It's an exaggeration regardless. Your brain makes very complex calculations to help determine distances from an object from just a few frames of vision. So the egg and pouring tests are ultimately flawed, and intentionally screwed over.
The bowling and walking tests are also flawed for moving sideways. You only need to know which orientation is straight, and you can walk straight without looking at all. Distance from bowling ball tossing is again easily calculated from a single frame of vision.
Only the dancing is accurate, as we rely entirely on vision to know what moves to perform next.
The brain is too strong and complex of a computer otherwise. We easily adapt to our new situation based on traits we learn naturally growing up. Real computers can't adapt, so the entire concept is flawed from the start.
