Pretty neat, although his almost sensual descriptions of "fluid flow" coming out of smashed/shot things is kind of creeping me out.

Things getting shot by other things? Awesome.

Am I the only one that misses at least a brief description, instead of just a blind link?

Cool site, but from the name I almost thought I was going to see something a little more 'metaphysical'...

Send me $35,000 or the mayonnaise jar gets it, real slow-like.

When broken, a TV tube makes a unique sound.

My college has one of these cameras, and my friends and I hope to gain access to it this summer. Students have made some awesome films with it in the past:
Imagine a clown-like Uncle Sam with smeared oil makeup 'fronting' at the camera with a large automatic handgun, racking the slide, then tossing it over his shoulder, producing a quart of motor oil out of nowhere and guzzling it straight from the bottle held high above his mouth. In highly saturated color. At 1200fps.
Apparently the camera records to disk through a dongle attaching it to a Windows PC into a proprietary container format. And the software sucks balls.

Not the Zapruder film, again.
