ok so how can a tunnel from london to new york city be possible? maybe i read this article wrong but it says that it's actually two hd tv's linked together but the official website says nothing about this. anyone know if it's the real deal?

version guys
it's not a tunnel linking anything. it's an art piece. a giant contraption that looks like a telescope and 2 hd camera's in New York. used to view NY as if you were seeing it through a telescope in real time

(because the world is round and that is actually impossible to do with a real telescope)

The tunnel has nothing to do with this except to explain that the guy same guy from this wanted to dig to the other side of the earth.

Obviously because you have not read a single thing about this.

It's just two big HD cameras connected through fiber optic cables which are also connected through a sort of big LCD screen.

But on a side note, I heard you can bag bitches through it from London.


as i stated from my first post, i did read this. i knew for sure this shit was impossible but my friend kept insisting that i was wrong and that there was really a hole from nyc to london. i just let it go and went with it. but now i know that i have another dumb friend. smile

It's just two cameras/tvs that are made to look like a long telescope, cmon now! I think it's based on some old mission to make such a telescope tho.

yeah they dont really tell you that on the official website. the picture of the hole confuses people even more. but only people who don't take a second to think about would just accept it like my dumbass friend haha. a tunnel that long would be impossible to keep up because of the stress that it would have to withstand and would have cost 120381281231 dollars to make.

There are undersea fiber optic cables all around the world. Click here

What I got from reading the article was that it's made to look like an under ground tunnel, but it's actually - as mentioned already - a high definition wall so it looks like you're meeting people from the other side in the tunnel in real life. No telescopes involved lmfao.

The website is set up as a "spoof" to the actual installation. Pretty neat idea.

Yes, as others have said the amount of stupidity in this thread is beyond ridiculous.

Some of you kids need to spend less time on Hypebeast and more time at your local library. Or at least learn to Google shit.
