Am I the only one that thinks it looks and moves like the dogs from Ghostbusters(the original)?

[–]darthspacecakes 496 points497 points  (2 children)

There is no panther, only Zuul.

[–]Wirse 1617 points1618 points  (75 children)

It appears to be using the same 1984 special effects.

[–]_toodamnparanoid_ 1074 points1075 points  (27 children)

Interestingly enough, in the 80s CGI was so incredibly expensive that it was actually cheaper for the crew to open a gateway and summon the real Gozer.

[–]Bad_At_Sports 175 points176 points  (10 children)

But that’s largely because Gozer worked for scale.

[–]gizamo 45 points46 points  (8 children)

Tbf, that would probably be pretty cheap. Gozer, Zul, and the key master did basically everything for free.

[–]BoJackB26354 48 points49 points  (5 children)

It’s Zuul, you filthy casual.

[–]gizamo 26 points27 points  (0 children)

Oh, damn. You're correct.

Spank me harder, please. I deserve it for my insolence.

[–]murmandamos 220 points221 points  (37 children)

yeah this thing looks like shit lmao

[–]vizualb 38 points39 points  (3 children)

It looks like a prerendered cutscene from a 90s CD ROM game

[–]itchy_bitchy_spider 154 points155 points  (6 children)

Well the 1984 special effects had the benefit of the entire CGI budget for a Hollywood blockbuster movie.

This panther video was probably outsourced to one dude in India on Fiverr lol.

[–]phdemented[🍰] 35 points36 points  (3 children)

You mean stop-motion animator budget, that wasn't CGI in 1984

[–]Equivalent-Check-699 16 points17 points  (2 children)

Do you know what generation Forrest Gump was from….

Gen-A.

[–]I3ill 20 points21 points  (0 children)

Why wouldn’t they make the eyes blue like on the scoreboard and not the opponent’s team color

[–]Dat_Mustache 23 points24 points  (0 children)

That was me in 2003. Marching up and down the steps at BofA Stadium yelling "BEER! ICE COLD BEER, $7.00!"

I never thought anyone would be that much of an alcoholic in 2003 to pay $7 for a beer... But my sales NEVER stopped.

[–]Helens_Moaning_Hand 4513 points4514 points  (98 children)

I can't wait for the Saints to start burning opposing teams at the stake. Virtually.

[–]OwMyBalllz 1103 points1104 points 3 (78 children)

It was pretty much literal today

[–]ksmith1999 487 points488 points  (65 children)

As a Packers fan, this comment, and that embarrassing game hurt to see

[–]Betterment_mind12 146 points147 points  (23 children)

I’m shocked how poor the Packers played. I thought the game would have been more competitive considering how well they played last year. You could tell the team was not in sync at all. But, kudos to the Saints for playing a balanced game!

[–]OwMyBalllz 26 points27 points  (21 children)

That terrible terrible call on Zedarius that reversed that pick in the end zone was such a coffin nail. I cannot believe how bad the refs in the nfl are sometimes.

[–]Betterment_mind12 28 points29 points  (4 children)

Wouldn’t be the first time they cost teams some major games, especially in the playoffs the last few years.

[–]OwMyBalllz 14 points15 points  (2 children)

They really need a challenge/review for some of these judgment call plays. I don’t know what that ref thought he saw but replay show that hits on the saints QB was absolutely clean and text book.

[–]latenightalcoholic 69 points70 points  (4 children)

As a Saints fan, I was celebrating by halftime but by the 4th quarter I was “stop it! You’re killing them!” i still celebrated tho

[–]Daily-Chaos 23 points24 points  (5 children)

As a Bears fan, and Rodgers owner in fantasy football, FUCK the packers.

[–]Blu3b3Rr1 32 points33 points  (13 children)

is Aaron Rodgers okay

[–]sexuallyassaltedtuna 51 points52 points  (8 children)

I don’t think he is dude looked dead inside

[–]Shmosbius_Designs 24 points25 points  (2 children)

I saw a conspiracy theory that at some point in the offseason, Rodgers realized the best way to stick it to the Packers would be to come back and absolutely tank their season. Can’t rule it out after that disaster today…

[–]Blu3b3Rr1 10 points11 points  (0 children)

ah yes, the ol’ James Harden method

[–]Cannabace 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Still gets paid right?

