Ever wondered how they film a tank shell in flight for over 100m meters like it was travelling at walking speed or the instant of a nuclear explosion.
In this video, I look at the super high-speed cameras that can run at millions of frames per second that were made well before the modern electronic ones of today as well have the amazing flight follower systems and the fastest real-time tracker in the world.

A 4yo little boy named LJ from W.V. in the United states came up with the idea of using the mirrors in front of a camera. It took them years to figure it out. The mirror has to move less distance than the camera. To track a fast moving object.

这跟踪技术好牛逼。图像识别技术能发展的话和激光武器结合,战场上空挂个空中战舰整个区域无敌了吧?只要能识别目标激光器就可以瞄准。
