Virtual Reality

first_imgVirtual Reality has made its appearance in football.  According to an article in the Indianapolis Star written by John Marshall of the Associated Press, virtual reality is being used as a form of preparing players for game situations.  With the use of the 360 degree pictures, any football player can put himself in a real football play.  He then has to react to the situation that presents itself.Colleges have adapted this electronic method as a way of evaluating potential recruits to their college program.  It is also a way to present the college environment to these prospects without bringing them on campus.  This, as I know, is called an unofficial “visit”.  As far as the college program is concerned, it lowers costs and expands the area a college can recruit.It won’t be long until the whole process of recruiting and reviewing scouting reports will become a computerized phenomenon rather than the real-life experience.  Football has joined Star Wars.last_img
