Tennis is just a starting point. This technology could soon allow visually impaired people around the world to better experience the joy of live sports.

Supporters didn’t get to see the Olympics in 2020, but they saw a basketball “bubble” with virtual fans and a Premier League with fake cheering. While the coronavirus has stalled and altered sports, a report on sports and climate from this summer warns: “Yet devastating as this has been, something even more problematic is waiting in the wings for the sporting circus.” That’s the climate crisis.
