Exploding A Rubber Band Ball In Super Slow Motion

February 24, 2015


This is a video from Slow Mo Lab of a firecracker exploding in the middle of a rubber band ball, filmed at 25,000 frames per second. For reference, that's 25,000 times faster than one frame per second, which is about how long the exposure took the last time I used a pinhole camera made out of a Quaker Oats can. I won a purple ribbon in an art show! Skip to 2:35 for the action. Still, as cool as it was to see a rubber band ball explode filmed at 25,000 frames per second, you know what would be even COOLER to see? The house of my mortal enemy exploding, not filmed at all, and with all evidence linking me to the crime destroyed.

Keep going for the video, but just watch the first 30 seconds, then skip to 2:35.

Thanks to Jody, who was one of the first people to come up with the idea of making a living off a Youtube channel with nothing but videos of things filmed in super slow-motion, but could never get the money together for a camera. Sucks homie.
