Frosty Piss writes: The NFL announced this week that it will be using RFID tracking chips on players during select games in the 2014 season to generate precise positioning data on each player on every play. The data is instantly analyzed by the NFL’s MotionWorks graphics system, which then generates statistics for every play. The data can also be instantly incorporated into the visual elements of the TV broadcast within the broadcast’s standard two-second delay.
