The NFL is embracing ball technology. America’s league is reportedly in talks with Cairo Technologies about the possibility of implanting a microchip into official NFL game balls.

But what fun would the NFL be without controversies and irate fans? Count me in as a “no” on ball implants. However, I’m still strongly in favor of providing each referee with a Segway. [via Wired]
