We've spent so much money laying trans-oceanic internet cables when all we needed were alligator clips into the ocean!
@W_ldan lmao i mean sometimes we just learn dumb shiť from teachers and realise our minds are more capable.
@Le Parrain fromage yeah i guess that’s true, it’d be a complicated thing to actually figure out and implement in practice but in theory there definitely are ways it could work, good point
Slowest Internet speed possible xd
@Awareqwx Diamond Nah, you could use multiple access techniques like you have to do anyway with a wireless communication medium (WiFi, cellular etc.). You can distribute connections over different time slots, frequency slots or use different spreading codes like CDMA/UMTS used to do until nearly everything started using OFDM. This is hypothetically speaking of course, there is no way to overcome the attenuation without sacrificing bandwidth. If you use acoustic waves of low enough frequency they can travel pretty far through water, but you probably couldn't even transfer a kilobit per second. The carrier frequency has to be high for high data rate (that's why optical can easily achieve several Gbit/s)
@chantelle.mp4 In principle there is, you could always use frequency-, time- or code multiplexing like with any other communication medium, but not sure how much bandwidth you'd have available to work with. (For example any wireless communication is always sharing the medium with other devices if they aren't far enough apart from each other)
Watching this video helped me realize that my internet is actually worse than transmitting it through water.
This video helped me realize there's a website.
This takes the meaning of "You have dog water internet" to another level.
Makes me think of hot dog water , he should try hot dog water
@Wysiwyg - 👍
@Khaliil bin Ammar it's usually like "you're dog water at this game" as a trash talk that basically means you suck
I still don’t know the first level meaning.
i have literally never heard that in my entire life
He literally has insane amount of unbelievable topics to cover every day
@Master how you know that secret.
the mind of a scientist
@Marvin Reimer salt dissolves into ions in water.
@Master Boyfriend here 💪🏽 I don’t use parental restrictions.
@●Tanjiro Kamado-竈門炭太郎● attention seeker probably
Jeff-"Max why you weren't online yesterday?"Max-"I forgot to pay the water bill""What?"
@Covert cat me
That first line reminds me of Yahoo Messenger days when we used to wait for each other to be online, buzzing each other and stuff lol memories
😆 😂 😂
@Grimm Reaper sitting in my room and making Candice Nuts jokes to my imaginary friend and start crying after they get angry at me and stop being my friend while my family worries about my mental health
@Covert cat should have had your imaginary friend's name be Candice
"So i can surf thr web"Dads: 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂
“I cut this cable”Looks like you chewed through it 😂
That made me belly laugh omg 😂😭
Maybe he is secretly an alien
Question: If you were to add more salt, would it make the internet faster or will nothing be different?
This guy is over here answering all the questions we didn't know we even had.
When is my VPN gonna let me select “Pacific Ocean?”
It has to DETECT it first, so get moving, buddy!
"Why is your ping so bad?""Sorry i accidentally ran the router cable into my water line"
The metal pipe could help 🤔
This can happen naturally with cables in the ground being cut/damaged, they can have variable amounts of resistance and interference based on the amount of groundwater which translates to better/worse service depending on the weather. As some other mentioned though, please don't ever purposefully do this, interference ANYWHERE in the system can potentially f up a decent area depending on what you do.
no it doesnt
Well so thats why my internet works so well when i water the garden.
Gotta say, I love these experiments and such, they have really peaked my interest in science and just how things work in our world and the overall universe. Keep it up!
NASA: "accidentally dropped internet cable on the ocean"Everyone:
I am a CS engineer, i knew it would work but still 🤣 i was amazed to see it like a kid , your videos are always so engaging
Imagine if he just instantly short circuited the entire world’s internet…
"we add salt to this water"*Starts crying*
This is the most nerdiest and scientificest dad joke i have ever seen
Most internet outages are either due to technical issues, or digging accidents. If we had inspectors at every digsite, this could be prevented.
"Damn, why is the latency so damn high today?!"Meanwhile the neighbour with your internet cable :
Man you always take things to next level 🔥
This brings me back. Did anyone else have those little circuit pieces that you could arrange on a board as a kid? I remember losing the board and using a glass of water to transmit the electricity.That board was probably what got me interested in coding and engineering.
You talking about the cardboard circuits with the springs as contacts? Hell yeah I remember those, although as a kid I never actually got mine to work (it was supposed to be a radio and I never actually completed it o don’t think) but looking back I wanna get another one so I can make it work
I don’t know if it’s what I had but I remember the board had connections that were little springs that would hold the stripped ends of wire allowing you to make different circuits, radio receivers, etc. it was a really interesting toy that would really spur your imagination!?
@NNapples theres loads of them, the one I had was called hot wires
do you know what it was called?
The little planktons that finally get to watch TheXvid: thank you kind sir🙏
What if you make the salinity of the water super high by warming it so it absorbs the salt better, how high will the speed be?
