Vova Galchenko 2008

I've been a fan of Vova and his sister Olga since I saw them on ESPN in 2005.  Vova and Olga don't make many public appearances anymore, but this article published in 2008 makes me wish they did.

Here's to the Russian Robot!

Do we need 48 fps?  

The answer isn’t as simple as it might seem.

For example:

“Imagine yourself in a very dark room. You have been there for hours and it’s totally black. Now light flashes right in front of you. Let’s say as bright as the sun. Would you see it, when it’s only 1/25th of a second? You surely would. 1/100th of a second? Yes. 1/200th of a second? Yes. Tests with Air force pilots have shown, that they could identify the plane on a flashed picture that was flashed only for 1/220th of a second.”

From 100fps.com: How many frames per second can the human eye see?
