I honestly don't think it's possible to watch this all the way through without pausing for a few minute's thought, reflection, and rumination.
Following my recent Gnarly to the Max blog in which I showed three videos (the singing hippo and dancing dog, the alien singing "I will survive," and the real-world parrot driving a motorized buggy), my chum David Ashton living "Down Under" in Australia (one place I REALLY want to visit) send me a link to the following mind-blowing video (make sure you have sound on and also boost it up to full screen, if possible):
I honestly dont think it's possible to watch this all the way through without pausing for a few minute's thought, reflection, and rumination at the end. Take a look, and then tell me what you think via the comments below.
If you found this article to be interest, visitMicrocontroller / MCU Designline where in addition to my Max's Cool Beans blogs on all sorts of "stuff" you will find the latest and greatest design, technology, product, and news articles with regard to all aspects of designing and using microcontrollers.
Also, you can obtain a highlights update delivered directly to your inbox by signing up for my weekly newsletter just Click Here to request this newsletter using the Manage Newsletters tab (if you aren't already a member you'll be asked to register, but it's free and painless so don't let that stop you [grin]).
Last but certainly not least, make sure you check out all of the discussions and other information resources at All Programmable Planet. For example, in addition to blogs by yours truly, microcontroller expert Duane Benson is learning how to use FPGAs to augment (sometimes replace) the MCUs in his robot (and other) projects.
just use left/right arrow keys with the video paused.
It works better within the Youtube site and when the video is (almost) loaded.
I've tested it and the individual pics are really amazing!!
NOTE: you must click multiple times the keys in order to advance to a new picture, as there is not a direct correspondence between frames and images.
It's amazing what they managed to squeeze in -- if you added something from one religion you'd get folks saying "but what about..."
The best thing about this is that it makes you think what YOU would include / exclude if you were doing your own version...
if you single step thru it, there are quite a few "iconic" photographs - Time / Newsweek cover type stuff - Kent state, the girl in the road in Vietnam, etc. If everyone included everything they wanted, it would run a lot more than 2 minutes! I'd guess they made it so annoyingly fast to make you go back later and look at it again in more detail.
Not quite the same thing, but I always thought about doing something to Billy Joel's "We didn't start the fire" - you have a ready made subject list - but inevitably someone has already:
Not quite how I would have done it but there are others as well and I haven't watched many yet. Just put "We didn't start the fire" into You Tube and there are tons of them.
Well Duh! :-)
Assuming 4.6 billion years, then if you had 1 sec for every million years the while thing would take 4600 seconds = more than 76 minutes ... and having just 1 sec for the last million years wouldn't be much use...
