Cologne release incredible body camera footage capturing former Arsenal and Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud’s stunning pre-season goal for AC Milan


MindFly’s AI-powered body camera was used in AC Milan’s 2-1 pre-season friendly win over FC Koln on Saturday night.

It gave fans a unique and never-before-seen viewing experience and captured Olivier Giroud’s chip against the German team.

The idea is that fans can watch matches from a player’s first person perspective (FPV), eliminating the distance between player and fan.

A lightweight AI bodycam vest is used and features state-of-the-art technology, which captures the player’s view.

Eran Tal, who is the co-founder of MindFly, has confirmed that Saturday’s clash at the RheinEnergieSTADION in Cologne will feature MindFly.

“We are very happy to be part of 1. FC Cologne’s next game,” he told StartUpHub.

“Using MindFly in football brings the excitement of the pitch to fans. Our lightweight AI vests are designed to maintain player performance and provide the same feel of wearing a GPS vest, and athletes forget that they wear it after a few minutes.

Two Cologne players, Timo Hubers and Tim Lemperle, wore MindFly vests for the game against AC Milan, and the technology provided some incredible views.

The Bundesliga outfit have posted a video on Twitter showing the body camera footage of Florian Dietz’s goal in the 86th minute.

Far from the new technology, Giroud’s first goal of the evening in the 36th minute was the choice of the peloton.

The World Cup winner, who scored 16 goals in 40 appearances for club and country last campaign, picked up the ball at the edge of the area before looping it past Marvin Schwabe to carry it at 2-0 ahead.

Milan fans will be hoping to see more of the French striker as the Serie A giants seek to retain their domestic crown next season.
