Augmented reality is changing how we see the world around us, but it’s also changing the way we see ourselves. Rolled out in 2015, Snapchat’s debut camera filters completely changed the game for selfies. The memorable “rainbow barfing” filter uses facial mapping technology to pinpoint key features, like the eyes and nose, to produce a unique overlay. The response was explosive and from there countless filters have come and gone, with many fan favorites on regular rotation.

At opposite sides of the globe, two top-flight international football events have kicked off over the last week. In semi-vaccinated Europe the month-long Euro 2020 tournament began on Friday June 11th, with 11 countries hosting the competition across Europe. On Sunday June 13th in Brazil (a country which had now lost nearly half a million lives to COVID-19) the 2021 Copa America kicked off, with the final taking place on July 10th2021. While Euro 2020 is taking place in front of reduced capacity crowds of fans in stadiums, the Copa America is being played behind closed doors with entire participating national delegations required to be vaccinated, and delegations limited to 65 members. Euro 2020’s official motto ‘Live it. For Real’ can be taken as a declaration of intent to host a top-flight mass sporting event as close to pre-pandemic conditions as feasibly possible. The criteria for live spectator participation for UEFA (the event organisers) was key to this.

Every host must guarantee there will be fans at their games."
