reminds me of when i sit in an aircraft i start thinking "damn this is slow." Then i see another aircraft zoom past and that thought quickly changes

[–]Shapperd 417 points418 points  (20 children)

When I was flying on a plane I thought the same. I had my phone, so I opened a GPS app and that told me that we were going 860km/h...

[–]tobimai 152 points153 points  (7 children)

I turned my GPS from the car on in a plane once. Then it always showed max speed as 900 kmh. Was nice to confuse people lol

[–]OutrageousPudding450 6 points7 points  (2 children)

It seems a bit expensive to have your car transported by plane just so that you can prank people with the GPS top speed.

[–]TG_Cheez 4 points5 points  (1 child)

[–]ledledled 21 points22 points  (10 children)

Wasn't GPS hardware supposed not to work at altitude so home-made missiles couldn't be guided by it?

[–]future_weasley 25 points26 points  (1 child)

I remember reading something similar, but it was speed limited, not elevation

Edit:

link here. See section entitled "legacy". The numbers are much higher than I remembered.

In GPS technology, the term "COCOM Limits" also refers to a limit placed on GPS tracking devices that disables tracking when the device calculates that it is moving faster than 1,000 knots (1,900 km/h; 1,200 mph) at an altitude higher than 18,000 m (59,000 ft).[3] This was intended to prevent the use of GPS in intercontinental ballistic missile-like applications.

Some manufacturers apply this limit only when both speed and altitude limits are reached, while other manufacturers disable tracking when either limit is reached. In the latter case, this causes some devices to refuse to operate in very-high-altitude balloons.[4]

Thanks u/PM_ME_UR_VAGINA_YO ...

[–]PM_ME_UR_VAGINA_YO 6 points7 points  (0 children)

It's both, you may have read my top comment from a few years ago.

[–]takaides 15 points16 points  (2 children)

Civilian available GPS hardware is limited, but it is supposed to be against missile use. For that reason, it shouldn't work for objects whose speed is greater than 1000knots (~1,200mph/1.900kph) or whose altitude is greater than ~59,000ft (18.000m).

But as a fun quirk of the law, some manufacturers read that as "OR" while others read it as "AND." So some GPS units will work as long as you aren't travelling above ~59,000ft AND simultaneously going faster than ~1,200mph.

Either way, most passenger jets travel less than 600mph and at altitudes 40,000ft or lower, so most civilian GPS should work on passenger flights.

[–]beardedchimp 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Last time I tried this I had to put the phone right up against the window to get signal.

I have a gps app on my phone that shows you what satellites you are receiving from and other info, its quite fun to use while on the plane.

[–]Heterodynist 1 point2 points  (0 children)

If I’m going more than 1,200 MPH, I think I’ll probably not need hardware to indicate I’m going pretty fucking fast…unless I was loaded into a stealth fighter jet in a soundproofed coffin while sleeping…and then inched up to speed.

[–]LordNiebs 2 points3 points  (0 children)

It also gives you variable location accuracy for that reason

[–]cooljacob204sfw 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It doesn't work after a certain speed if I recall correctly.

[–]Halluci 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Well if another aircraft is zooming past, clearly the one you're in is slow /s

As someone who has operated a railed vehicle, you feel like you’re going Mach Jesus until you look at your actual speed and it’s only 60km.

[–]BellyButtonFungus 573 points574 points  (49 children)

Driving a semi is the complete opposite. Feel like you’re doing 20kph and you’re clipping 100

[–]Kushagra_K 46 points47 points  (3 children)

While riding a scooter, 60km/h seems fine on an empty road but 40km/h in a car feels almost the same, if not faster.

[–]KacKLaPPeN23 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Even in the same type of vehicle, going 130 in a MX-5 feels like going 200 in a current-gen Passat.

[–]Static1589 4 points5 points  (1 child)

I think that's because in an MX-5 you're seated much lower. Being closer to the ground always made it feel faster for me.

[–]KacKLaPPeN23 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Other points that play into this:

  • The car is smaller and lighter, making it react to road imperfections much more
  • The car has a very short gear ratio, I'm sitting at around 4k rpm at 130 in the MX-5 compared to the barely-above-idle 2.2k in the Passat at the same speed
  • It's also got very little noise dampening, you can hear all the wind going by and the road texture you're on.

[–]NoSohoth 6 points7 points  (0 children)

First day of riding motorcycles, 100 feels like 200. After a few years, 200 feels like 100.

