no, no it wasn't easy to follow, can you do that in a more "Realistic" way?

#6 This is the kind of thing they do for fun.

They just like math, and where does it crease? Remember this is theory not realistic. It can't really happen in real life (with physics as we know them now) only in theory with mathematics. And the video really doesn't do it justice.

Who says "that wasn't easy to follow" and then doesn't slow it down and explain it again?

That's like a teacher solving a calculus problem and saying "that wasn't easy to follow, was it?" then leaving the class. :S

What do you think mathematicians do? they solve mathematical puzzles. Seems like a few people here can't or don't want to have to think. I found this quite interesting, how ever i would have preferred an extended edition with an explanation.

I would have prefered a better close up of the "answer" so I could follow what it was doing because it wasn't very clear

I agree with #1. Waster of time, because we didn't get an explanation of the answer.

Thanks go to #15, for the link to the longer video.

For your own information, science is all about interest that can give a mind to facts, and you should know that this actual data is use in many fluid and air engineering , such as design for car for the resisting force ! ;)

Where's the original, there's gotta be a follow up...please. I'm an engineer, either this was BS or it was real, if it was real, let's figure out. Come on guys, we can do this...

That's great and all and I feel I can sleep safer at night knowing that someone has figured this out... but... what is the point... is there an actual application for this? I mean... when would you actually need to turn a sphere inside out? Also... this is an abstract material that can pass through itself... so, basically, until we actually discover or invent this material, this is still physically impossible. Can't believe I just wasted 5 minutes of my life watching this video, watching some of the extended video and writing this effing note.

This vid is a minute and a half of explaining how hard it is, and then do it super quick and dont tell you whats going on.

"It this it?"
"Yes, this is it"
Nice explaination:p
