    A major reason we are able to have such large displays that refresh at 120Hz these days is because 3D went the way of the Dodo.

    Have you ever thought about filming a mountain bike (and rider)? I started restoring MTBs during covid and there are so many puzzling things! Suspension and tire deformation (and the riders face😂) on impact, frame and fork flex, chain slap, ... Maybe partner with GMBN? Would love to see a collab!

    lets make neutron star collisions simulation make 2 Neodymium Magnets covered in ferro liquid with same size and weight separately then make them collide in spiral way you can make them collide using trampoline-like medium that will draw everything heavy to its center or by hanging them with string then swing it till they meet each other in the center the fun-things happen in last seconds until they collide when each magnet pull others ferro liquid and when they collide they will splash ferro liquid in unique way

    hi gav, have you ever recorded a safety barrier in slow motion before? i saw one on youtube that could destroy a 60mph truck based on its design, that can only be seen working in slow motion. at the speeds you use, you would capture every individual hit against a trucks front upon impact.

    there's nothing special about 3D screens. 3D TVs are 100hz instead of 60hz. NVIDIAs active shutter technology, "NVIDIA 3d vision" requires monitor with at least 120hz refresh rate, which most of us gamers have anyway. In-fact 120hz never caught on, so most high refresh rate monitors have 144hz or faster displays.

    I was 10 years old, it was 1993. Nobody reading this would probably believe this but I myself came up with the idea of using liquid crystal glasses to filter two separate video streams into the eyes using a time controlled system. Initially the purpose was to enable two people in the same room to watch two separate programs on a single screen by wearing a pair of these glasses which would filter the correct frame from the correct show to the person who wanted it and each wearing headphones so they could hear the show they wanted.
