Speaker Vibrations Ultra Slow-mo

Speaker Vibrations Ultra Slow-mo

The Slow Mo Guys covered a speaker with various colors of paint, then cranked up the volume to observe the patterns created in the liquid. Naturally, they captured the spectacle in front of the lens of their high-speed camera at 12,500 fps so we could enjoy every detail.

Slow-mo Paint Blast

Slow-mo Paint Blast

The Slow Mo Guys subjected themselves to a massive blast of paint, transforming the outlines of their bodies into a work of modern art. The 4K footage is quite spectacular as the colorful paints spray out and mix together on the way towards their intended targets.

Thomas Blanchard creates eye-popping visuals by spilling acrylic inks into a large vat, then capturing their movements in slow motion. In MYST, he introduces geometric and letter forms for the colorful inks to flow over with stunning results. Check out more of his work on Vimeo.

Artist Stuart Semple has devised a paint that is so black and so light absorptive that it makes objects look almost two-dimensional. It can even cover up shiny surfaces with a couple of coats, rendering them black as a country night. (Awesome lucky cat image via rainbrolly.)

Peeling a Car

Peeling a Car

There’s something that’s immensely satisfying about watching how neatly and easily this Plasti Dip spray-on car coating peels off in big sheets when you want to change the color of your car on a whim. The process starts at 1:15, and took about 1/2 hour in real time.

Nissan’s Glow-in-the-Dark LEAF

In an attempt to make its homely LEAF electric car a bit more interesting, Nissan Europe gave one a factory glow-in-the-dark paintjob – which we think would look even better on a Lambo. Sadly, there are no plans to put it into production.

While it looks like ordinary spraypaint, D.E.P. works just like dry-erase markers, letting you create temporary graffiti on whiteboards or windows. It erases easily with a paper towel. Too bad it’s only available in black at this point.

Heat-Sensitive Paint Job

Heat-Sensitive Paint Job

What happens when you cover a car with thermochromic paint and it gets wet? Something pretty cool, as shown in this clip of a Nissan Skyline that’s been pimped out with the stuff. It’s also great for messing with car wash workers.
