Now You Can Explode Your Computer with an 8K YouTube Video

High-definition YouTube wunderkinds Neumannfilms has officially debuted the Internet’s first 8K resolution video, but it requires so much processing power that most any computer will crash trying to load it.

The content of the film isn’t anything too remarkable, but its creation is. The video was shot in portrait on two Epic RED Dragon 6K cameras and then stitched together to achieve a maximum 8K resolution. YouTube has technically supported this resolution since 2010, but never before has a video taken advantage of the insanely high setting, as it turns out most people don’t want to watch a spinning loading icon while their laptop gets hotter than the sun.
