Interesting Super Slo-Mo Video Clips
September 25, 2005 9:52 PM   Subscribe

Interesting high-speed (super slow motion) video clips — including balloon videos (try water balloon thrown at face); videos of cans, bottles, and glass (try glass pane breaking); fun with food products (try egg drop and the amazing jello cube drop); and many, many, many others. (Please note: these are all smallish WMV files.)

Why does that moth bother me so. I see I am not alone.

This is so cool! The water balloon popping video is probably my favorite. It's neat to se how the water keeps the shape of the balloon for a split second before the surface tension is broken. I love slow motion video because it's a whole world that you rarely get to see. Thanks!

I was listening to the fight club soundtrack when I saw the moth one. Amazingly appropriate.

I do have to say that watching the jello cube snap back into place is something I need to keep on infinite loop.

Although this is oddly satisfying as well...

These are pretty much the videos that I would make if me and a bunch of my mates were turned loose with a high-speed video camera. Looks like they had to return it before they got to "face being kicked really hard". No matter -- I would not have thought of hitting a tomato with a 4x4.

Dr. Dave, I salute you!

The Can Stomp is rather dissapointing for it's can stomping action, but seeing the guy's sock slide down from the velocity makes it all worthwhile.

I love the Jello one. And the moth one vaguely reminds me of the goldfish at the end of that Faith No More video.

Sometimes still photos can be more interesting than video.

The pournography section is particularily... interesting.

I really want to FP that link - Damned n00bness. Probably a good thing since the server seems a bit slow at the moment.
