The Game Theorists

7 måneder siden

SUBSCRIBE to Catch all the Theories! ►
There is no end to the things we can about in the Sonic universe. Today, Austin is taking the reins on calling out the insane things that happen in the franchise... like the loop-de-loops he runs! How does Sonic run upside down? Is it safe? Does he actually run fast enough that this would work? Make sure your shoelaces are tied Theorists, because we've gotta go fast!

In some places in the video I just said out loud “Jesus christ you’re such a nerd” not in a mean way it’s just that my brain cannot keep up, hell, it’s not even getting on anything only 1 or 2 things that are SIMPLE to understand. I’m to young to understand anything of what Austin is saying. Austin is a grown man using Math and Science to try and figure out *game characters* in a realistic way to see if it’s possible irl, he is loosing his sanity in this process and he has done a lot of videos so you can just imagine his sanity almost breaking at one point in *a few* of his videos, at *least* a few. I need to sleep before I loose *my* sanity. PS: 11:09 just yeeted me off the cliff. My head is actually hurting help. I’m not even kidding. I never was.

I never noticed until recent that sonic's feet run in a circular motion like a wheel unlike how anything in reality runs, so sonic is near always moving in a wheel.

In the comics Sonic's speed is "incalculable". He becomes an embodiment of chaos capable of warping reality to his whims. So Sonic and science have a turbulent relationship at best.

What if our perspective of the game is slowed down to so that we can actually manage to see what's going on, and while we see him running slowly, it's only because it's slowed down to make the game playable?

wonder if when we play the sonic games, the whole thing is done through some sort of time dilation~ hence why all those rocket cars and robots and swinging ball chains and this super sonic hedgehog are even remotely controllable/avoidable given how fast he moves outside of most playable media. though this would mess up the gravity even more than it has already.. so probably would balance it out, or make it worse.

I recently started rewatching Sonic X, and I am now incredibly curious at how strong Knuckles is (he punched through trees and broke a metal robot in half), and how tough do Sonic and Knuckles have to be in order to withstand the force of falling out of an airplane and landing on ground with no slowing? Could you please do 1 or 2 videos over these?

Gravity as a topic got me thinking about something.... Warhammer 40k titans. Witch could stand, wich could move, and wich would have their legs crumple like a soda can on a jocks forehead in a 80's flick.

Hey Austin, you made a error in your potential energy calculation at around 13.:40. You used the full diameter of the loop for how heigh he had lifted his weight, that is incorrect, unless the soles of his feet are the only thing weighing anything. Instead you should have used how much he moves his Center Of Mass up. Assuming that he have a COM at 60% height (like a human) he only raises his COM 2,86 meters, not 4,06 meters. Given his weird shape, it wouldn't be surprising if the COM where even higher, giving a even lower potential energy. Edit: At a COM of 60%, he would "only" have to run 12,9 m/s.

wait but what if the way we see sonic is slowed down but in reality he’s running the speed of light? that means we are looking at what sonic looks at when time is slowed down. that’s why he can run a full loop by only running the same speed a human can run

What should be considered is the fact that the centripetal force increases the force Sonic is able to exert onto the ground which in turn increases the tractive capabilities of his shoes, which seem to be quite slippery at "ordinary" gravity (which is nice if you don't need much comfort and can use the reduced deformative losses to reach higher speeds)

7:08 the equation to calculate the minimum velocity an object must be travelling at the top of a loop to not fall is v=sqrt(g*R), being g gravity and R the radio of the loop. This comes from the centripetal acceleration equation (in this case that acceleration is gravity): a= (v^2)/R

8:23 Are you sure about your gravity formula ? I didn't run the calculs but to me, falling 6.58m in 0.783s seems very close to our good old falling 9.807m in 1s, which is the gravity on Earth. How do we jump from here to 21.43m/s2 ?
