Being at the game or watching it at home. Cheering the second your team scores and high-fiving the fan next to you. Football is all about being in the moment.

To get fans immersed in the Super Bowl experience before The Big Game, Verizon has created the Verizon Power House: 15,000 square-feet of personal, interactive technology in New York City’s Bryant Park. The Verizon Power House allows visitors to virtually “Suit Up” in their favorite NFL team uniform, learn more about the NFL Mobile app, and try out LTE Multicast, a new way to experience content that leverages the 4G LTE network. The Media Tower area allows football enthusiasts to create a personalized timeline featuring iconic moments in technology, pop culture and NFL history.

There will also be a touch wall that showcases many of Verizon’s Powerful Answers stories; a giant LED screen visualizing Verizon’s 4G LTE network; a LTE Multicast Skybox, a 270-degree projection mapping room, transporting fans from their homes to their cars and finally to the stadium; a Wall of Fame with consumer-generated fan videos and images paired with NFL stars; and lockers for phone power charging.

The Verizon Power House will be open to the public from Jan. 29 through Feb. 2. It will be open from 1 p.m. to 11 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 29; 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. from Jan. 30 through Feb. 1; and 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Feb. 2.