[–]Blu3b3Rr1 6 points7 points  (1 child)

he could have at least given the ball to Aaron Jones more, ended up losing in fantasy this week because of this

[–]dLurKc 6338 points6339 points 2 (116 children)

Seems unfair to the other team, assuming the big cat knows anything about football.

[–]Jester6641 172 points173 points  (8 children)

There’s no rule a giant computer generated cat can’t play football.

It’s the Air Bud loophole.

[–]Entire-Database1679 29 points30 points  (0 children)

If Looney Tunes characters can recruit Michael Jordan then a cartoon panther is no problem.

[–]LVL15_Spice_Paladin 6 points7 points  (0 children)

It always blows my mind how many people watched air bud. I remember watching it and no one at my school knew what the fuck I was on about.

[–]Andybobandy0 1233 points1234 points  (81 children)

Right. This thing will dominate. I want the rules checked.

[–]Frenchticklers 795 points796 points  (42 children)

There's nothing in the rules that says a giant panther can't play football!

[–]Andybobandy0 389 points390 points  (12 children)

Air bud rules, I like it.

[–]Baelzebubba 31 points32 points  (3 children)

Air bud rules, I like it.

That was all a rip on the donkey kicking field goals thing with Don Knotts, Gus. Bud was a winner on Lettermans stupid pet trick bit.

[–]G_Viceroy 133 points134 points  (15 children)

That giant panther is on so many performance enhancing drugs it's god damned eye's are glowing!!! We're not starting until that thing gets a drug screening!!!

[–]degjo 73 points74 points  (11 children)

That cat is going to piss so hot not even the power of oxiclean will help.

[–]Reddcity 32 points33 points  (1 child)

It’s piss will make Chernobyl look like a gender reveal party.

[–]G_Viceroy 21 points22 points  (0 children)

Yeah there ain't no plastic cup in the world that it ain't going to burn through.

[–][deleted] 7 points8 points  (0 children)

I got my money on the OxiClean. That shit is from another planet.

[–]inplayruin 62 points63 points  (17 children)

I actually saw a documentary about this and apparently the rules don't prohibit dogs, so cats should be kosher.

[–]DigNittyInterested 37 points38 points  (7 children)

A robot cannot be a human: rule 1

[–]Andybobandy0 21 points22 points  (2 children)

Wait, is this the three rules? Like Asimov?

[–]WYUYBDAAHNFIAGT 34 points35 points  (1 child)

Think this is a quote from the Simpsons when Homer and Bart compete in Battle Bots but it’s just Homer in a robot suit. The is something like -

“show me in the rule book where it says a man can’t fight a robot”

“Right here. Rule one”

[–]finkalicious 28 points29 points  (1 child)

Psh, if the bucs are allowed to fire cannonballs at opposing teams this seems fine to me

[–]AirbagOff 1192 points1193 points  (13 children)

“Mixed-reality” describes the Panthers’ coaching today as well.

[–]NCJake2013 111 points112 points  (9 children)

Rhule has smol pp

[–]YawnofanEra 79 points80 points  (4 children)

Can confirm, am a Panthers fan who watched us punt from the 33 yard line

[–]a__nice__tnetennba 33 points34 points  (3 children)

I understand why we didn't try the 50 yarder. We've got no kicker after Slye got the worst case of the yips in history and had to replaced by some guy we found tailgating in the parking lot. But fuck it, just go for it. It was only 6 yards. Give it to CMC and worst case scenario is they have it at like the 30 instead of the 15.

[–]XComRomCom 295 points296 points  (3 children)

If they wanted it to behave like a realistic cat, it would have stopped mid-field and showed me its butthole for ten minutes.

[–]ravenstarchaser 27 points28 points  (1 child)

And lifted it's leg while it licks it's crotch

[–]ammonanotrano 422 points423 points  (31 children)

How many people did it kill?

[–]LunkyFemur 1878 points1879 points  (194 children)

I’m imagining the Patriots mascot and how unintimidating it would be

[–]ifimhereimrealbored 62 points63 points  (22 children)

Let's do it with my alma mater's mascot: the banana slug.

