Finally, we should remember that professional sports are a deeply social challenge, where raving fans go through drama: fears, glory, victories and losess of their favourite teams.
For the purpose of the client Penn State, EON Sports VR created Lion Vision VR where raving fans get to see confidential practice, coaches’ motivational talks, as well as best close-ups of top moments on the track field. The growing library of content is available in 2D and 360 so far, yet it gets updated regularly.
Tech startup Virtually Live wants to incorporate the social component of VR. In this experience, stadium and players are showed virtually in almost real time, while fans can step into the game and interact. Each of the fans has an avatar and can interact with others through VoIP technology.
