Pretty (But Fake) Floating Ball-Pit Balls Video

May 16, 2011


This is a fake-ass video of a whole bunch of those Chuck E Cheese ball pit balls allegedly floating around in mid-air thanks to a giant electromagnetic and some iffy electronics stuffed inside each one. You can send it to your friends telling them it's real if you want, but it's not. It's really just an exercise in motion graphics for some film festival. Still, if you really want to believe they actually did it, you can, I'm just going to think less of you because of it. I can't help it, I'm judgey. Also: breaking out. I think it's all the stress! Or chocolate. Oooooooooor shaving with peanut butter. Huh? OF COURSE I STILL EAT IT AFTER, HAIR IS FIBER!

Hit the jump for the 'how did they do that?' in action. SPOILER: computer graphics.


Thanks to JBantha, andrew m and Lewis, who are all saving up enough to take a commercial space flight and watch balls float IRL. SPACE BALLS FTW! And to Battle Tank Bob, who noted, "balls are touching so it's kinda gay, but I thought it was interesting enough to share.
