Finally. Something that gets hardware and software devs to care about latency. For too long, software, mobile phones, games, monitors and tons of other gadgets have often exhibited latency above 50-100ms. I'm hoping the tech will trickle down from VR headets to other devices so we can end the madness once and for all.

10ms would be better by the way as even 16ms can be perceptible by many.

All sound in the end is air pressure whether that's from an electronic speaker or a 10 trillion year old violin. The speaker is in itself a kind of instrument, except it's the most versatile instrument ever created because it can play not just any sound you have ever heard, but any sound you can POSSIBLY conceive of mathematically. I think that's an incredible concept.

Anyway, his point is that you are not hearing the 30kHz and a 34kHz pitches directly. So that still means the human ear can't hear above roughly 20kHz no matter what anyone claims. However, you're free to go for a double blind trial yourself and see if you're not wrong.

Thanks but no thanks. The one chance we have to remove noise pollution from our roads, and then we have threats it'll come back. The *invisible* damage to all our minds caused by noise pollution in busy towns and streets is worth FAR more in cost than the cost of a few accidents and even lives. People will adapt - they will learn to look where they're going instead of just blindly texting and paying no attention to the road.

Also remember that with towns much quieter (due to no ICE noises), we can hear tire noise a LOT more easily. Rather than making quiet vehicles louder, it's much better we make loud vehicles quieter.

I sympathize with your post as I detest maintenance and the people who benefit from a car which disintegrates over time.
Only one company has publicly stated how interested they are in making sure that cars last a LOT longer. The company is Tesla. EVs naturally have far less maintenance that normal cars, but Elon Musk has publicly stated he never intends to make money off servicing.

Actually it would be great to replace the rear mirror, and both side mirrors in one fell swoop. It would probably cover the blind spots, prevent neck sprains, keep your eyes and mind focused on the traffic ahead, make the car more aerodynamic, and give you a bigger more comfortable view. All of that is making you safer, comfortable, along with making the car more efficient. Even Tesla are campaigning to get rid of the side mirrors.
