Just stole the video title for the subject. Now I know that some of you here will find this very interesting.

Pretty cool stuff, but has some immense limitations at the moment:

1. It can't capture a live event at femto-second resolution. It needs to illuminate a static object repeatedly with synchronised timing and heaps of processing.

2. You need a femto-second laser and amplifier, which need to be cryogenically cooled and with insane power requirements (looking at many kW of power consumption). These are very large and won't be dropping down in size for a while.

So yeah, cool but no mobile phone implementations anytime soon ...

Watched it a couple of months ago, was always interested about how all these things you take for granted as being different, when you actually look at them deep enough act very similar. Pressure, light, liquid, gas, all work incredibly similar. Which makes sense.

I love how a scientist knowing what they know can get excited about certain things which from a technical view point is almost meaningless to the average Joe. But then with a seemingly simple demonstration turn that average Joes (me) ignorance into the same excitement and desire to know more that the scientist has.

Now and again ill watch a video of something that stikes me as so incredibly cool i cant imagine why we dont sink every spare buck we have into research.

You'd would be waiting 1,321 years to watch 1 recorded second at 30 frames per second.

Obviously I would want to watch an edited version that has been sped up a hell of a lot. Those slow-mo videos on YouTube are pretty cool to watch.

What I'm impressed at is they recorded light photons over and over to stitch together the final video, yet the jig and equipment was kept perfectly static.

Well, Ted has an embed feature ... (for whatever reason it isn't playing for me, but you can download it via a link inside the video)