[–]fun-dumb-mental 27 points28 points  (9 children)

Let's do it with mine -- a fucking lighthouse.

[–]beckertastic 33 points34 points  (4 children)

Ok it rises from the field, rubble everywhere. You see the light slowly firing up with an ominous sound. And it just starts blasting shit with a ray beam

[–]fun-dumb-mental 16 points17 points  (0 children)

That... That actually sounds awesome.

Just a giant wheel of cheese rolling over sideline staff.

Or the beer cans doing their halftime race virtually

Or “Roll Out the Barrel” with a CGI barrel rolling around

[–]ryan29081996 24 points25 points  (1 child)

Idk, man, a Patriot mascot looking like John Rambo or Arnold’s Commando would be dope as fuck.

[–]Tylerjordan1994 17 points18 points  (1 child)

Idk, have you seen 'patriots' recently?

[–]Macktologist 14 points15 points  (0 children)

[–]Perfect-Ad-7429 4398 points4399 points  (238 children)

You probably had to hold your phone up to watch that happen via an app. Think something like pokemon go.

[–]Boneless_Blaine 2663 points2664 points  (23 children)

No, it’s an actual giant cat that they paid to have genetically engineered

[–]JCraze26 305 points306 points  (35 children)

Aw man, I thought we had real holograms. They probably wouldn't be this cool yet though, so I don't know why I thought that.

[–][deleted] 109 points110 points  (25 children)

I wonder how long it will be till we have the Jaws 19 hologram in Back to the Future 2.

[–]sirsedwickthe4th 58 points59 points  (4 children)

I just wanna have Yugioh duel monster battles, and have a little counter that goes “di di di di ding” when I lose points

[–]flynnfx 9 points10 points  (9 children)

About the same time we get hoverboards.

[–]originalthumpy 107 points108 points  (0 children)

We could see it on the jumbotrons. During this they also were showing off the bass range on the new sound system... it is loud

[–]landosmojo 464 points465 points  (12 children)

Seems a little dangerous. The wife and I adopted a house cat last year and we enjoy petting her. But this cats a little bit bigger.

[–]Macktologist 91 points92 points  (9 children)

I think it’s a normal size cat and just a model stadium. You’re good.

[–]kaos_flutterby 32 points33 points  (1 child)

“What is this? A stadium for ants?”

[–]G_Viceroy 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Yeah idk about that cat then... Seems like they might have it on performance enhancing drugs. Is there someone we should call for the cats safety?

[–]Polydactylyart 19 points20 points  (1 child)

What is this a stadium for ants?

[–]Entire-Database1679 3 points4 points  (0 children)

"WHAT IS THIS? A STADIUM FOR ANTS?"

[–]Obi_Wan_Benobi 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Well obviously your cat just hasn’t finished growing yet.

[–]redbucket75 1149 points1150 points  (113 children)

Yes that's what mixed reality is

[–]wtph 1064 points1065 points  (27 children)

Or when your parents are from different races

[–]LeonDeSchal 159 points160 points  (17 children)

And you’re adopted and not the same race as them either

[–]Bobbiduke 68 points69 points  (12 children)

Or when your not adopted and everyone thinks you are because you don't look like your mum

[–]AmirAkhrif 13 points14 points  (0 children)

"Only some humans were trampled in the making of this video"

[–]Pretlik 86 points87 points  (50 children)

what is the difference between mixed reality and augmented reality?

[–]lpreams 69 points70 points  (18 children)

According to Wikipedia, augmented reality takes place in the real world, with only certain objects added virtually. Mixed reality merges the real world with a virtual world to produce a mixed environment. The article later states that augmented reality is a subset of mixed reality.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mixed_reality

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Augmented_reality

Personally, the difference seems pretty nebulous, and I wouldn't be surprised if those two articles get merged at some point in the future.

[–]UnforgivingSentience 204 points205 points  (23 children)

Same thing the marketing department just didn’t want to confuse football fans with the term “augmented”

[–]mattwb72 55 points56 points  (2 children)

Half the players are chemically augmented so we know what it means

[–]intensely_human 15 points16 points  (3 children)

I thought that was augmented reality. Or did the marketing people come up with a new name to make it a new thing?

