Golden Nuggets: Team Goes Virtual

Tuesday, July 21st, 2015 edition of the Golden Nuggets, a daily compilation of San Francisco 49ers links from the Internet

Ed Szczepanski-USA TODAY Sports

The Niners became the 2nd team in the NFL to incorporate virtual reality technology into their training routine. They signed an agreement with a tech company based out of Palo Alto today to use the company's tech. The technology allows players the ability to watch video based on position using a device that looks like a scuba mask. They will be able to watch plays develop as if they were on the field using this technology.

It was only a matter of time that this would happen. Technology is everywhere in the game and teams are always looking for a way to get an advantage. The Niners, in particular, were always going to be one of the 1st teams to do this being so close to the tech mecca of the world.

It will be interesting to see how the players react to using this technology and see if they benefit from it. Being able to watch plays over and over as well as having live practice can only help the players get better.
