Hey kids, it’s Hunter Pence!
Good old Hunter Pence, sticking his tongue out and diving for the ball…. now, let’s have Google’s Deep Dream take a look at Hunter Pence! It’s meant to show how a computer looks at things looking for images and such. So, what does it see with Hunter Pence?
Oh, Wally. You scared me there. I was worried for a second…
AHHHHHH! PLEASE GOD GET IT AWAY FROM ME, AHHHHH!
Oh. Alex Rodriguez, you don’t look nearly as demonic in person as some people on the internet say…
I TAKE IT ALL BACK, PLEASE DON’T EAT MY SOUL!
Huh, a Dodger Dog and some beer. There are worse things, I suppose…
NOOOO DEAR GOD, IT’S BECOME LIKE A HORSE-FISH-DOG-CTHULHU THING! OH, THE HUMANITY!
YOU MADE THE HOME RUN SCULPTURE WEIRDER?!?! HOW DO YOU EVEN DO THAT!?!?!
THAT’S SUPPOSED TO BE A BASEBALL GLOVE NOT A MANY-EYED MONSTER BEYOND MAN’S COMPREHENSION! I’M OUT OF HERE BEFORE I LOSE MY SANITY!
Oh, but the Art-Deco functions and stuff are cool:
Come back this weekend for Bizarre Baseball Culture, and until then experiment with the Deep Dream stuff over at Dreamscope.
Ha ha! I don’t remember this one….great stuff!
