Ahead of the Super Bowl this year, Microsoft and the NFL worked together on a project that envisioned the future of football.

Rather than simply being viewers of the action, it's imagined that fans will be able to take more control of how they choose to view content and interact with it. For instance, a concept video from the NFL and Microsoft explores ideas like multiple screens, surfaces and full immersion with mixed-reality experiences.

Some of the content that could be revealed by the Windows 10-powered HoloLens include player stats, 3D displays, scores and game-specific pop-ups. Beyond football, this kind of technology could transform everything from gaming to navigation. For those looking to make the most of this technology for a range of applications, the Microsoft HoloLens Development Edition is set to be available during the first quarter of 2016.
