Intel is determined to make 360-degree replays a staple of the sporting world. The chip designer has announced that it's bringing 3D capture technology to Major League Baseball games, starting with the All-Star Week events at San Diego's Petco Park (the All-Star Futures Game, the Home Run Derby and the All-Star Game) between July 10th and July 12th. Its technology will string 28 cameras around the field to show plays from nearly any angle. In short, there shouldn't be any doubt whether or not that runner is safe -- you'll almost always have a good view.

There's no mention of whether or not the replays will reach other stadiums, so don't expect to see it with every game. However, the rollout shows that 3D replays aren't limited to certain sports -- it's just a matter of having enough cameras and the right technology.
