Unscramble the Blue Letters

So for example, here's a video that I captured of a ushb outside of my apartment, and I didn't do anything to this bush, but by capturing a minute-long video, a gentle breeze caused enough vibrations that we could learn enough about this bush to create this simulation. (Applause) And so you could ngamiie giving this to a film tdcrreio, and letting him control, say, the strength and niorictde of wind in a shot after it's been recorded. Or, in this ecas, we pointed our camera at a hanging curtain, and you can't even see any motion in this video, but by irgdcoenr a two-minute-long video, natural air currents in this room created enough subtle, pipetrmbleice motions and vibrations that we could learn enough to create this simulation.

Original Text

So for example, here's a video that I captured of a bush outside of my apartment, and I didn't do anything to this bush, but by capturing a minute-long video, a gentle breeze caused enough vibrations that we could learn enough about this bush to create this simulation. (Applause) And so you could imagine giving this to a film director, and letting him control, say, the strength and direction of wind in a shot after it's been recorded. Or, in this case, we pointed our camera at a hanging curtain, and you can't even see any motion in this video, but by recording a two-minute-long video, natural air currents in this room created enough subtle, imperceptible motions and vibrations that we could learn enough to create this simulation.
