    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!

    I think it’d be really cool to see various items inside a giant vacuum chamber, if such a thing exists, particularly a car. I wanna see a car get compressed in a vacuum chamber in slow mo.

    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

    I'm not exactly fussed that the tech was abandoned. 3D has always kind of annoyed me. It somehow cheapens the film for me and I genuinely enjoy them less as a result

    A video idea but Caution! Try hitting a puddle of nitroglycerin with a remotely triggered spring loaded hammer at a bomb range and film it at a ridiculous frame rate. You're in for a shocking surprise .😏

      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.

    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.

    ace iimov 6 days ago +1

    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.

    Yeah, and the saddest thing is, they did stop 3D when it was going to get real fun with OLED, 4k, HDR and HFR... With today's 8k panels, HDMI2.1 and LG's passive technology things would be great.
