A mixed-reality panther was set on the loose on Sunday before an NFL game between the Carolina Panthers and the New York Jets. Roaming around the Bank Stadium of America, crowds were enthralled by technology’s hungered brilliance.
If you didn’t know that it was a real-life showcasing, you might have confused the visuals for 2007 CGI as user @_brian_2 did in his top liked to comment on Sky Sports Instagram page.
Now, as sublime as the giant panther may be, it’s also a cue for some innovative information in a country that prides itself on its animals.
Imagine if South Africa had the virtual roar of a glorified lion echo through the stadium of a rugby match, or the tender trumpeting of a proud elephant romping around as the star of a sporting event?
We can dare to dream.
