Slow Motion

100MPH RC Car in Slow Motion

100MPH RC Car in Slow Motion

Traxxas gave The Slow Mo Guys its award-winning XO-1, a remote-controlled car that goes 100mph out of the box. Gav and Dan did what the folks who actually bought the $800 non-toy would never do: give it a thorough wrecking.

How CRTs Worked

How CRTs Worked

We’ve long since moved on to LCD and OLED displays, which render images a frame at a time, but for many years, televisions and monitors used cathode ray tubes. This slow-mo video shows how the picture was “painted” line by line using a scanning beam of electrons.

Bullet vs Prince Rupert’s Drop

Bullet vs Prince Rupert’s Drop

SmarterEveryDay looks at the behavior of the unusually strong Prince Rupert’s drop when subjected to the firepower of a bullet. The 150,000 fps slow-mo footage reveals some truly fascinating properties as shockwaves travel through these tadpole-shaped glass droplets.

Combustion Tube vs. iMac

Combustion Tube vs. iMac

The Slow Mo Guys went to Purdue University to see the school’s combustion tube – a device used to measure the speed of flames and explosions – obliterate an old iMac with one hell of a push. That lightning quick flame was uh, fire.

Red Hot Hydraulic Press

Red Hot Hydraulic Press

(PG-13: Language) The Hydraulic Press Channel steps things up, as they augment their mighty crusher with a red hot metal press tool, so objects aren’t merely flattened, but ignited or melted as they meet their makers. Watch the thermal camera footage here.

Ultimate Car Brake Test

Ultimate Car Brake Test

(PG-13: Language) The husband and wife team behind the Hydraulic Press Channel have branched out to take on more destruction porn of the non-hydraulic kind. Here they are going ham on one of their beat up Fiesta’s brake discs. Skip to 4:16 for the climax.

Football vs Face 2.0

Football vs Face 2.0

Nearly 6 years ago, Dan of The Slow Mo Guys got smacked in the side of the head with a soccer ball in the name of YouTube fame. Now, the guys got their hands on a much better camera, and can show off the painful collision up to 1120 times slower.

Fun with Tesla Coils

Fun with Tesla Coils

Destin of SmarterEveryDay wanted to learn about Tesla coils. Imagine his delight when he found out that Cameron Prince, one of the world’s biggest Nikola Tesla fans, was his neighbor. Cameron showed Destin his 9ft Tesla coil and a sick Fallout-ready Tesla coil gun.

SlowMo Fallout Kills

SlowMo Fallout Kills

(Gore) Corridor teamed up with The Slow-Mo Guys to create this Fallout fan film which combines slow-motion footage with gory special effects as Gav sets out in the wasteland on a bloody quest to quench his thirst with some Nuka Cola.

Magnets in Slow-Mo

Magnets in Slow-Mo

TaoFledermaus was playing around with some small magnets and decided to see what their movements would look like when captured at 4,000 fps with a prototype Chronos 1.4 camera. The resulting video reveals some of their strange and wonderful behaviors.

Bullets vs. Propeller in Slow Motion

Bullets vs. Propeller in Slow Motion

The Slow Mo Guys promote Battlefield 1 by looking at how the guns mounted in front of some World War I planes were able to avoid shooting through the planes’ propeller. Then they turned off the synchronization gear and let the propeller have it.

Slow-Mo Guys x Hydraulic Press

Slow-Mo Guys x Hydraulic Press

Ever since the Hydraulic Press Channel broke big, people have been clamoring for a Slow-Mo Guys collab. While that has yet to happen, Gav and Dan headed to a machine shop with their high-speed camera and exploded a deck of playing cards at 28,500 fps.

Leg Waxing in Slow Motion

Leg Waxing in Slow Motion

The Slow Mo Guys filmed themselves waxing off patches of their leg hair at 28,000 fps. Our hairs really don’t want to come off that way. Props to Gavin for the realistic sound effects. We didn’t ask for this, but now we want to them to redo it with a macro lens.

Underwater Explosions in Slow Motion

Underwater Explosions in Slow Motion

The Slow Mo Guys played with waterproof fireworks in a small tank to see how they would react with the water underneath and at the surface. At 120,000 frames per second, the world turns into CGI. A world that takes up 24GB per second.

How Phantom Cameras Are Made

How Phantom Cameras Are Made

The Slow Mo Guys built a career on the backs of Vision Research’s Phantom high speed cameras. So it’s only fitting that the YouTubers checked out the company’s factory in Wayne, New Jersey to see how the cameras are assembled.

