Spinning an Apple until it Explodes at 28,500fps - The Slow Mo Guys


Compressed air can be used to levitate rounded objects. Sometimes said rounded objects start spinning so fast that they give up on being round objects. Gav films all the action over 1000x times slower than real time. Check out KiwiCo.com/SlowMoGuys and get your first month free!

    After learning about femto-photography I'm wondering what would happen if that tech was used to capture proof of ghosts? People claim to see balls of light so wouldn't it make sense to find a Haunted Location and try to use femto-photography to capture one of these balls of light?

    Gav. FYI: The reason you feel as if something in your observations has gone missing is because it has! You flinched. Whenever you blink your eyes or adjust their direction, your brain edits that instant out of your timeline of observations. Personal observation: When I was about 15 and got my first glasses.... It turned out that before that I couldn't observe say anything more precise than say a degree of resolution. So what's the point in blanking out the movement when your eye has arrived at the new position accurate to a degree. Nothing! With the new glasses the vision was a lot better so for a couple of days I'd see the whole world shake and bounce around as my eyes were still "almost" pointing at the new location....

    What about the fact that, at 04:11, the apple tears verticaly in half, then the little piece to the left tears almost in the same "imaginary axis"?. As if there was an invisible vertical saw/knife that slices in 2 movements, first to the back of the room, then towards the camera. (Hope I made my idea/observation clear :P) PS: Pardon any grammar mistake, English is not my native language

    So assuming the apple is breaking because of the liquid inside it? Would make a great science project to determine if it's the liquid being pressed to the outside or the air pressure tearing at the uneven edges.

    5:16 this goes to show how insanely fast a cars engine moves. I mean u can clearly see how fast the apple is spinning and that’s only 6500 rpm. Compare that to the pistons in a car and that’s pretty average. Imagine the piston in your engine going all the way down and then back up again in the time it takes for this apple to spin once.
