TOWSON, Md. - The Washington Wizards, Washington Capitals and Washington Mystics are beginning to incorporate 3D virtual reality technology into their practice regiments. FOX 5 was at Towson University Tuesday morning when the Wizards’ Garrett Temple used the tool for the first time.
"It’s something I’ve never experience before. Being able to see myself do something, but also be in the position to watch the ball go up – me making a shot – without having a ball in my hand," Temple said. "It’s something that you have to actually experience to understand."
The technology relies on a 360-degree camera to record game or practice action. The player then dons a headset that covers the eyes, allowing a first-person experience on the court.
