Hey Sports Tech Fans,
So I did a live stream version of Sports Tech Live today as an experiment.
The videos I have done have been a one shot take anyway so I thought doing it live might be the best way forward!
It is fascinating to see what is possible with live streaming and it is something I am very passionate about so, expect to see this done again in the future and hopefully it will improve month on month.
