Drone racing- the next big sport?
Drone racing began as an amateur sport in Australia in late 2014. Racing drones are now fitted with front cameras that capture footage as they fly through obstacle courses. Each individual player monitors their drone's performance through VR goggles with FPV (first person view) while trying to get the fastest time and the most accurate movements. Fans can have their own FPV goggles and have a view of what the pilot is seeing. https://www.fastcodesign.com/3059129/making-it/the-quest-to-make-drone-racing-americas-next-big-sport
