The Ravens may start seeing life-sized Steelers coming at them during training camp, and it’s not just in their heads.

A Towson startup is helping the Baltimore Ravens use mixed reality to train for the upcoming season’s competition, the Baltimore Sun reports.

Mixed River is working on a platform that allows the Ravens to view holograms of their competitors as they line up on the field using the Microsoft HoloLens. Additional equipment allows the team to simulate plays on monitors so they can learn without having to line up on the field. The firm signed a one-year deal with the Ravens, according to the Sun.

Over the last couple of years, Microsoft has been showing off how the HoloLens can change the game for fans watching from home. Bringing mixed reality to the players who are training shows a way that tech can help teams get a competitive edge.
