Ever feel like the broadcasts for running meets lack a few bells and whistles that you may notice during other sporting events? If so, Tokyo 2020 is hoping to change that--and revamp the viewer experience with artificial technology innovations. On Wednesday, Intel announced a new partnership with International Olympic Committee (IOC) and the Tokyo Organizing Committee of the Olympic Games, and as part of it, also revealed some of the tech they will have at the event to offer broadcasters in Tokyo next July. As a result, track and field fans should be in for a very different viewing experience than they are used to. For starters, the tech giant is debuting what they call 3D Athlete Tracking (3DAT).
