Spectator sports have lost ground to virtual eSports, but new Live Action Video Sports are helping reality make a comeback. Rooted in the physical world, these sports use live streaming video to enable real-time control of real objects. First-person view (FPV) drone racing puts pilots and fans on board for high-speed aerial maneuvers, and a new fan-run football league streams video from the field to fans everywhere who call all the plays. What new sports will live action video inspire next?
