  • Hey it's me Destin welcome back to Smarter Every Day. This is Gordon. He's been doing the sound

  • for Smarter Every Day for years. This is the first time we've met, but it's in Peru. Pretty crazy - It's awesome.

  • He's from Canada. So what are we doing here? - We're fitting you up with

  • binaural microphones. So I want you to put that in your ear.

  • I'm gonna get you some windscreens, which make you look extra good.

  • - What are binaural microphones? - Binaural microphones are stereo microphones that take into account

  • the fact that you have a head, which most stereo microphones do not.

  • So your head is a big frequency filter, and if a sound goes in

  • this ear, not all the same frequencies are going to reach this ear.

  • In the same way, or at the same.. - That's because of the fatness of my head right? - You're very fat.

  • [laughs] - Umm. They're not gonna.. There'll be a time delay

  • and there will be a frequency change. - That's awesome. So I did a

  • back of the envelope calculation. If I have a sound coming in from the left it's a 500 microsecond

  • delay before it gets to my other ear. And they should be able to hear that? - They should be able to hear that as if it's

  • surround sound. If you put your headphones on.

  • surround sound. If you put your headphones on. - Oh ok. So go throw your headphones on

  • and we're gonna walk around Machu Picchu. The reason we're gonna do this

  • is because Jeff's up here taking the highest resolution photo of Machu Picchu that's ever taken

  • in a panoramic form and I'm trying to be productive with the time, so

  • go put headphones on right? - Right. - Alright. Here we go. Let's go check it out.

  • (Voiceover) Wait a second,

  • this is Gord. We have to make sure that your headphones are on correctly,

  • or it will ruin EVERYTHING. So let's test your left ear,

  • right ear, left ear, right ear, left ear, perfect.

  • Go.

  • (Girl in Peruvian Spanish) Thanks.

  • (Destin) You want a photo? - Perfect

  • - Thank you. - No problem.

  • (Male in Spanish) Let's sit.

  • (Man walking by) From here go to... Australia... (Woman walking by) From here go to Australia and then go to Asia?

  • (Destin in Spanish) Ready? - Yes.

  • - Thank you.

  • (Destin) Is good? You want another one? - No. Is perfect.

  • - Perfect? Thank you very much. Have a good one.

  • (Man in Spanish) Hello. (Destin in Spanish) Hello.

  • (Guy in Argentine Spanish) We have to check the trains schedule, right? (Woman in Argentine Spanish) yes, it's ready.

  • - Ok, so the trains schedule, and then we go catch the bus and we're good. - Yes, cause it doesn't matter which one we take, right?

  • (Destin in Spanish) Excuse me.

  • (Man in Spanish) The Word of God is like the rain. It bears fruit. Calm.

  • (Woman in spanish) Stay close to the rock, stay close to the rock.

  • (Man in Spanish, pointing upwards) We're going up there, right?

  • (Man in spanish) Hey, Hey, Hey. It's not permitted.

  • (Destin) So it's against the rules?

  • (Destin) So apparently I was in somewhere I wasn't supposed to be.

  • (Man in Japanese) But there's nothing inside here. That's due to the type of people that worked on this area.

  • The people working here were important. Well, they weren't 'important'...They worked for the princesses of the sun.

  • And you'll see that there are more steps here in more of a trapezoidal shape. This means that they're attached to a more narrow area...

  • (Destin) What's up man?

  • (Destin in Spanish) Crazy?

  • (Destin) Hello, how are you?

  • - Fine, how are you? - I'm well. How are you?

  • - Have a nice trip. - Thank you, and you.

  • (Man) Wow nice. [laugh]

  • (Destin, voice echoing in cave) Well, it doesn't go anywhere. It closes off; I don't know if the camera can see that.

  • Doesn't look like this was on purpose, though.

  • That's a good cornerstone went there, once upon a time.

  • If my wife was here, I would kiss her right there.

  • This is pretty cool. They terrace it off like this so that they can farm.

  • If the grade's super steep--like that over there--you can't farm, but if you terrace it off you can.

  • It's pretty awesome.

  • They said they had enough farming space to feed more than four times the capacity, people-wise, of Macchu Picchu.

  • What? Seriously?

  • Wow.

  • If you're hearing me breathing hard it's because I am.

  • Heh, a broom.

  • Check out the stones above the windows. It's pretty heavy.

  • So what do you think this was for?

  • Keeping a vase or something here?

  • (Destin in Spanish) Goodbye. (Woman in Spanish) How do you fire the flash?

  • - What? Flash?

  • Sorry, my spanish is very bad.

  • - How do you do it? - I don't have a flash.

  • - ... Picture? - Yes.

