It took quite a bit of trial and error for The Slow Mo Guys to get two paintballs to hit each other in mid-air, but the final result was more than worth it. After all, explosions of paint always look sweet in slow-motion.
Because he hasn’t made enough dangerous things, Giaco Whatever teamed up with builder Kevin Lizotte to create a tiny cannon that’s ridiculously powerful for its size. The audio and slow-mo add to the drama, but we wouldn’t want to be on the business end of this thing.
If you thought that lighting 10,000 sparklers at the same time was spectacular, get a load of this video from JoyBlend, in which 20 times as much of the incediary mixture they put on the end of sparklers gets set ablaze. They cheated a bit, but the explosion is still awesome.
The latest from video maestros OK Go starts off with a bang, making a destructive mess in its first 4.2 seconds. The rest of the video is simply those same 4.2 seconds shown in super slow motion, revealing numerous details you surely missed the first time around. BTS here.
If we were ballsy enough to toss live ammo into a pot filled with flesh-melting molten aluminum, we’d do it wearing a firesuit from behind a blast shield. Not so for the Backyard Scientist, who turned up in cargo shorts and a Hawaiian shirt for this ridiculously dangerous “experiment.”
After teasing us with a tiny bit of video of his explosive experiment with molten salt poured into water, The Backyard Scientist walks us through what he did to facilitate the destructive blast, and ultimately concludes that it’s strictly a thermal reaction, and not a chemical one.
To celebrate his 2 millionth YouTube subscriber, inventor, builder, and mad scientist Colin Furze created a giant turning wheel, loaded with rockets, placed precariously in front of cases full of more fireworks. The explosive end result is as bonkers as you’d imagine.
