By 2025, the fantasy sports industry will be worth $26.4 billion. Today, it’s already changed how fans interact with all major sports.

Countless apps track stats and pit players against one another in a variety of competitive formats. As a result, it’s common for viewers to constantly refer to their phone when watching the game at home or live at the stadium. Additionally, the phone is leaned on to provide updates when no TV is available.

Vuzix’s Role in the Augmented Reality Era

When a goal is scored, the impact on the user’s fantasy team would display. A +2 or +3 graphic would hover above your player’s head when they sink a basket.

Smart glasses are set to revolutionize the way we interact with live sporting events, our favorite teams, and players.

Indeed, Vuzix embraces this inevitable change. Already Vuzix Blade Smart Glasses are changing how we work.

As the digital era moves forward, fantasy sports AR is set to improve how we watch the Super Bowl, or the next FIFA World Cup.

As the digital age continues to prove, it’s a matter of when - not if.
