Japan proposes holographic World Cup 2022

Japanese officials have made a six million dollar bid for the 22nd edition of the World Cup (2022) that proposes the actual tournament be broadcast all across the world via real-time holographic technology.

The initiative, known as Universal Fan Fest, will allow some 360 million people from 208 countries to watch a live 3-D feed of the games.

Though it sounds quite far-fetched for the early 21st century, the idea is to simultaneously capture all World Cup action via 200 high-definition cameras placed in a 360-degree circle around the stadium—and then transmit it in real-time to approximately 400 stadiums all across the world.

This means you would potentially be able to watch each match live right from your local, hometown stadium.
