Incredibly synchronized movements look like a glitch in the matrix
Ever saw something so synchronized you thought they're illusions?

There’s something oddly satisfying with watching things move together.

However, like other optical illusions, synchronized movement tends to become a bit baffling especially when done perfectly.

Maybe this is why we love watching military parades because the precision can be hypnotic. But do you think parades are the only things that can get this synchronized? Some of these are everyday things and they will make you question your reality. Is this real or are you watching TV?

Let’s start off with duos.

Moving together as a pair is easy. We see it all the time in dances or activities that demand precision. But for animals who rely on instinct, seeing them move together is impressive.

Just look at these two cats stepping at the same pace with the same foot. It’s like they’re remote-controlled toys like the duo of dogs in agility training.

To take things up a notch, have you ever seen two people do calisthenics together? It would take a lot of training to be able to do what the other is doing at the same range of motion and intensity. How about a pair of basketball players with identical dribbling paces and consecutive three-pointers to finish?

Some synchronized movements are required.

If your pace of work is matched or cohesive then the operations become much more efficient. You can see that with these construction workers manually shoveling cement to the fifth or sixth floor of the house. The seamless motion feels like a conveyer belt.

Meanwhile, one of the most satisfying things we can see on an icy road is the fleet of ice shoveling trucks. Like performance pilots, these trucks drive at the same speed, same gaps, and in a slant formation. A good show and a safer road? Don’t mind if we do!

Synchronized performances are a bit expected.

However, if you orchestrate the movements of over 100 people, then you have a kinesthetic marvel. You can see this in school-wide martial arts performances or school parades where the entire team creates a moving picture.

Some dance troupes wow their audiences with highly coordinated moves. Doing things at the same time can be hypnotic but moving as one while doing different things can be mesmerizing.

But can you do synchronized movements with yourself?

Apparently, yes. A content creator filmed himself from the same distance doing the same dance steps while wearing different shirts. Juxtapose all of these and you’ll get a dance group of octuplets.

Do you know what’s also amazing to see when done together? Tricks. Doing the routine itself is hard but having different people put in the same precision is out of this world.

Imagine two people on scooters who had to ride at the same speed and jump at the same height and flip at the same time. Mind-boggling, isn’t it?

But some synchronized movements are pretty creepy.

A person uploaded his experience with three identical cars stopping at the red light. Then, their signal lights were blinking at the same time as they were props in a computer simulation.

It just goes to show how amazing and satisfying synchronized movements look. And when you see something like that when you’re out, remember that it’s still the real world and that these people are just so good at what they do.

Watch this collection of synchronicities that look like they are glitches of reality.