Hammer vs. Mirror

Hammer vs. Mirror

The Slow Mo Guys crank their high speed camera all the way up to 120,000 fps to capture the precise moment of impact between a flying hammer and a mirror, which creates a shockwave which is virtually indiscernible at slower frame rates.

Deconstructing a Burger

Deconstructing a Burger

A burger’s ingredients fly in mid-air separately before landing on top of each other. Sounds simple and natural right? Director Steve Giralt takes us through the astoundingly complex process and the cutting edge technology that he used to create the clip.

Slow Dance Picture Frame

Slow Dance Picture Frame

This unique display piece makes objects placed inside of it appear to move in slow motion. The trick is the use of an electromagnet and strobe lights that blink so fast you can’t see them. It only makes sense that it was designed by Time Warp host Jeff Lieberman.

LEGO Plane Crash Slo-Mo

LEGO Plane Crash Slo-Mo

The Slo Mo Guys turn their attention to a kind of destruction that isn’t permanent, this time building a jumbo jet out of LEGO then smashing it in front of their high-speed camera. The devastation was impressive, but the only real consequence was picking up all those bricks.

Yo-Yo Slo-Mo 2

Yo-Yo Slo-Mo 2

Beyond Slow Motion follows up on their previous video of yo-yo fanatic Ben Conde as he continues to turn a simple piece of string and a butterfly wheel into a living work of art. We love the water shot at 2:46.

Friction Welding in Slow-Mo

Friction Welding in Slow-Mo

While much welding is done by adding molten hot metals with a torch or electrical current, friction welding creates strong joints by rubbing metal together at a high speed. Here, two blocks of titanium are merged into one. If you thought that was cool, check this out.

Exploding Glass in Slow-mo

Exploding Glass in Slow-mo

Many of us use Pyrex glassware in our kitchens. The stuff is great, but physics make the stuff incredibly dangerous should it experience a dramatic temperature change. Gav and Dan show us what happens when the glass explodes, at speeds up to 343,900 fps.

Exploding Spray Paint in Slow-Mo

Exploding Spray Paint in Slow-Mo

The Slow Mo Guys make a big old mess, as they shoot, hack, and smash open a bunch of cans of spray paint in front of the lens of their high-speed Phantom Flex camera, and narrowly avoid getting paint all over its expensive lens.

Potato Gun Explosion in Slow Motion

Potato Gun Explosion in Slow Motion

SmarterEveryDay made a transparent potato cannon that can be ignited from the back or from the middle of its combustion chamber. He then captured it in action at 25,000fps to teach us about explosions and rarefaction. And to make the best Audible commercial.

Molten Copper vs. Dry Ice

Molten Copper vs. Dry Ice

There’s something hypnotic about Tito4re’s slow-motion video of molten copper being poured onto a block of dry ice. While the copper eventually defeated the dry ice, along the copper seemed to take on a life of its own.

Fake It ‘Til Your Face Hurts

Fake It ‘Til Your Face Hurts

Cullen Melton tried the no look three-point celebration popularized by some of the NBA’s sharpshooters. But he bombed harder than Nick Young did. This is Dude Imperfect, and we call this the Soviet Russian Trick Shot.

Corn Drill in Slow Motion

Corn Drill in Slow Motion

The Slow Mo Guys take on the corn drill challenge, where you try to eat an entire corn on the cob as fast as possible by sticking it to a power drill. Don’t worry, that’s just ketchup. No flesh or hair was lost.

Posing Inside a 6ft. Balloon

Posing Inside a 6ft. Balloon

The Slow Mo Guys celebrate the 5th anniversary of their biggest hit with a new giant balloon video. This time Dan somehow managed to step inside a 6ft. balloon and struck a pose while waiting for it to be overinflated. Skip to 4:13 for the festivities.

Shooting at Capt. America’s Shield

Shooting at Capt. America’s Shield

Gun enthusiast Jerry Miculek couldn’t get their hands on actual vibranium, but they did manage to make a life-size version of Captain America’s shield out of titanium. Watch Jerry shoot the shield with .45 ACPs in slow motion.

Paint on Drums in Slow-mo

Paint on Drums in Slow-mo

The Slow Mo Guys’ latest paint experiment involves powder paint and a drum kit. The 2000fps clip is really neat because it showed the instruments’ surfaces vibrating multiple times.

Skateboarding on Fire

Skateboarding on Fire

A team of talented and thrillseeking skateboarders literally set their boards and ramps on fire, then performed a variety of cool tricks in front of the watchful lens of BeyondSlowMotion. Needless to say, don’t dare try this at home.
