Our eyes can only "see" so much. There's more things that go on but our eyes can't really capture what's going on and most of that stuff is invisible to us. A team of MIT scientists have managed to reveal invisible motions in video to us.
Researchers over at MIT's Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory came up with a process called Eulerian Video Magnification which involves exaggerating the impossible for the human eye to see kind of movements.
You can see it in video though. And you can see a person's face flushing as the blood pumps from his heart, and well, more. What would it be like to actually experience this with our own eyes, we wonder. According to the NYT:
The scientists who developed it believe it could also have applications in industries like manufacturing and oil exploration. For example, a factory technician could film a machine to check for small movements in bolts that might indicate an impending breakdown.
A black hole is hard to understand, but this video will really give you some perspective. So how big can they be? Imagine this: crush the Sun to the size of a small town and crush the Earth to the size of a peanut. That's how big they can be. Read more
A common misconception and belief most people have when they lose weight, is that fat just gets burned off. Some believe it even gets turned into muscle. But new research published in the British Medical Journal is suggesting otherwise. Read more
