The McGurk Effect


MetaBotch Doggy Dogg Mellencamp

Pretty fascinating. Wonder if this is why speaker manufacturers put such nice veneered finishes on their wares...
This is the second time in a month I have come across this illusion. Gives even more credence to the idea that I can listen better when I close my eyes.
Pretty cool. No matter how hard I tried, I could easily still see that guy saying "fah" instead of "bah".
This is an excellent example why double blind tests are used for accuracy in the audio world, further more, people who condem ABX testing are selling a bill of goods, not being objective and are full of shit!

Agreed. I watched it again, but this time I closed my eyes during the "bah" scenes (especially when the guy was switching back and forth). Much harder to make out the "fah" sounds when you can't see it since he wasn't saying that to begin with.

Now that I think of it, did anyone notice the narrator's voice had a bit of flutter to it? The program seems fairly new, but the narrator made it seem like a documentary from the early 80s.
That was really neat, just another example of why I love all you guys. I never know on any given day what cool post someone may come up with...That's not typically the type of insightful video I stumble upon in my day to day routines... :eusa-clap:
