Can this incredible video be for real? Click the link below to be treated to a virtuoso performance by the gamer known as Arch0wl, who's clearly got the dexterity gene in abundance. According to the video's meta-data, this player is hitting 16 keys per second in a PC-based game of Stepmania cranked up to insane speeds.
Here's why we think it's real (and not just captured slow then sped up):
The progressive scan lines that run from the top of the monitor to the bottom of it never change their pace.
The music's pace never changes and the sound of the keypresses is spot on, indicating that it probably wasn't dubbed, at least not by an amateur.
Still, to be completely believable the the performer should have included a clock with a second hand in the frame.
