That is probably the most awesome thing I have ever seen

A bullet of light in slow motion...

Frickin Awesome, Thanks OP, I want one too.

Wait a minute.

If the shutter speed on this thing is traveling at way past the speed of light to capture the video, doesn't that mean the speed of light itself is not the universal speed limit as thought before?

Of course I don't know that this even uses shutters.. probably not.. but it raises questions for implications not thought of in this thread yet.

Watch the video. If they can do this and adapt this technology to do other Faster Than Light things then we very well could have Warp Speed, Transporter technology, Hand held laser guns even travel to and through other dimensions.

On the Bad side, we already have every camera in the USA getting it's data recorded at a central database, ( Big Brother, Echelon www.abovetopsecret.com...) Just think what this will do for the Powers That Be's ability to spy on YOU and zap you with a laser or guided bullet. They will be able to track Everyone, Everywhere. This technology for these reasons are why you will never hear of this again. The government will keep exploit and bury it to the eyes of the masses - until it's too late.

Did most of you simply not watch the video? Or do the majority of you have short attention spans prohibiting you from understanding what the guy explains??? The camera doesn't capture a single event! Thus the shutter speed is not "faster than the speed of light" for god sakes! He shines the light for a split second again and again and again. The camera captures parts of each event until it has captured enough frames to piece together what one single event most likely would look like. Even under the most synchronized fashion, however, you still are not viewing a single event! So this doesn't have a lot of the real world implications/practical use that a bunch of you are talking about.... i.e. flashes in the sky, etc Any single event that happens that fast will remain mysterious for a long time. Events that can be REPLICATED, however, will be able to be broken down into trillions of frames for analyzation. But again, a video of a single bullet at trillions of frame per second would take more than a year to view. So, cool technology yes, but it has a FAR ways to go. So please people, start understanding that this is NOT one event that was captured but several (actually, millions) that were then pieced together.

Yes, I watched the video and did post the opening to my post before I finished the video.. as stated, I doubted it actually used a shutter like we think of them. It matters not if this is a single event or trillions of events analyzed and put in sync by a computer, the end result is the same. See my addition about the use of the Gov to exploit this. Besides, no camera captures a single event but captures frames per second (mostly). This camera operates no different than normal camera in that respect, it just uses a different methodology to get the results.

Also he does say all the data is open sourced on the website, but I doubt that will last once the Gov realizes the implications of this technology. ATS fans better be diligent in recording all this data for prosperities sake before that happens.

The MIT site is Here: web.media.mit.edu...

I see lots of photos and videos and an abstract but I don't find the links for the hard science that is supposed to be "Open Sourced" If someone can show me, I'd be grateful.. otherwise the Gov got to them already.... Yes there are references and an FAQ but I believe these are watered down for public consumption.

I want specs of all equipment used and their computer systems, hardware, operating systems, additional software, diagrams on how this whole system is put together and used with trouble shooting guide as in kit form so anyone with the money can replicate these things. I'm not finding that on the website. That's what I call Open Sourced.. anything less is a Big Lie, nothing is really open sourced here.

Did some months ago.

So this doesn't have a lot of the real world implications/practical use that a bunch of you are talking about.... i.e. flashes in the sky, etc

I figure that the technology would have *advanced* from over a year ago. Stuff like this usually does...

Thanks for posting this video. I love how they make all the work open source! Can't wait to see what this type of tech will come from this.

Ok I am an amateur photographer and have to say that was bloody mindblowing. Seeing round corners, guess who would be interested in that sort of technology. Still incredible stuff.

Very nice find.

This technology can be used in caves and sea caves to MAP if not on MARS tunnels. A high power version COULD map the universe
very interesting to see this technology here.

Amazing!! Thank you Op!

Then what is light?
Sun light, electric light?
