The Sonic Swing

This morning, we attended a Yale Community Breakfast.  Professor Robert Grober, Yale Physics gave a talk about the physics of a golf swing.  Who knew you could tell how talented an athlete was, simply by the resonance of their movements?  The mechanics behind his system are amazing. But the idea that we can learn and modify behavior from sound alone … incredible.

“He’s an academic physicist who invented a brilliantly practical device of focusing electron microscopes. His insight is that many can make much more precise adjustments by ear than they can by eye. Then he coupled that insight with his love of golf and identified a whole new method of learning…the learning of everything. Grober has reminded educators that they routinely forget to explore the whole spectrum of sensory perception that is integral to learning…he asks an absolutely fresh (and timely) question.
