Test Drive a Skybox

A couple weeks ago, I blogged about a gadget called Skybox, which would give people at sporting events access to all kinds of data, ranging from player stats to concession prices to instant replays. Tim Hayden of Vivid Sky, the company behind Skybox, has been kind enough to invite readers of this blog to play around with a demo. I can’t say that Skybox will bring me back to the ballparks and stadiums anytime soon (I gave up going to live ballgames a while ago: too tiresome, noisy, expensive — and it’s simply more fun to watch on TV) but I can certainly see the appeal, especially the instant replays and instant stats. And I can envision all kinds of non-sports applications: conferences, concerts, etc. Hayden will be eagerly watching for your comments here.
