Un robot pour découvrir en temps réel les coulisses du stade de Nice | Robolution Capital | Scoop.it
Entrer dans les vestiaires, déambuler dans les travées d'un stade ou encore fouler la pelouse sont des privilèges rarement offerts aux supporters de football. C'est pourtant ce que propose le club de l'OGC Nice : en partenariat avec l'agence Sportfive (spécialiste de la gestion des droits audiovisuels sportifs) et grâce au robot Inside Bot de l'entreprise française Awabot, un fan des Aiglons a pu visiter les coulisses de l'Allianz Riviera. Pilotable en temps réel à distance et équipé d'un écran et d'une caméra, ce robot de télé-présence a notamment déjà été utilisé au salon Laval Virtual cette année . Un concours sera prochainement lancé sur la page Facebook du stade de Nice pour déterminer qui seront les prochains chanceux à réaliser cette visite immersive.