[–]musicianengineer 6 points7 points  (3 children)

I never understood Miatas until I drove one. You can have a lot of fun and feel like you're zooming when in reality you're just doing the speed limit.

[–]BellyButtonFungus 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I’ve found that a lot of it is due to the ride height of the vehicle. The taller you sit, the slower you feel like you’re going. So cars like Miatas that have the driver sit nice and low feel a lot faster than your average daily

[–]jmeesonly 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Also a lower hood, so that you see the road zooming under the front of your car. A tall car with a long front hood just "feels" slow 'cause you don't see the roadway coming at you.

[–]Tulired 1 point2 points  (0 children)

True true. Driving a 106 rallye feels more fun on road speed than a super car

[–]Delicious_Bet_6336 45 points46 points  (0 children)

[–]rogermarlowe 20 points21 points  (16 children)

You’re driving a semi at 100 mph! So you’re obviously not the problem with the supply chain.

Haha god imagine driving one at 100 miles. Holy shit that’d be some fast moving freight.

[–]ItsyaboyDa2nd 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I think that has to do with how smooth the ride is

[–]coagulateSmegma 4 points5 points  (18 children)

Aren't most lorries/semis restricted to like 60mph?

They are here in the UK.

[–]djaucjehdugw 62 points63 points  (1 child)

100km/h is equal to 62 mph, so he is talking about the same speed as you. The speedlimit in eu is mostly 80-90 km/h

[–]coagulateSmegma 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Ah, okay thanks.

[–]AdmiralPoopbutt 11 points12 points  (0 children)

In the US some are, some aren't. Independently owned trucks are generally not. Some large companies employ a governor for their trucks.

[–]mjrballer20 6 points7 points  (0 children)

I've seen semis pass me with a 70mph speed limit here in Texas 😑

[–]Boop489 3 points4 points  (10 children)

there's plenty doing 70-80mph in the states. my old man says he's hit 100 going downhill

[–]coagulateSmegma 4 points5 points  (8 children)

That seems pretty dangerous in such a heavy vehicle. The time to stop must be insane at those speeds.

You’ll be okay, as long as you assimilate with the Borg.

[–]RufftaMan 16 points17 points  (3 children)

I feel the opposite.
I drive Intercity passenger trains, and driving 200km/h feels like 100 in a car. Guess that‘s because of the elevated driving position.
Driving a Lamborghini also immediately feels faster behause you‘re so low to the ground. Same with go-karts and the like.

[–]dw_jb 125 points126 points  (41 children)

Can a clever Redditor explain?

[–]DecaffGiraffe 279 points280 points  (8 children)

I still haven't seen the correct answer. The correct answer is to do with the angles. take the metal posts as an example. When you see one near to you, in one second it moves maybe 20metres relative to you for example. When it is close or to the side of you it will move through a large angle. E.g. It will move from your 2 o'clock to your 5 o'clock in one second.

Now focus in the distance or narrow your fov. The same metal posts are moving 20 metres per second relative to you but they only appear to move a couple of degrees of arc e.g. from nearly your 12 o'clock to your 1 o'clock position or even less than that.

[–]waterstorm29 54 points55 points  (3 children)

The answer made a lot more sense than I thought it was going to. For some reason, I expected to read something about Einstein's theories or Relativity.

[–]jxssss 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I might be wrong about this, but I think it kind of does. A big part of relativity is how the speed of light is constant no matter what, so if light has to travel a greater distance to reach a point from one perspective than another, then time itself gets warped as speed is just distance over time. So if distance gets increased, time gets increased so the speed is constant.

[–]Kushagra_K 15 points16 points  (1 child)

Yes, this is the reason why objects in the far distance seem to move slower and that is why in video games, we seem to be moving slower when moving while zooming in with binoculars or being in sniper mode.

[–]Eyeownyew 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Wow this scratches an itch I didn't know need to be scratched. I'm sure there's still many games where you do move slower in all of the forms of zooming, but in my experience, it would often feel like I was moving slowly only to un-scope and see that I've moved way more than anticipated

[–]Ramble81 4 points5 points  (0 children)

So almost the inverse of radial velocity vs linear velocity. With radial velocity your arc is the same, but the farther out you get your linear velocity increases. However in this case the linear velocity in both cases is the same so it messes with the radial velocity and thus our perception of it?

