The advancement of technology occurs in all areas of life, and in football the inclusion of VAR was the first step to stay on that line. Although it is still a prototype and will not be used, at least for the moment, officially, the Bodycam was used for the first time over the course of the last weekend.
The premiere of this new technology adapted to sport took place in a friendly match between Milan and Germany’s Cologne, which ended in victory for the Italians. On that occasion, the company MindFly presented a body camera that uses artificial intelligence.
The main objective of the creators of this element is to eliminate the distance between the fan and the actions that take place inside the field of play. In that sense, the cameras captured the moment in which the German team scored the discount goal.
“Using MindFly in football brings the excitement of the pitch to the fans. Our lightweight AI vests are designed to maintain player performance and feel like they are wearing a GPS-enabled vest, and athletes forget they are wearing it after a few minutes,” explained Eran Tal, co-founder of the project.
