+ - The Tech Behind Football's Yellow First Down Line->

jfruh writes "People who like watching American football on TV have come to take a great technological development for granted: they can see on TV a yellow line that indicates how far the offensive team needs to move the ball to get a first down. The line, which has been used on most football broadcasts for more than a decade, is actually something of a technical marvel, with a lot of work going into creating something that's not flashy or obtrusive but enhances the game-watching experience. Even those bored by sports can appreciate the science behind it."
