From XKCD, of course:
Doesn't this cause epilepsy or liberalism? It's clear they don't want to tell us anything except in videos. Doesn't anybody wonder why that might be?
A bunch of clear lines on black moire'd with a bunch of other lines slowly rotating
A bunch of clear lines on black along roads moire'd with a bunch of junk = car headlights down the road.
It's a moiré interference pattern, but I don't think it has anything to do with the double-slit experiment.
Sure it does, from the link in the article: http://boingboing.net/2010/01/11/modeling-visual-hall.htmlCombining periodic patterns including waves involves the same mathematical phenomena.
Okay, they're related in that sense, but the single/double-slit experiment demonstrates the dual wave/particle nature of light. Two overlapping screens creating a moiré don't.
I bet it still creates the pattern when not viewed.
