Johnny C? Nice.

17 minutes of Carmack? 17 minutes of brain training that I'm looking forward to.

Virtual Realty!? Mortgage Simulator 2013! I can't wait.

EDIT: ...it's like listening to a mad scientist describe his doomsday device.

EDIT#2: I love Brad trying to coax him into a soft landing at the end with his "uh huh"s and "yeah"s. Never seen him speak so quickly when he had a chance to.

All the same this is pretty damn interesting.

Kind of easy huh, just a matter of buffers, pipelines and ghosting. Easy peasy.

Science!

I understand like every third or forth word this guy says, which is nearly enough for me to understand.

That duder is hella intelligent.

Edit: "...deeply, fundamentally cool." I'm so glad his brain is working on video games.

Carmack is such a fantastic nerd, I love him. I also love that this rig is just duct taped together.

Great interview though, I could listen to this man all day.

Edited by MordeaniisChaos

Wait, was that futurama music I just heard?

God Damn I love listening to that man talk. That was fascinating.

It's great to see that nanotechvisionology is being worked on.

Edited by MacEG

Carmack is so far above us peons.

Edit: Brad looks like he wants Carmack to ask him to be his disciple.

Posted by Vequeth

This guy knows his shit

Edited by Wacomole

Carmack almost needs 3 extra mouths to get all the info in his head out. An extraordinary man.

Posted by Gonmog

I like to think that I'm a smart guy, but when Carmack opens his mouth, my eyes glaze over.

This guy is insane.

Posted by moe6

@ZombiePie: It all adds up everywhere so less is better.

Edited by NowSayPillow

This was awesome, you guys should see if you can interview him with a little less of a time constraint next time.

Posted by Xyber

<3 Carmack

Posted by gamefreak9

Great interview though this guy has stuff to say so I can't give any credit to brad :P.

Edited by Aetheldod

Uuuuhhhh :D I do hope this things gets to the place Carmack says ... imagine playing games with that thing .... altho for the looks of it it would be limited to FPS ....

He's like a real life Dr Frink without the gufravin havin.

Posted by Rodiard

Genius on there.

Posted by Dukesy

I watched this 3 times..........fucking Carmack

Posted by smokyexe

This guy..

Also, why did you cut it...

Posted by LeeroyPinkerton

I have no idea what he is saying but I feel smarter by the second.

Posted by c0d3m45t3r

I wish Carmack did a podcast

Posted by Scrawnto

@TeamJersey: He mentions how his work on the gyroscopic systems for his rockets came in handy for working with the sensors.

Posted by Crono

I don't think Carmack even took the time to breathe during that interview. I don't know as though it was as much an interview as it was a lecture though. A very fun and interesting lecture at that. I really enjoy listening to a developer that is so passionate about what they are doing. I might not understand everything he says but I don't mind listening.

Posted by Zaccheus

When Brad said held together with duct tape... Well I guess I didn't really think he meant literally.

Posted by Tr0n

Info overload! Awesome like always.