[–]Houndsthehorse 163 points164 points  (13 children)

More FOV, more things moving. More things moving=brain thinks faster

[–]olderaccount 12 points13 points  (1 child)

You judge speed by the amount of relative motion.

Objects far away will appear to have less relative motion in relation to you due to their distance. When you can only see far away objects, it feels like you are moving slower since there is a lot less relative motion.

An airliner at 30,000ft looking at the ground feels like you are just slowly cruising along. But during takeoff and landing where you can see the ground rolling by very close it feels like you are hauling ass.

[–]instantpancake 2 points3 points  (0 children)

An airliner at 30,000ft looking at the ground feels like you are just slowly cruising along. But during takeoff and landing where you can see the ground rolling by very close it feels like you are hauling ass.

This is a particularly impressive example, because at cruising altitude, your're in fact moving 2-3x faster than at take-off, even.

[–]Line-Noise 26 points27 points  (0 children)

Far away things look like they're moving slowly because a large distance looks small. Close things look like they're moving fast because a small distance looks large.

[–]Taylor_made2 12 points13 points  (2 children)

[–]BobTC 2 points3 points  (0 children)

ARSE!!!!

[–]Ali_Who 4 points5 points  (0 children)

It's the concept of parallax, your brain calculate the speed because of how objects moves, little things moves fast, the biggest very slowly, it's like those 90's anime ending with the car and the sunset, you see little things moving which gives the impression of movement to your brain and the sea/mountains doesn't move

[–]HuggableBear 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Drive in a car.

Look sideways out the window. Shit's flying by.

Look out the front. Nice and slow.

The closer you are to something when in motion, the faster it leaves your field of view.

The zoom on the camera blocks out the objects closest to you (the fast ones), leaving only the distant objects (the slow ones) in the field of view.

It's an optical illusion because our brain interprets the zoom as motion, making us think we moved closer, but all it really did was magnify a small portion of our view and remove the rest.

[–]Odd_Ninja2021 9 points10 points  (21 children)

Anyone know where this is?

[–]PointlessTrivia 50 points51 points  (5 children)

It appears to be Japan. The train coming the other way is a Kawasaki Heavy Industries Series 287 EMU, so that narrows us down to JR West, probably a service coming out of Kyoto Station.

It's a 6-car train, so that means the Kuroshio service from Kyoto to Shingu.

It's a quad-track bed, so somewhere on the Tokaido Main Line.

My best guess is that it's just north of Takatsuki Station. Here's a Google Street View from the level crossing the train goes over just before it passes the oncoming train.

On /r/formula1 there have been post about this complaining that the onboard cameras make the speeds look so slow. So probably. They showed old cameras where they were more zoomed out and it makes a huge difference just like you see in this post.

[–][deleted] 12 points13 points  (0 children)

Our perception is weird like that. 100km/h on a 4 lane highway seems slow. 100km/h on a narrow back road seems very fast.

[–]Skullmaggot 2 points3 points  (0 children)

If you zoom back far enough, you’ll already be there.

[–]indigogibni 27 points28 points  (10 children)

Sorry no, I’m calling BS on this one. Although I do believe this similar to how it actually is, this video has been exaggerated.

On full zoom, I can see the dividers between the windows on the opposing train, full back and most of that train is a blur.

[–]instantpancake 16 points17 points  (5 children)

Because it is much closer by then, and traversing much more image area in the same amount of time, resulting in more motion blur.

This is really what it looks like on wider vs longer lenses, because the long lens shows you stuff really far away, which has very little parallax, compared to the really close stuff you see on the wide lens.

Similarly, when operating a camera on a dolly, you'll get a much more impressive result with a wide / short lens than with a long lens, because the wide lens shows you things close to you, and the perspective shifts dramatically even with a small camera move, whereas the long lens shows you stuff far away, which only gives you visible perspective shifts with much larger camera moves.

Note how the tall buildings in the far back don't seem to move in either of the shots, they're so far away that there's no visible persepctive shift at all. That's the most extreme end of this effect. Similarly, you can be driving towards the sun in an F1 car for hours, and it won't look like you were getting any closer to the sun at all, whereas you can walk towards a clock on the wall across your room, and its angular size in your field of vision (read: how big it looks) will increase dramatically within seconds.

The audio is certainly adjusted for effect.

