Photo: Clemson Installs Tiny Cameras Into Quarterback Helmets
Could football fans eventually have the option to watch the game as one of the players instead of from the sidelines? If what we’re seeing from Clemson is any indication, it’s an innovation coming sooner rather than later.
Friday, the Tigers Instagram account tweeted out a photo of Clemson’s quarterback helmets, which have Schutt Sports cameras installed right above the top bar of the facemask. The assumption here is that they’ll use the footage to help their signal-callers make better decisions on the field.
It was just a few weeks back that we saw how Stanford utilizes robots to help coach David Shaw attend team meetings. Staying on top of the latest technology is going to be paramount for programs to continue competing in the future.
