New tech tackles Super Bowl 52

By  | 

MINNEAPOLIS The countdown to kick-off is on. This year’s super bowl is lining up some supersized fanfare, starting with the NFL Experience, a fan favorite that was born in Minneapolis a quarter century ago.

"A lot of the critical pieces that we put together for this event were born here and we are bringing them back,” says Mary Pat Augenthaler, Vice President of NFL Events. “We like to think that they're better than ever before. We got so many things that are digital."

You can kick a field goal, throw a winning touch-down, practice your snaps or snap a picture with the Lombardi trophy.

On game day, a fleet of synchronized drones will dance across the stadium sky, in a carefully choreographed flight.

From the 50 yard line to the cheap seats, Bud Light is lighting up the stands with multi-color glowing cups.

Here’s how they work: using the bud light touchdown glass app, you pick your team and every time they score your cup joins the celebration.

Tens of millions of viewers will watch the Patriots and the Eagles battle in Super Bowl 52.

Kick-off is set for 5:30 p.m. CT on NBC.
