I’ll be the first to say it: EyeVision is awful.

In case you didn’t watch the Super Bowl, EyeVision was a $6 million Matrix-like effect used for certain replays during the game. It was heavily hyped, but the end result left me wondering where the other $5.9 million went. Instead of a smooth, spin-around effect, what we got was a pixelated, fuzzy, unimpressive effect that really added nothing to the game. The only time it even approached usefulness was during one touchdown call that was somewhat questionable. Really, while this technique might be useful somewhere down the line, I think CBS and the NFL should have held off until it was a little more refined. -ram

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
