In 2013, Tokyo was chosen to host the 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games. The preparations for the games have already begun, but the official sponsor of the 2020 Tokyo Summer Olympics, the Japanese telecommunications company NTT, is hoping to bring an added dimension to the competition, quite literally.

The NTT is working on a new system called “Kirari! For Arena,” Reuters reported today. The aim is to have the system up and running until the 2020 Summer Games. The NTT’s current technology requires sensors to be attached to an athlete’s body, but “Kirari! For Arena” will work on an entirely different principle.

“Kirari! For Arena” uses multiple cameras to track an athlete’s movements. The images that these cameras capture are transferred, in real time, to devices which show 3D hologram figures in different locations. The technology was demonstrated today during the NTT’s exhibition in Tokyo, Japan.
