So, yes, I watching the Olypmics this week and as always, I look for how the technology is changing how we understand things while cheering for Michael Phelps and Bela Karolyi. (I think Bob Costas and Bela should take their act on the road. They could explain the nuances of tort reform in the most excited way possible.)
I mean, how many times have you seen that “one frame every hundredths-of-a second” underwater camera watching Phelps sneak the Gold out from under Cavic? How did they watch the Olympics 8 years ago (let alone 40) without such amazing advancements (side note: did you know they only measure swimmers’ times in hundredths of a seconds instead of thousandths because its impossible to “build swimming pools in which each lane is guaranteed to be precisely the same length”? Talk about technology outpacing in one area more than others)?
I wanted to mention an article that talks about how some of these photographers take those amazing shots.
None of this has anything to do with the WAA or this website, but I thought it was cool, so I am passing it on.
