illusury infinite!

Postby TerraFrost » Thu Dec 05, 2002 7:45 am

When you are in between two mirrors, each facing you, you see an infinite number of mirrors and everything that is in each... well.. I'm thinking it'd be neat to see what happens with an infinite number computer screens! I'm thinking someday, if i get bored enough, i'll hook my tv out into the input on my tv card... so i could see my computer displaying my computer displaying my computer displaying... it'd be so cool! i wonder if it'd crash, hehe.

I don't think it'd crash...I think you'd just get static.

I tried this once, a long time ago, my computer crashed, and I never tried it again. Gigafrost, however, has got it setup so he can do this:

Interestingly, my old "static" comment is accurate if your entire screen displays what's coming in. My DVD recorder is set up so that it outputs to my composite system, but its video input is also the composite system. When you switch to the DVD recorder while it's simply doing pass-through, it shows light static that gets more and more intense. Maybe I should record it to show y'all. :)
