3D: Now that’s cricket!

Richard McManus has a cool piece about Cricinfo’s live 3D coverage of the Tri-Series cricket matches between Australia, New Zealand and England. Cricinfo expects to move this out of beta testing shortly.

You can read it here. I agree with Richard that its a perfect illustration of the benefits of 3D on the Web. I think it would really shine if applied within a virtual world environment, together with social interaction functionality.

I still remember how excited we used to get back in the mid 90’s picking up real time cricket stats on the nascent Cricinfo….ah, the good old days.
