Interesting video, Dawinzi!
I wonder why, when it shows the parrot going through the laser light/mist, it's in what looks like B&W, when the rest of the video was shot in color?

Obviously they're just using a black and white laser!:D:p

I for one welcome our new parrot overlords!

Interesting article/video, thanks for sharing OP! :)

I had to laugh at those googles for the parrot. +rep to the parrot for thinking of safety. :beer:

Black and white lasers are for serious scientific research only. ;)

I suspect it was the high speed cameras they were using. Everything else was shot in color except the experiment itself. :p

That's what I figured too, although it would be cool to see that swirling mist in color.
I wonder which wavelength they used for this, 532nm maybe, using orange goggles?

532nm seems most likely to me. :beer:
