Want to imagine yourself suited up as a part of your favorite team’s roster? An installation will film your image and display it on a screen in front of you. Afterwards, select your team of choice to have your live image rock that team’s uniform. Now strike a pose!
A digital whiteboard will grant those who live to coach from the couch a chance to prove they’ve got the know-how to win the game. Watch as the moves drawn out in X’s and O’s play out on the computerized match. If you start doubting the strategies in your playbook, don’t worry. A digital coach will chime in with tips to beat the opponent and special moves to try.
The space will feature other interactive displays with multimedia touches, artifacts and a 4D cinematic experience offering up exclusive content from NFL Films.
