the future is now

what the fuck. what the fuck how. how the hell.

“how the hell” is the fact that flight paths are ENTIRELY PRE-PROGRAMMED AND SCHEDULED. This is trivial.

“Technology has gotten so precise that it is possible to sync the image on an enormous video screen with the movements of an actual, real life, giant flying machine carrying hundreds of human beings thousands of meters up into the air. This is trivial.”

This is not trivial. This is fucking amazing. I love technology.

Well it helps that with like $20 in radio equipment and a computer, I can get a listing of every plane overhead, their speed, their callsign and their location.

It’d be easy enough to use that information to look up the flight origin/destination and then synchronize the video to where the plane is saying it is.