  • Is it good? - It's good.

  • Oh wow.

  • (Tour guide in Spanish) A few minutes of explanation, then some pictures. ok?

  • Hi walking camera. (Destin in Spanish) Hi.

  • (Destin) Hey, is the red light still blinking up here? -Yep. - Great.

  • (Destin) How's it going.

  • Oh, man, they even had running water! [laugh]

  • (Destin) How's it going? (Woman) Hey! Good, good.

  • (Destin) Is that a Red Sox fan?

  • - No... - Nope? [laugh]

  • I'm in some jungle now.

  • (Destin in Spanish) Good afternoon. (Woman in Spanish) Good afternoon.

  • (Destin in Spanish) Funny? [laugh]

  • (Destin) Hello.

  • (Women) Hello.

  • (Destin) Oh, llamas.

  • (Man in Brazilian Portugese) Over there people are climbing down.

  • (Destin) Excuse me.

  • (Man in Spanish) Hey look. Look at the mister with the camera, look at his camera.

  • (Destin in Spanish) Hi. (Kid in Spanish) Why is he carrying a camera?

  • Llamas are bigger than I thought.

  • Here, you want some grass? [laugh]

  • (Man in spanish) Greetings.

  • So apparently I wasn't supposed to walk across that field like I did earlier.

  • (Woman) Hi.

  • Um...That is not the way. Hello? Hello? It's not the way.

  • (Destin) It's the wrong way. Yes. Thank you.

  • Go ahead. You first.

  • (Man in broken english) Mister please,

  • it's down, it's going down.

  • (Destin in Spanish) That way?

  • (Destin) I'm in trouble again.

  • (Destin in Spanish) Which direction, Sir?

  • (Destin) Yeah I'm in trouble again.

  • (Destin in Spanish) Which direction, Sir?

  • Yes. There?

  • How many years have you worked here?

  • (Man in Spanish) 8 months, nothing more.

  • - 8 months? Only 8 months!? Nine?

  • - Is it fun? - Yes, yes.

  • - Which part is your favourite? - All of it!

  • - Everything? The people?

  • - Good, thank you.

  • (Destin in Spanish) Hello. (Man in Spanish) Hello.

  • (Man in German) There he is again!

  • (Man in Spanish) Speak english? - Sorry?

  • (Destin in Spanish) Yes. (In English) - Do you just push a button for that? - Yeah. I'm getting audio.

  • Just like I hear it.

  • And this is a camera. - Really? - Yeah. - That's awesome.

  • - It's pretty cool. - A lot better than this. - No, no, no! It'll be on YouTube, Smarter Every Day.

  • - Smarter Every Day. - Yeah, check it out. - Okay I'll do that.

  • -Where you from? - Kansas City, Missouri. - Cool, I'm from Alabama. - Alabama?

  • - Yeah, with a banjo on my knee. - Alrighty!

  • - Take it easy! - Smarter Every Day? - Yep! - Okay, I'll do that.

  • [Women cat calling]

  • Getting cat calls

  • (Man in Spanish) Camera?, That's a camera? (Destin in Spanish) On my head, yes.

  • (Man in English) Haha, it's very curious, i never saw one like this. (Destin) Yes. - Where are you from?

  • - Alabama, America, Estados Unidos. - Wow. Wonder place. (Destin in Spanish) Yes.

  • Oh, this is bigger.

  • Wow. I'd sleep in there. It's like a fort.

  • The Incas were very advanced in their ladder technology.

  • So I have to get up there.

  • Where the cameras are. I see the Gigapan sweeping...

  • So... Wrong way.

  • You can see without mortar, just the stone on the stone, the high quality of the construction. The Inca used...

  • That's a big rock.

  • Well, this concludes your Machu Picchu experience. We saw llamas,

  • we got whistled at by girls, which never happens. That actually happened.

  • - You got whistled at? - Yeah, that never happens. - You should wear that everywhere.

  • - I told them. I was like, look, I'm married. None of that. Cut it out.

  • But it was awesome, so I hope you enjoyed it. Get smarter every day; please subscribe. Have a good one

  • Check out the thing on my head! [laughs]

  • Whoo! That's was harder to do... Hey, I walked across the...

  • I actually walked across the green plaza. I didn't know I wasn't supposed to.

  • - Right in the middle of it?

  • - Yeah, I walked across the plaza, I just jumped straight down. They weren't happy about that. I got screamed at.

  • - Really? That green plaza? You can't go across?

  • - Apparently not, but the entire internet gets to experience it now. [laughs]

  • - Hey, it's a Smarter Every Day Exclusive.

  • - Yeah. You get to walk across the green plaza at Machu Picchu yourself.
