There's no question that the most boring part of any football game is waiting for the referees to respond to a coach's challenge. But the agony of the endless replay is going to ease up at least a little bit this season, with NBC's Matrix-style 360-degree replays giving us plenty of space-aged eye candy to fill the time.
The breakthrough in replay technology will be enabled by the placement of a whopping 24 cameras in each end zone, allowing every possible play perspective to be stitched together into one comprehensive view that would have really blown your mind back in 1999.
The tech will go into effect starting September 8th for the Cowboys-Giants game. There's no word yet on if referees will forego the traditional coin toss for a round of red pill/blue pill. [The Wrap]
