    Medical I am wondering if I am exceptionally visual

    Lets say I am standing in the middle of the street in Newyork city. I can visualize ANYTHING. Not just a picture but a full movie like motion. Like water gushing into the city and I can see the waves crashing into the buildings and the physics are perfect. I can just sit here and dream of...

    Best part of physics for a spacial/visual thinker & learner?

    I have never restudied anything. I was a huge slacker in HS. I was in Algebra II my junior year. I pulled a C, which was better than the D I got from Alg I the year before. But at the end of my junior year, my math teacher gave us our options of next year's math course. She said to us that...

    Best part of physics for a spacial/visual thinker & learner?

    I am a highly visual person and have always been. I love physics but seem to have been stumped. I stopped my education because of the math. I finally realized that I don't understand the math. I was finishing up calc III and didn't understand it. Granted, I could do the math. But, I didn't...

    Need help building motion sensor

    I need a motion sensor that can focus on a very small area(not hawk eye) and detect a change in LED color/brightness. In addition, I need this motion sensor to trigger a cylinoid to press something when it senses. Where the hell do I find this stuff?

    Spatial & Visual Thinkers

    Alright, I am a VERY big visual learner. Always have been. I learn more through pictures and visual representation. Any audio simply confuses me. Now see, I don't know if everybody can visualize stuff like I can. I assume that you can though. I can picture ANYTHING happening before me...

    Switching from Computer Engineering to (quantum)Physics

    True ^ My head was about to bust yesterday thinking about physics, nanotechnology, computer engineering(so many fields). For computer engineering, I don't want to work with small things, such as computer systems for planes or something irksome. I want to work for Intel or AMD, or ATI/Nvidia...
