Beat it Skycam, you’re old news

The latest million dollar dinosaur

As if men don’t sit on the couch and stare at the idiot box for enough hours in a week already, 360 Replays has created some new technology that could permanently change the way the male population across the planet wastes their free time.

The good folks at 360 Replays have just announced the completion of 3D sports replay system that consists of 40 different cameras and can be used to capture and instantly replay video from almost any angle. The system is know as VantEDGE technology that works in the same fashion that your favorite NFL video game will allow you to rotate the camera around the ball carrier while zooming in and out at the same time. The only thing missing from your sports watching experience now is the recliner with a built in fridge.

If that’s not cool enough for you then maybe its practical applications will win you over. How does the sound of eliminating every stupid referee’s decision during an NFL challenge hit you? Or no longer having to scream at the television because the refs couldn’t see that the ball was clearly out of his hands before the buzzer sounded. Well, those days are over because officials will now have the technology to view any play from any angle and eliminate any forced personal judgments.

We see this as a major milestone in bringing together the current need for more accurate video playbacks in many sports, as well as a new way for spectators to view the sport,” said Dean Esler, chief technology officer at 360 Replays. “By combining the ability to record enormous amounts of video with 3D data processing, we are able to provide views from almost any angle which is both entertaining to the viewer, and important to game officials.

On behalf of sports fans across the globe; thank you 360 Replays. Thank you.
