys the total momentum.

I watched it in action at Indian Wells this year. It's totally outstanding. Every sport should use it because it adds a lot to the game for the spectators. And it facilitates referee's work, too.


And as a long-time tennis player/fan, I can assure you it could also be a marvelous way to improve your own game.

It can actually be a groundbreaking technology for all kinds of sport.



Real life is looking more and more like a videogame!
