Through EON Sports’ proprietary technology, Penn Staters can view dynamic content via their iOS or Android based smartphone. LionVision VR will provide fans a behind-the-scenes views of practice, pre and post game locker room coaches’ talks and a wide array of iconic Penn State experiences, while immersed inside a customized virtual reality environment. LionVision VR sales will launch on August 25.
Penn State fans and alumni can purchase a year’s subscription and will receive a Nittany Lions branded Dodocase VR headset if they sign up by Oct. 3.
“Practice footage, scrimmages, huddles, and interviews from all 31 teams, are just a few examples of content to be presented on LionVision VR,” per the release.
