Default Eyeball Engineering

This is for all of the engineers out there.

There always seems to be a guy or gal who can look at something and tell you that a line or an angle is off. Now you can try your skill at using 'the eye'. This is tougher than it looks.

It is not timed so, take your time.

It is fun to test your eyeball accuracy.

That IS very interesting. It was fun.

I'm thinking the quality of your monitor has a bearing on the results, as well as eye accuracy.

First try I misunderstood the one about finding the midpoint of the line so I had to try again. Second run through I got a 4.98.

Not too bad, could do better if I really tried - but hey, isn't eyeballing all about getting it done?

That was fun! 2.05 on the first time through, I'm now enjoying my 15 minutes of fame while my name is listed in the best of the last 500 games!

Oh my, it's almost midnight.