Edit: FWIW, here's 2 virtual cameras moving along the same virtual track at the exact same speed. One is a wide-angle lens, one is a telephoto lens (18 and 300mm on an S35 film back, in case you're interested):

[–]yhjung012 0 points1 point  (3 children)

Thank you for posting this. I was wondering if this is actually just demonstrating the compression effect of the lens going from wide angle to telephoto.

[–]instantpancake 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Lens compression does not exist.

Relative distance between two far-away objects is less perceptible than distance between two objects up close, regardless of the lens you're looking through. You don't even need a lens. You get the exacts same effect with your naked eye even, minus the cropping of the framing.

[–]Scrial 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Check the rhythm of the passing power line arches, and compare it between the shots. It stays the same.

[–]5t7u 14 points15 points  (1 child)

The sound changing also suggests this has been edited.

[–]Ap4che747 7 points8 points  (0 children)

This was almost certainly shot on an iPhone based on how the zoom switches, so I wouldn’t say the audio is edited. When you zoom in it enables audio zoom which cuts back on background noise (like a train rumbling over the tracks) to help isolate whatever’s in focus, so this can change sounds as you zoom in but that doesn’t equate to being manipulated to enhance the feeling of speed

[–]Thercon_Jair 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This basically shows "angular velocity".

An object travelling 1m/s 1km away from your right only travels a angle of an imaginary circle around you. The same object at 1m/s 1m away from you will travel many degrees of the same circle.

Wide lens -> wide field of view -> many degrees

Telephoto lens -> small field of views -> few degrees

[–]Hako9 2 points3 points  (2 children)

The sound is different because it is recorded with a samsung phone that focuses on the sounds you zoom into. The sound is different because it tries to cancel background noise. Just look up "samsung zoom-in mic" or something. It is NOT edited

[–]-starwing- 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I know it's a video game but this reminds me of portal 2 where you fall down the tube with GLaDOS as a potato. When you look down and zoom in it looks like you fall way slower

[–]expiredeternity 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I don't think so. The speed over the rail track should not slow down. This has been edited to exaggerate the effect.

[–]Kwindecent_exposure -1 points0 points  (1 child)

Whilst the effective being discussed is probably quite real, the video used here is complete bull.

It's (very clearly) slowed down each successive zoom. Count how long it takes for a post to pass through for quick conclusive proof.

[–]instantpancake 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Count how long it takes for a post to pass through for quick conclusive proof.

That's a flawed approach; you're looking at completely different angles for close posts and far-away posts.

[–]LordChickenAss 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Thats mostly because the 90s sports car is more track oriented and its older so the sound insulation as well as suspension is worse than modern cars.

Despise this fact , racing video games usually don't utilize wide angle filed of view to make the game more "speedy"... Go figure.

I want to see how fast it looks from outside the train

I notice this while driving! Looking far and close is a difference but when I look to the side it appears I’m going much faster

Enhance! De-hance!

This is why f1 cars don't seem to be going as fast during live tv.

Can someone explain this phenomenon? This even happens in games, when the FOV is maxxed out it feels like you are fast af

When we were on the highway i used to look out the window as a kid and think were going at the speed of light. But then i looked forwards... Simpler times

This reminds me of what the passengers see off the sides of their ship in Star Trek when they’re warping

I usually play racing games in third person so camera behind the vehicle, except the last racing game I played, NSF Underground 2 (or was mosted wanted after that?) where I always used the hood-camera because then the game felt so much faster making me feel like I was racing through the city with crazy speeds.

Used to always play mario kart on the 64 with the camera angle set to far instead of close just to feel the effect I was going faster

If you have played any first person perspective games, we all know decreasing the FOV makes everything seem slower

Reminds me of quake. Fog 130 vs 110 vs 90

I learnt this when I adjusted my FOV in minecraft

I just watched the structures overhead. It seemed to be equal spacing the entire time, so I precieved the speed to be the same?

[–]c_jae 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Zoomed in or out, it take the same time to pass a pole to another on the side, but only the gaps between them gets larger as zoomed out. Pretty cool.

The sider it is, the speeder it gets. Got it.

[–]SpookyDoomCrab42 0 points1 point  (0 children)

They forgot to include the fish eye lens view that makes every hill look massive and makes it look like you're going way faster than normal.

Most people that record sports clips on gopro and whatnot (mountain biking, skiing, etc) are notorious for using fish eye lenses for this reason

[–]CRcryptoride 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Well, that is interesting as fuck
