The Slow Mo Guys dusted off an old internet classic, but for their version of the destructive experiment, they captured it in front of the lens of their fancy Phantom Flex camera, so we can enjoy the carnage at 2000 frames per second.
Awesome Slow Motion
Builder and destroyer of things Giaco Whatever shows off his custom-made Airsoft weapon, which is designed to launch ammo at a ridiculous rate of fire. Here, he amps up the pressure, and launches a barrage of metal BBs at various objects, pretty much vaporizing them.
The Slow Mo Guys follow up an earlier video in which Dan managed to get everything but his head inside a giant water balloon. This time, he managed to get all the way inside of it before popping it in front of their high speed Phantom Flex 4K camera at 1000 fps.
One of the cooler LEGO Technic kits out there is the Porsche 911 GT3 RS. It’s simply stunning. But that didn’t stop the guys from c’t Magazine from taking theirs and smashing it into a wall, with the help of the German automotive safety group ADAC and their crash test facility.
When The Slow Mo Guys team up with Blue Man Group, you know they’re going to make a mess of epic proportions. That’s exactly what they did in this extended length video, as they used bowling balls to wreak as much havoc as possible in front of a high-speed camera.
The Slow-Mo Guys set up one of their more ridiculous stunts yet, packing a trampoline with 1000 fully-armed mousetraps, then Dan jumped into the middle of them. As painful as you’d think it might have been, The Backyard Scientist’s rig would have hurt much more.
The Slow Mo Guys filmed air pistol pellets being shot through deodorant sticks. The projectile is so fast, even viewing it at 120,000fps isn’t that satisfying. But at least we found out that you can both be invincible at airsoft and smell good with just one thick vest.
After building a car engine we could see inside of, Warped Perception split some model rocket engines down the middle and sealed them under plexiglas so we can watch them ignite. We think an acrylic tube would burn more accurately, but it’s still awesome to watch.
You’ve just trudged through a foot of snow to get to the train so you can head to work. But the blizzard is far from over. Nick Colvin captured this awesome slow-mo footage of a commuter train covering passengers with a deluge of the white stuff as it pulls into the station.
The Slow-Mo Guys ignore all the warning labels on a bunch of small lithium batteries, exposing them to fire, and turning them into tiny rocket ships and bombs in front of their Phantom high-speed camera. We can only imagine how nasty large batteries would be if they blew up.
Giaco Whatever’s razor-edged spinning top is already deadly enough – now he’s taken aim at a variety of new objects to shred – from making some egg salad, to getting toothpaste out of the tube, to blowing up butane-filled lighters. In other news, Barbie got a new hairstyle.
The Backyard Scientist adds a propane torch to his sweet rocket sled knife so he can heat the knife’s blade to over 1000ºF before launching it towards its inanimate victims at the end of the track. It didn’t stay glowing hot, but slow-mo rocket sled destruction is still fun to watch.
