Sports fans have had a serious eye on Disney in recent weeks.
Between the NBA’s season restart and the MLS is Back tournament, Disney World is home to a big piece of the return of live sports. Of course, that’s not Disney’s ONLY collection to sports — the company also owns ESPN, and it looks like they might’ve invented something NEAT for sports fans.
We were persuing Disney patents (as we do) when we spotted a new one for “event enhancement using augmented reality effects.” Hmm…okay, we’re interested. The new invention uses a small augmented reality device like these glasses.
Guests at a live sports game would be able to wear the augmented reality device to be able to see animations on the field. Think about the line of scrimmage or animations of plays when you watch football on TV — this tech could give us all that in person!
Wow! That sounds super interesting and high tech. Of course, Disney is often making strides in the augmented reality department, but we could see this tech adding some serious value to watching sports live. As always, stay tuned to DFB to hear about the latest Disney inventions!
