Test Your "Engineering Eyeball"

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by Mike Zenor, Jan 22, 2010.

  1. Eyeball Engineers: We all know them, the guys who have the uncanny 6th sense for judging angles and diameters and distances without resorting to tools.

    How good is your engineer's eyeball? Here's a cool online test.

    Pretty damn cool! My right angles were off, read the explaination and found my display was set different. Everything else I did good on!

    Wow that was fun, 5.04, up in the best range range but below the really great score.

    Thanks Mike.
     
  4. Just a little tricky with only one good eye. Right in the middle of the pack.

    thats pretty cool - 5.40 - the triangle equidistance part was my worst part
     
  10. I played it about a half dozen times, the best I could manage was a 4.42.

    I only did it once this time, but I got 2.41.

    being an engineer, I figured out how to cheat part way thru it

    5th best out of the last 500.

    Must be all the years of staring at the CAD tube.

    I was 1.91 after the first round, but got a final 2.41 without cheating.
    Got a few bullseye and slipped twice - Chris RR
