Splitting Bullets in 4K Slow-mo

For their latest experiment, The Slow Mo Guys perfectly lined up an axe with the barrel of a gun, and fired a bullet at it so we could see what it looks like slowed down. It’s cool, but it’s the custom two-way axe they built that produces truly satisfying results.

Full-Auto Tennis Ball Cannon

Full-Auto Tennis Ball Cannon

The Beyond the Press channel took a powerful Gardner Denver air compressor and connected it up to a simple rig they built for firing tennis balls. It isn’t particularly accurate, but we still wouldn’t want to be on the business end of this thing. Test firing starts at 4:15, but it gets better.

Water Jet Hamster Ball

How TVs Work in Slow-motion

The Slow Mo Guys turn their attention to the various ways in which television display screens trick our eyes into thinking we’re seeing motion, when in fact they’re either painting images line-by-line, or rapidly flickering between still images. They also fake us out with color.

Exploding TV in Slow-motion

Exploding TV in Slow-motion

Warped Perception aimed his high-speed camera at a bottle lined with alcohol, then lit it so we could enjoy the fire inside in glorious slow motion. Then, he stepped things up to nitromethane – the same highly-explosive stuff used in dragsters. Kids, don’t try this at home.

Wrecking Ball Super Slow-Mo

“Every video that goes by, the resale value of this place goes down.” The Slow Mo Guys did their best Man at Arms impression and tried to slice through lines of plastic water bottles with a katana. It’s not as easy – or safe – as you might think it is.

Rocket Knife vs. Water Balloon

Rocket Knife vs. Water Balloon