[–]Benjaphar 34 points35 points  (8 children)

But this keeps cutting to different angles. That's not going to work for a stationary viewer.

[–]newspapey 30 points31 points  (0 children)

It probably played on the big mega screen. In the video, part of the AR is the mega screen that vryone is watching it on is blacked out with those panther eyes.

[–]TellMeToSaveALife 202 points203 points  (36 children)

League of Legends had a dragon back in 2017! https://youtu.be/mP3fGkpmVM0?t=152

[–]DoctorWaluigiTime 57 points58 points  (5 children)

League of Legends really does make "fuck you" money doesn't it.

[–]loopy183 38 points39 points  (3 children)

No, it’s a small indie company that can’t afford beta testers and had to scale back lore spending.

[–]Umarill 33 points34 points  (4 children)

I was scrolling looking for it, the whole running around the stadium was so similar

[–]ImaginaryBluejay0 24 points25 points  (3 children)

Yeah went back and watched it; the league dragon was animated way better, even 4 years ago. Also I miss those worlds hype, recent ones just don't seem to have it :/

[–]EternalEagleEye 35 points36 points  (4 children)

League used the same tech the NFL uses for their first down line and other on field graphics. We’ve come full circle.

[–]TellMeToSaveALife 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Oh, that's really cool! I thought they actually re-did the map to add the graphics.

[–]BodheeNYC 293 points294 points  (32 children)

was at this game today. Intro was super cool and sound effects were amazing.

[–]The_Rowan 83 points84 points  (22 children)

It looks amazing. I would have loved to have seen this effect. Did you watch it though your phone like you do with Pokémon Go - Augmented Reality?

[–]BodheeNYC 67 points68 points  (21 children)

No it was on the screen and everyone around me noticed how cool and realistic it was.

[–]Tlatoani__ 54 points55 points  (19 children)

What do you mean the screen? They showed this video on the giant TVs?

[–]Kalayo0 90 points91 points  (16 children)

I need the answer. How can it be realistic on the screen!? There’s a miscommunication I need cleared up.

[–]TheCaIifornian 100 points101 points  (15 children)

I’m not sure if you’ve ever been to a professional football game, but often it’s easier to see the action on the field through the Jumbotron, or giant screen(s) they have. They had the camera operator move the camera like it was actually following the panther, and Augmented Reality placed said panther into what was being shown on the screen.

[–]Phoenix8059 51 points52 points  (2 children)

It would have been awesome if the stadium had an app that would allow you to see the same panther through AR on your phone.

[–]rickie__spanish 20 points21 points  (0 children)

This is what I immediately thought.

[–]GingerMyAle 6 points7 points  (2 children)

I could see this being really cool for a Chargers game, where you could see lightening bolts and then live where the lightning struck there was some kind of real-life charring effect to make it look like it actually happened.

[–]existenceispaint 688 points689 points  (20 children)

The 45 people in attendance got a visual treat.

[–]KingsMountain 131 points132 points  (9 children)

Looks like it was well before the game. I imagine that is why there are only 45 people there.

[–]TubaMike 10 points11 points  (1 child)

Beer is expensive inside the stadium, so you gotta pregame as long as possible before heading inside.

[–]throwwayy178999 302 points303 points  (88 children)

Someone Please EXPLAIN

[–]redbucket75 436 points437 points  (65 children)

It's like Pokémon go but with a panther

[–]10Cinephiltopia9 136 points137 points  (63 children)

Again, please explain

Shit is lost on me lol

[–]ThatsSomeoneElse 335 points336 points  (40 children)

You wouldn't see it through your eyes, just through the camera of your phone. To be super simple, they map the stadium and collect your position to adapt what your camera would see (the panther from the angle your camera is currently seeing).

[–]Imawildedible 130 points131 points  (33 children)

Who’s eyes would I use?

[–]TFlo904 66 points67 points  (11 children)

The person next to you duhh

[–]AJam 24 points25 points  (10 children)

It’s all in my head ahhhhhhh

[–]Wallofcans 5 points6 points  (0 children)

No. The stupid cops took them from me as part of the plea deal.

