9 knots – The Speed of my boat…
Exploring the Beautiful Pacific Northwest
The Verge’s David Pierce and Casey Newton get a behind-the-scenes look at the people and technology behind America’s Cup.
More complex than F1? Girl please…
WASPiest Top Shelf ever.
its not really flying. The lift force used for this boat to not touch the
surface by at least 90% is from the water.
I believe I can fly! an amazing story of Oracle Team USA Sailboat Racing…
Safety, please, the next time you want to ask about it, go skiing!
This video, whilst excellent, is NOT about sailing! It’s the Americas Cup
and that isn’t sailing as the rest of us know it.
TEAN USA, they all are not.
Team USA? I don’t think so
These guys are thinking about hydrofoils the wrong way. They need to get to
higher wind to fly. If they really wanted to go fast, they need to think
about using hydrofoils to keep the boat down.
This was a brilliant video. I knew NOTHING about sailing before watching
this and now I’m up do date in 24 minutes. Beautifully structured video btw.
Only thing I didn’t like about this was the part where deaths due to the
race were compared to pedestrian deaths. That is about the most dishonest
and awful way to talk about somebody who died doing your completely
optional and for entertainment boat race for billionaires and I simply
don’t understand how somebody with her job doesn’t understand how cold
hearted that sounds.
Team NZ ftw!
That face at 23:03 haha
way better than Engadget
but … but is it dangerous? given the charlie rose interview with ellison,
it sure seems he’s peddling calamity rather than compelling racing. this
episode of top shelf certainly reinforces the idea. but seriously, more
complex than formula one? sure, the engineering challenges are as complex,
but not the machinery. she lost credibility with that statement. this was
more an Oracle TeamUSA / NBC / Americas Cup infomercial than reporting. you
were co-opted. sorry, but it’s true.
This was pretty boring
Definitely The Verge. All that Casey hears at 17:10 is: TeChnOlOgY,
Is this Discovery Channel or The Verge?
The boats running java right?
some one please make that a gif
