The Japanese are always ahead of the game when it comes to technoglogy, so it’s no surprise the country is promising 3D holographic broadcasts for the 2022 World Cup soccer tournament. The Star Wars-esque technology is apparently feasible through 200 3D HD cameras capturing footage.

This is cool in itself, but the best part of the whole scheme? The power will supposedly come from the crowds cheering and foot stomping. The 3D holographic broadcasts are all in preliminary stages of course, but it's sure to be a crowd pleaser. Stats for Sports Game Holograms Trending: Older & Chilly
