This video is brilliant. There are only so many times I can watch slo mo smash videos but more videos like this mixed in and I think these guys are once again on to something cool.
Every time I see stuff like this, I am left amazed at the capability of humans. To me, it's crazy to think somebody designed and created something so complex that looks so simple on the surface.
OLED still blows my mind. Now just imagine a movie theater size screen that is OLED. Watching movies on that would be insanity.
Gavin can be a right little genius when he wants to.
I've sat through hours of LED, OLED, LCD and Plasma TV training videos for 5 different big box retail stores and this is a fantastic demonstration that far surpasses the ability of those training videos to put into practice in real time what they are trying to teach you.
I had no idea CRT TVs only had the refresh line illuminated. Blew my mind. Thanks for sharing OP!
Really multi-talented guy. It's a real skill to be able to present something in such an engaging and digestible way.
Man, Gavin can be such a great presenter sometimes. I mean I just about always find him entertaining but videos like this he is pretty exceptional at presenting and explaining what he is filming. And I found that "here's one" gag hilarious.
He could probably do this in more established medias if he ever wanted to.
What kinda blows my mind is how I can hear the whine of the CRT in the video, I guess that's to be expected with high quality mics.
I always like videos where Gavin shows that he's actually not a dumb guy. Easy to forget when you watch some of his other work.
