Refs will wear GoPros for Fox’s Big Ten championship broadcast

During this weekend’s Big Ten football championship game, Fox Sports will offer fans a different kind of on-field views during its coverage of the match-up. When Wisconsin and Penn State take the field Saturday, December 3rd, referees will be wearing hats equipped with GoPros to give fans another perspective of the action on the gridiron. The network says it worked alongside GoPro and Big Ten officials on a hat that would capture footage it could use immediately during its broadcast.

Fox Sports Lab successfully tested the system during last week’s Wisconsin vs. Minnesota game and plans to share clips via social media this weekend. That means if you can’t watch live, you should still be able to find some snippets of the action afterwards. What’s more, there will be a dedicated stream of Hat Cam footage on Fox Sports Go which could make for a rather interesting multi-screen setup if you can wrangle more than one display. Of course, you’ll need a cable subscription to take advantage of what that streaming app offers.

These referee cameras join drones and VR as tools in Fox’s arsenal to bring viewers different perspectives on sporting events throughout the year. For a look at what you can expect this weekend, you can watch a clip from the referee camera test run right here.

Innovation happens when people come together. Nowhere is that more obvious than in our bustling cities around the world. And as resident numbers continue to climb, some of the most populated locations across the globe are faced with the opportunity to not only shape the future — but to design it.

According to a 2014 United Nations report, 54 percent of the world's population resides in urban areas; by 2050 that number is expected to rise to 66 percent. That’s a lot of people.

An increase in population can lead to a whole slew of transportation issues — many of which you probably experience regularly. From congestion on the roads and inefficient traffic patterns to unreliable public transportation and rising commute times, city dwellers know how painful it can be when systems start to fail.