He spent his day and loads of effort to make a dad joke. This is the man we should all aspire to be.
I wonder the max distance this would work at. Interesting that most underwater cables might have breaks but not far apart to disconnect.
"Aye bro your ping is trash""Sorry mate, usin a water dish for me cable"" *YOU WHAT* "
@Mohammad Saleh i mean he used it as a joke so i wont mind it.
Sorry mate don't have much salt today
@RobotAfk XD its actually an Australian accent
Please never stop doing these projects ♥️
I’m thanking Dr.STONE for the knowledge I got before watching this video. They made the internet and sent their wires through the ocean. So this is a great way to try that at home!
I like how the internet transmitted through water is still better than my internet connection
He went through so much to get it working just for a pun 😂
Imagine having a signal that can connect internet reliably and fast thru the ocean imagine all the free wifi from the sea on beach lol
The attenuation of the signal would suffer incredibly if you were to use this medium, but yeah saltwater is conductive.
That's so weird, I literally had a thought about transmitting data through the sea yesterday 😂
You'd look like an absolute boss if you found yourself in a situation where the cable was damaged and someone needed the internet desperately with no other solutions and you pulled this on em. Chances of a situation like that actually occurring is very low tho unfortunately lol
Fun fact: I live in Brazil and his internet going through water is actually way faster than my normal internet 🤡
That's awesome! But... As a radio nerd, it's terrifying to think of the sheer volume of radio noise that must be generating, like wow... You would struggle to use radio equipment around it is my theory, maybe something to test?
This is good news. It's a relief to know if there was a major flood effecting the world, we'd still have internet access
This should have come with more of a warning. I can already see someone shocking themselves doing this
I find it absolutely insane some of the stuff you do and the things you show us. Imagine this but on massive scales. The world could be changed in monumental ways. If we can do it at home we can do it on a hyper refined large scale and apply it to a truly massive number of things
@Marvin Reimer I didn't at any point say I had the technical answers but that wasn't the point or direction my comment took, again if you can't even understand that then I'm sorry. For your small mind
@Brandon Borges oh master then please elaborate your divine thoughts on this superior technology. How do you plan to shield your signal in water? How much freaking current do you want to blast through your node so you can barely get a shitty signal? I'm really curious now but let me guess, you won't tell me?
@Marvin Reimer I apologize you have such a small mind
The stuff is only insane because you dont understand it. This isn't doing anything good bro 😂😂
I had a slow internet connection (2mbits/s) for like half a year. But it varied a lot depending on the weather. Turned out the signal was transferred in partly through the soil, since some cables were damaged due to roadwork.
I love that science is essentially tha shit that you do when you are a kid, but with actual data, explanation and safety lol
Somehow even when connecting to the internet with water, his internet is still better than mine
Now splash the water and see if it gives lag. Blow bubbles in it!
absolute mad lad
Must be a shocking discovery hehehe
@Shiv Soni no
Prob gonna have a lot of packet loss
So this is how school computers were connected to the internet
Lol. Imagine spending years on sending internet through the ocean to make a pun.
Imagine being the parent of this guy when he was small lol
I l love the experiments this guy does.
This dude must be like the coolest dad to have ever. Lol
Next Video: So today we're gonna be testing if you can connect two wires via interstellar space travel. So first, you put 1 tablespoon of salt on the hyperdrive-
As a low voltage technician I'm just thinking how pissed the FAA would be to see this video lol! But seriously don't ever do this!
Oh wow. That's still faster than my internet 😂
now thats the definition of “wireless” im looking for
no WiFi is what you're fucking looking for 🤣🤣
Wireless as in bluetooth... hmm
@DuX gaming ratio
@SoCalSaf bravo !
@Lol • 10 Years and if you paint shit in blue, it doesnt become blueberry, if you have wires it cant be wireless whatever you do to it, also coax cable is ancient tech, same as water conductivity research...
There was once a time where that internet speed was faster than what I had.
Can you do a speed test before and after. Also can you test how far apart the wires can be in water
Alternative title:"Never replace your broken/damaged cables ever again"
So my internet goes off when "it rains too much", while this guy's internet LITERALLY goes through water!
Taking surfing the internets to a whole new level
That is literally the point of the fucking video...
@YourmomsnameisKaren did you see his profile name? ;))
@It's Not Time To Stop Don’t encourage these bad jokes.
The question I couldn't ask my teacher. What if we use ocean water to transfer Internet? It will be better than optical fiber.
We always knew it’s a series of tubes, now we know what’s happening inside
Some how when he puts his cable through water it is still better than my internet
I just imagine we're gonna be seeing small coaxial tubes on WISH claiming noise free Internet, high speed and security improvement with the power of salt water.
This guy never runs out of ideas! Stay Curious!
