comment Is it possible to estimate the number of people in a room from a limited number of simultaneously recorded audio samples?
It occurred to me just now that electrical engineering might be a candidate site for this question as well. So if anyone would argue in favor of EE as being more appropriate for this question than this site, then please upvote this comment and I will move the question accordingly.

comment Do wide-angle videos make the first-person view seem slower than perceived in real life?
Ah. That makes sense! I did start thinking that way, about how it seemed a large image was being "crunched", but when I tried to reason it out, it seemed contradictory because our eyes have wide-angle views as well; my mistake, of course, was not realizing that a screen is only a portion of our field of vision (as you say, roughly 40-60 degrees). Do you know how one might "calibrate" a video so the edge velocities are accurate? And would such a calibration be an objectively computable number, or do you think it's entirely subjective (a purely psychological perception of speed)?
