Beeping bars

On 23 September 2013 at 14:45, YouTube user Webdriver Torso quietly uploaded a video. Now there are over 80,000 videos. Each of the videos has nearly the same format, cycling through 10 “slides” (numbered 0000-0009) over the course of 11 seconds. Each slide displays two rectangles: one blue and one red. In each successive slide, the rectangles change shape and position. New videos are still being posted.

In the video below a solid explanation is given.
