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.

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.

Carmack is so far above us peons.

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

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

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

This guy is insane.

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

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.

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