You might have heard that Super Bowl XLIX* is a drone-free game.

What you might not realise is quite how drone free.

The drone restriction zone doesn't just apply in the stadium, or in the car park. Actually it applies for a zone 60 miles in diameter around the stadium.

Here are the other amazing tech facts relating to this weekend's matchup against the New England Minutemen and the Seattle Sea Dogs. For instance did you know that there will be just shy of 45,000 LED lights in the stadium? Well, now you do.

* In Roman Numerals the subtractive principle only applies when the subtrahend precedes a minuend no more than 10 times larger, hence Super Bowl XLIX and not Super Bowl IL. Glad you asked.
