Super Bowl Tech

Article from Business Week:

This article goes into great length about what is involved and how the refs prepare for a coin toss. What history the company has that makes the coins, etc. What I’d like to talk about is how much technology is on the sidelines now in an NFL game. Each team is given a fleet of Microsoft’s tablets named the Microsoft Surface Pro 4. Like never before, coaches, players, and guys upstairs can all collaborate in real time with a level of precision and productivity that has never been seen. If the quarterback needs a visual, the quarterback coach can draw on top of film that happened from the pervious drive. The running back ran the wrong route? With the Surface pen, the running back coach can easily draw the correct route within seconds for the running back to see. This is achieved with better wireless technology, better hardware (CPU, RAM, LCD), and innovation in the tablet industries.
