One trillion frames is a lot of frames. Imagine doing gif edits in that

I sat here waiting for that ******* picture to move thinking it was a .gif at 1 trilion fps
User avatar #14 to #9 - thespecialone (06/09/2013) [-]
excuse me kind sir!

but that fox girl... what's the name of the anime?
i'm sorry but i always forget the name of it and now i can't remember it at all

Boku no Wolf

Spice and Wolf. People have already said it, but I like this picture and wanted an excuse to post it.

well its 1t frames a second but u gotta think about how long this clip would be non slowed im guessing less than .00001 of a second cus its ya know light going 9 inches of coke bottle
#64 to #9 - baconfattie (06/09/2013) [-]
Let's be ******* technical and annoying!

The recording IS in a trillion frames, buuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuut, the export is not. Dunno how many frames that gif has, but I assure you, it doens't have a trillion
#117 - goofyplease (06/09/2013) [-]
Its a very interesting piece of technology, however the camera doesn't record a trillion frames per second. The same beam of light is being fired over and over again, and the same frame is recorded with slightly different timing each time with an incredibly fast shutterspeed.    
   
Mentioned in the video: If you were to watch an ordinary bullet travel the same distance, at the same slow motion factor the movie would take a year to watch.

how can we be sure someone doesn't have a flashlight and moves it slowly over the bottle?

You can see the beam of light hit the bottle cap. If the .gif was a little bit longer, you could also see it break into smaller waves and bounce around

Then that would have been a lot more awesome to see.

It'd probably take ten hours for the chick to order the pizza if not longer.


and nobody wants cold pizza
User avatar #112 to #76 - themastermorris (06/09/2013) [-]
In the video with the coke bottle, they said if they were recording a bullet at the same speed, it would take a year for it to hit the cap
User avatar #110 to #76 - diegotan ONLINE (06/09/2013) [-]
How would it make porn longer? These frames are PER SECOND.
User avatar #81 to #76 - pwnagraphy (06/09/2013) [-]
but imagine it not being 10,000,000,000,000x slowed down, and then you can slow it down at any point and laugh at the faces they make for half a second

One of the coolest aspects of this experiment is that you get to see an unprecedented example of the quantum duality of light. That is, its properties as both a wave and a particle. You can see it acting in particle form, shooting down the length of the bottle. But as it interacts with matter, you can see on the table below how the light radiates in waves. It's such bizarre behavior to see with the human eye. I don't think people realize the fact that this simple experiment with a flashlight and a coke bottle defines the modern contention between general relativity and quantum mechanics.

This looks like it would be a very fun camera to have. Also, I'm interested in how it can record so many Frames per Second. Can someone enlighten me on the subject?
User avatar #129 to #125 - deadxattack (06/09/2013) [-]
It works by recording the same pattern of light over and over again. Then they compile everything together. (Sorry about my bad english)
User avatar #146 to #129 - exclamation (06/09/2013) [-]
You're one of those people who say sorry about bad english, then have amazing english. Then there are people who have ****** english and are native speakers of it.

I love you a little.

I remember watching that video on my new smartphone when it was uploaded.
That means it must be about a year or so old if memory serves.

Anyway it's absolutely amazing. I had to collect my jaw from the floor.

Ah hah, i have done this before, the process is quite simple, yet quite complicated, in a way.
The way that this is done is that it is all recorded by a single camera with an incredibly fast shutter speed, not a camcorder, but a camera...that takes still pictures.
And then you get something that generates a flash of light, a flash that is faster than can possibly be seen by human eyes, thus why the beam is so short.
And then you take pictures at different moments every time this flash happens, tens of thousands of times.
Then you stitch together the resulting pictures into a clip, and above would be the result.
I hope this clarifies to some on how it is done.
And also there is a video on YouTube demonstrating how it is done, thus how i was able to do it myself as well.
Again, this is not all done in one shot, rather done in many, many takes, like a scene in a movie
#68 to #52 - anon (06/09/2013) [-]
Nope, it's different it's a new camera that uses quantum technology

Imagine all the video games at 1 trillion fps.

Must be what heaven is like.
#191 to #151 - anon (06/12/2013) [-]
Hate to drop the reality to you, but, if you had a game that could run at 1 trillion fps, you would also require a screen that would be able to update that many times a second.
I would love to have a screen like that.

well....sounds interesting but without seeing anything else as reference it could also be someone running an led torch along the other side of the bottle at an angle....

Goddamit, the gif already ended before I saw it and won't loop properly. When I refresh, it's just stuck at the end again.

Light from a flashlight is a constant flow of photons, not a single quanta of visible light. The fact that the light source seems to move through the coke bottle while ILLUMINATING it's surroundings is in direct contradiction to the impossibility of a flashlight generating a SINGLE, detectable photon.

Youtube is a reliable source of consistently UN-reliable information. I call ******** .
User avatar #185 to #182 - gladiuss (06/10/2013) [-]
K, it IS fake, and it's also real-ish. The video is the result of dozens of exposures taken at different angles then ASSEMBLED into a 'virtual' video.

Speed of light through water ≈ 224900568 m/s
Length of a 24 oz coke bottle ≈ 10 inches (0.254 m)
Length of gif is ≈ 8 seconds
1 trillion frames per second means each frame is 0.000000001 s.
8 seconds= 8 trillion frames = 0.000000008 s


Total "real" time of gif in seconds ≈ 8e-9
Total time required for light to go .254 m through water = 10.29e-9

I had my doubts, but it looks legit.
Error is almost certainly caused by my counting the length of the gif poorly.
