A buddy sent me this hand and eye coordination test. He mentioned that he read it was used in the Air Force to help train fighter pilots. A good pilot should be able to last for 2 minutes. For regular folks they consider 18 seconds to be phenomenal. How long can you last?

I got 23 seconds after 15 tries.

I don't meet height requirements to take this test.

First off I consider 2 minutes to be complete and utter BS unless you've been training for literally months and your the worlds godliest pilot and second it's not really eye hand coordination training because it's not random it has the same pattern which means that if you try it for long enough you'll learn where to move the red square to avoid getting hit by the blue blocks. This test would be better if the blue blocks moved at random and not a set pattern

22.991 at the 3rd try...

but that wasnt my first time at this... a couple of years ago I did it a lot.. I doubt it's some kind of official test though..

Another thing to consider is what kind of computer run this.. With the proper software installed and running, I can go on for "minutes" !!! :p

my best time was right at 17 seconds but I'm using a piece of shit laptop mousepad... I'm sure that if I had a decent mouse I could do better

20 seconds on the 4th try.

This.

Give me a few hours to memorize more and more of the pattern and I might be able to get a minute or more.

It's late, I'm tired, and I'm watching a movie... and I was still able to get 10 seconds after a few tries.

I've got many friends in pilot training right now, and I'm heading there in Nov.

We dont use this.

haven't gotten over 22.

lol. Those airforce pilots are some kind of super-beings.


If they used that for screening and set the bar at 2 minutes, we would have no pilots.

Pattern isn't random, more of a memory test than a coordination test.

I noticed the same.

Best I did was like 10.5 seconds on my laptop with the pad. I will have to try it later with a mouse.

31 seconds. Took a couple practice runs to figure out what it's doing

Average is 19-21 seconds. I seem to take myself out by hitting a wall when trying to slide by a block real fast more often than a block actually getting me.

I noticed once you get past about 17 seconds there starts being something of a pattern to the movements. Key to getting high is probably just figuring that out.

I don't see how unless you browser is dog slow. I got the pattern down but it starts moving at lightspeed about 24 seconds and there's no damn way I can move the mouse fast enough.

Thers an easy way to cheat this game and just let the timer keep going!

things like that make my chest feel tight, I can't breathe!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

13.1 seconds after many tries.

The girl-girl pictures with Anna Kournikova and Megan Fox at 3:42 are worth the wait.

What's your best? I'm just shy of 25 seconds. I can see where to move next but I can't move the GDed mouse quickly or accurately enough because it's moving so fast.

I tried it a few times a few years ago. I got ~20 seconds. There wasn't much else to do while on the boat between flights. I sent it to my wife, and she got somewhere upwards of 35 seconds (and beat everyone in the ready-room). I haven't tried it again because all I have it a touch-pad here.

you can sit in the upper left corner till about the 10 second mark with a brief starting move elsewhere. if you can't make it that far, your not trying.

Yeah.

Start, move around for a second, then go to the upper left and wait till about 10 seconds. Then just dodge the bar a couple times and camp in the upper right corner till 19 seconds. Then it's on.
