Using a VR headset and software, quarterbacks will be able to see live-action 3D video replays of each play - from their own perspective - and can look in any direction as they analyze their decision making. In an ideal scenario, this will give Tony Romo and the team's backup quarterbacks the chance to learn and adapt without actually being on the field.

 

STRIVR Labs has reportedly reached agreements with several major NCAA football teams to help them as well - as VR finds a realistic and functional use in sports. Looking ahead, its possible STRIVR Labs will sign with other teams interested in embracing VR technology.
