Be it American football (NFL) or European football (soccer), the game has a loyal following that runs into millions. With an increasing focus on virtual reality, watching sports is likely to go a radical change, and at least Microsoft has given us a glimpse at the future.

Microsoft and the National Football League have released a concept video that shows off the experience of watching Super Bowl using the HoloLens. “What if game day was no longer confined to your television screen, but covered your room and took over your coffee table? Today, we shared a glimpse of that future in a brand new concept video unveiled at the Super Bowl 50 panel discussion,” Microsoft’s Yusuf Mehdi writes on the company’s blog.

The video shows a room full of people watching NFL with the HoloLens strapped to their head. In addition to being able to watch the game on a much bigger screen, you can get player or game stats with a simple gesture. At one point a 3D hologram of a player too bursts into the room as if he is right there.
The video no doubt hints at an exciting future especially for a sports nut like yours truly, but this is a concept video after all. More often than not, concepts fail to translate into reality, and hence we will only keep our fingers crossed for now. Remember Google Glass’ concept video that promised a future out of Speilberg’s script? Well we know how things really turned out.
