TINKERING IN THE TRUCK -- FOX TECHIES WORK ON PUCK
Published March 28, 1996
In preparation for Sunday's re-launch of the FoxTrax computer-enhanced puck in Detroit, about a dozen Fox technicians used Wednesday's Red Wings-Sabres game to fine-tune the look of the new technology. Mike O'Hara reports, while Fox officials would make no comment, they indicated (as previously reported) the puck's blue dot will be replaced by a smaller white dot. Stan Honey, who helped develop the system: "We can make it look any way we want it to look." Fox officials say fans will be able to keep pucks shot into the stands and that the puck costs "far below" the reported $400 figure (DETROIT NEWS, 3/28).
