The new Indianapolis Colts stadium will feature state-of-the-art technology that fans can appreciate.

Credit cards will be accepted at food stands, and replays will be shown on bigger and better video boards.

The stadium is estimated to cost between $695 million and $720 million and is scheduled to open in August 2008. The building is being wired with miles of fiber optics and other infrastructure that could allow the city and Colts add new technology in the future.

Fans may enjoy two new video boards at the stadium. They will be 96 feet wide and 27 feet high -- that's more than three times the size of ones in the RCA Dome.

The stadium will also feature more than 1,000 flat-screen TVs and monitors in concourses and suites so that fans can see the action on the field no matter where they are.