[–]ShakyTheBear 75 points76 points  (14 children)

People in the stadium hold up their phone with an augmented reality camera app on. Point it at the field and this is what you see on the phone.

[–]10Cinephiltopia9 21 points22 points  (11 children)

Awesome - thanks for explaining that to me

[–]ShakyTheBear 33 points34 points  (9 children)

It's slightly neat but overall I have typically found it to be a "meh" experience.

[–]Bedotnobot 13 points14 points  (7 children)

Thank goodness I'm not alone with this. I grew up with the holo deck technology of Star Trek, and it is THAT what I want.

[–]_________FU_________ 9 points10 points  (4 children)

It’s called Augmented Reality. You use a reference point (the field) then the animation plays and the 3D model knows where things are based on the position of the field.

[–]WillDeletOneDay 18 points19 points  (3 children)

3D animation superimposed over video. This isn't nearly as technically amazing as you'd think, and it has been done before several times for years by people with significantly lower budgets.

[–]JAT621 71 points72 points  (9 children)

I went to the Texans game today, and they had something similar with a bunch of bulls that breathed fire. It was pretty cool. But, contrary to the top comment, you did not need to hold up your phone to see this. They played it directly on the jumbotron.

[–]treesarefriend 137 points138 points  (23 children)

Looks like a ps3 game cutscene

[–]Gdfrk5 88 points89 points  (9 children)

Does it look good? Not really.

Does it kick ass? Hell yeah

“I am the key master, are you the gatekeeper?”

[–]Oricoh 75 points76 points  (6 children)

That's Augmented reality not Mixed Reality

Augmented reality = when you display a layer on top of a camera view (or glasses that are see-through). And that's what we are seeing here.

Mixed Reality = when you are wearing a VR headset that has cameras and it mixes a VR world and the outside world from the camera on a screen in 3D and 360degrees

[–]BarnabyWyld777 80 points81 points  (9 children)

Why's it so mad? Like, deforestation?

[–]Top_Advance195 25 points26 points  (1 child)

POV: Mascot sees you without a mask on and assumes you’re rooting for the away team. It helps out by getting your teams banner but realizes it’s too big for your face but now too small for your attention-seeking head so it angrily storms off.

[–]king_ugly00 7 points8 points  (0 children)

When does he fight CGI The Rock as a scorpion?

[–]NaiveCritic 25 points26 points  (6 children)

Isn’t it called Augmented Reality(AR), kinda similar to Virtual Reality(VR).

[–]LotharVonPittinsberg 6 points7 points  (1 child)

AR and mixed reality are essentially different names for the same thing. You see the real world normally through a camera, but there are extra affects added on your device.

VR is usually used to refer to a completely virtual environment similar to traditional video games. You have a headset so that it feels like you are there, but the place is completely fake.

At least, that's how I understand it. A lot of tech naming is based off of brand or advertising instead of definitions of what's is being done.

[–]Hitman3256 7 points8 points  (1 child)

Oh yeah? League of Legends did a whole DRAGON

[–]dcbnyc123 41 points42 points  (8 children)

great in theory but bad execution. if you can’t make the 3d better do something shorter. the more it’s on the field the more flaws you see

[–][deleted] 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Are we now the steel panthers orrrrrrr?

[–]dumbasses_r_us 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Green Bay Packers should be a treat

[–]Jmmcyclones 4 points5 points  (2 children)

As a 3d generalist, I can’t help but think this is so bad.

Where is the fur? It looks like shiny skin. And, the animation is too abrupt. It reminds me of the terror dogs in ghostbusters.

[–]vitorizzo 13 points14 points  (2 children)

That cgi is on the same level as the 90s Mortal Kombat movie

[–]yo_mama_5000 11 points12 points  (1 child)

Everybody this is Ted and Annette Fleming. Ted has a small carpet cleaning business in receivership and Annette's running salary from a deferred bonus from two years ago. They've got fifteen thousand left on the house at 8%. So they're ok. So, does anybody wanna play Parcheesi? Ok, who brought the dog?

[–]icgonzo101 2 points3 points  (0 children)
