Cool!: The Sound Of A Balloon Being Popped In A Reverberation Room Vs Echo-Free Room

Note: Keep your volume in check for the first pop.

This is a short video of a balloon being popped in a reverberation room (a room with walls that reflect almost all acoustic energy back into the room), then one being popped in an anechoic chamber (a room designed to completely absorb acoustic energy). The difference is staggering. Look at me -- I'm actually staggering right now. "That's not staggering, you're shuffling around like you've got a shit in the back of your pants." Yeah...I always wait till the last minute and I forgot the restroom on this floor is out of order. I'd wait for the next elevator if I were you.

Hit the jump for the video.

Thanks to Alexander The Grape, hands down one of my two favorite Otter Pops flavors.
