This seems like a bigger achievement than it looks : Two guys basically blindfolded, using a digital representation as their basis of motor functions like throwing/catching. Pretty wicked.
The speed of the calculations occuring here is absolutely mind-blowing.
Person A starts to move arm - computer A sends information displaying arm movements and torch location. computer B receives the information and displays it for Person B. All fast enough for Person B to actually physically catch the torch. The simulated times and distances and RL times and distances have to be within an extremely low margin to successfully catch a thrown object.
Raising almost 300,000 Renminbi raised ($46,823.79), The SIlver Cord Chinese translation campaign bettered our US #Kickstarter campaign (which had 720 backers who pledged $42,723). Which means we have a bigger fan base in CHINA.