Wait so all those advertisements for “cutting the cord” showing literal scissors about to chop a cable were actually legit
So this is how I can talk to my friends over seas! Awsome
I am quite impressed he still uses a coaxial cable instead of fiber optics
"This one trick your ISP doesn't want you to find out"
@yamspaine to interfere with received signal, you need interference on the same frequency and that interference has to be at the common point for multiple addresses to be affected. So if a neighborhood is getting nothing for a channel range, you check the common point for that area and make sure everything is tight and undamaged, then you use scanners to find the interference source. Damaged lines in a house will kill the returning (upstream) signal but the ingress point must be in the main line to affect multiple locations
I don’t think they care with your 1994 dialup speeds.
I thought this was a joke about rocket engine ISP and it still made sense
@Zack Davis I was just warned about something like that when I was a cable tech... I may have been not understanding something, but we had a few houses that could not get certain channels and we suspected neighbor houses.
@yamspaine that’s not how that would go down. The most noticeable thing affected would be the upstream bandwidth. The noise floor would elevate significantly and it would affect the entire node. For the broadcast channels to be affected there would have to be a large source of RF noise transmitted near the exposed cable line. I’ve seen an antenna hooked up to live cable and it didn’t cause a level of interference that could induce a fine
It's free floating everywhere and just needs a funnelled direction to catch it? Water is truly amazing🤩
The internet is literally the real life equivalent of the spirit realm... It's like there but it's not exactly together with the physical world...
I was a cable electrician. The copper wire has a small current running through it. The white stuff is called dielectric and actually carries the signal for cable and internet. Think about it as a train and rails. The copper wire is the rails while the dielectric is the train. The salt water helps the dielectric complete the signal. However if you cut out a section of the dielectric out and leave the copper wire intact there will be very little signal speed if any at all. It will in fact send a signal to the cable provider there's a problem in the line and a lineman will put a device on the tap (box on the wire that splits signal to houses/apartments/etc) that will last about 30 days. Then your cable and internet won't work well and you'll call for a guy like me to come out and fix it. I'll spend anywhere from half hour to 5 hours to locate and fix the problem before I take the device off. Depending on where the problem is located depends on the length of time it takes to fix. We usually start at all the fittings and replace them. Then run a test and see if the problem is fixed. If not we have to start checking lines, sometimes just replace lines throughout the house. Mice and other rodents are a cable guys best friend for giving us work, but we hate them as the damage is usually in the walls.
He took the surfing the web thing too seriously
My question is, how far can these cables be from each other and still work?
@Platerpus7 well yeah, salt conducts well
@Daan Offline salt water is a very good conductor
Well less than a foot away he was getting like 1994 dialup speeds so what do you think?
@GOAT OF DUTY I have optical fiber in my house so it's not possible in my behalf
@Hernan Pastenes why dont you test it yourself?
I like how the internet speed he has using water is the same as mines lol
Wait. So you can technically make oceans into a huge wifi box?
Bro just took dad jokes to another level 💀
His upload speed through water is stronger then mine most days lmao
Awesome experiment. But I'm more than certain you had crazy insane noise ingress back feeding through the plant to the Node. 😂 Definitely not good for the neighborhood service.
I think I now understand the reason I'm such a science nerd
Does this mean we can just pump the internet into the ocean?
That moment when saltwater internet is faster than my office internet...
Puts a whole new meaning to micro waves lol
Sad thing is his water connection is still faster than my cable internet
Me: Man, my fibre optic line is so freakin' cool!Action Labs Guy: You were saying?
I'm not even gonna bother explain why this doesn't work in practice to those that think we can just put alligator cables into the ocean. Nice experiment but an expected outcome really.
Reject 4G/5GReturn to *_Water LAN_*
Can't tell if that's a pun or not.
Water LAN fuckin slew me
This implies that once upon a time we actually used Water LAN for everything.And I would love to be there
This dude has better internet when using water than I do on a good day.
This guy is freak of nature I love it mad scientist status
legend says he actually uploaded this video using his underwater internet
When they told you to surf through the Internet, this is what they meant
Would be interested to see the comparison of different salts. You could probably just derive that data mathematically from their different conductivity characteristics though. But that beyond me though.
it doesnt make a noticable difference, the amount of salt changes the conductivity of the water. Internet speed changes so much, you dont see a difference until the 3rd decimal place
Imagine having wireless internet throughout yourl home just fully submerged under salty water
What if we just had really giant cable dipped into the ocean instead of on the sea bed?
Came for the science, liked for the pun. It was a good trip
Today we’re going to see if we can use a toaster in water
Note: *DON'T DO THIS AT HOME.*
Imagine the noise he’s feeding back into the cable plant. Later that day he was disconnected from the plant.
Funny thing is, his internet speed while being connected in water is still faster than mine
Wow, that test result is even higher of my cabled internet connection
That internet is still faster than mine 😂😂
The most subtle product placement at the end there😂
