Ramesh RaskarImaging at a trillion frames per second
Imaging at a trillion frames per secondRamesh is the Associate Professor of the Media Artsand Sciences, the Co-Director, Center for FutureStorytelling and the NEC Career DevelopmentProfessor of Media Arts and Sciences.
Ramesh started his presentation byshowing this picture taken in 1964 of a bullet being shot through an apple.
In 1964 this was somewhat of a bigdeal. Being able to capture somethingas fast a bullet with a camera. With an exposure of a millionth of a second.
He went on to say that 50 years laterwe can see the world not at a millionth or a billionth, but a trillionth frames per second.
With this new kind of photography calledFemto-Photography we can take a slow motion movie of light traveling through space.
The slides that Ramesh used in hispresentation read well and were clearto the eye. I knew what he was talking about.
His delivery was very good. Even with hisIndian accent I was able to understand himperfectly. He spoke loud and clear. Healso did not speak to the point where hewas out of breath. Not only was hispresentation well prepared but Ramesh alsoadded in some jokes to keep the audienceentertained.
Robinson/RaskarBoth Robinson andRamesh were greatspeakers. They bothpresented their materialin such a way that youwere able to understandit without a problem.Both were clear andeasy to understand.One thing that I didnotice is that they bothdidn’t move at all. In myopinion it would bebetter to just walk backand fourth to keep theaudience “awake.”
TipsHello classmates some things that we can all do tobetter our presentations is to speak loud andclear so we are easily understood. Make sure thatwe all are dressed appropriately for thepresentation. And the big one in my opinion islighting, make sure that your audience and seeyou without a problem. Proper lighting is key. Justmake sure to stay calm and breathe, you don’twant to run out of breath while you are speaking.
