Technology is being embraced in the most surprising ways -- the latest involving the Dallas Cowboys and their football training strategy. The American sports franchise has partnered up with StriVR Labs in a two year deal that will see their quarterbacks training with virtual reality headsets. Although this may seem strange at first, this advanced football training is anything but.

A clever implementation of virtual reality, Fast Company writes, "The goal is to help players develop decision-making skills without needing the whole team to be available for practice on the field." Through such supplementary football training drills, players will be able to watch replays of maneuvers, seen from the quarterback's perspective. Although not interactive, players can turn their heads to look in different directions each time they view the replay.
