The Slow Mo Guys are again once more, slowing down time. This time, it’s half 2 of one thing the boys did in 2021. Taking pictures at 90,000 frames per second and enjoying again at 25fps, they’re in a position to decelerate time to 1/3,600th of its common velocity. Which means one second of real-time is ready to be slowed down to exactly one hour. This presents a really distinctive view of the world round us and the occasions that occur in it.
Clearly, this idea proved well-liked final time they did it, in order that they’ve carried out it once more. Slowing extremely quick occasions down by 3600 instances makes it very simple to see precisely what’s occurring. Certain, 90,000fps isn’t fairly quick sufficient to seize issues like electrical energy arcing from a Tesla coil, however it’s nonetheless fairly quick and reveals some on a regular basis occasions in an entire new gentle.
Taking pictures with the Phantom TMX 7510, Gav and Dan are in a position to get 90,000 frames per second at round 720p HD decision. Certain, it’s not precisely 4K, however it nonetheless gives loads of element to allow you to see what’s occurring when fast occasions are slowed down a lot. Even with the comparatively low decision, you possibly can see particular person angle grinder sparks travelling at insane speeds, showing to nearly stand nonetheless within the air from one body to the subsequent.
At 90,000 frames per second and performed again at 25fps, time is slowed right down to 1/3600th of regular velocity. So, 1 second of taking pictures time turns into an hour. One second of slow-motion playback is 0.006944 seconds in the actual world. Which means with a 180° shutter angle, every body has an publicity time of solely 0.000139 seconds.
It’s good to see Gav and Dan tackling topics which might be comparatively tame in comparison with their common actions. Nothing was being blown up or shot at on this one. It’s simply on a regular basis life actions slowed right down to loopy speeds. Properly, I say on a regular basis life actions… Okay, maybe not the taking a soccer within the face factor, though for Dan, that does appear to be an nearly day by day exercise when he’s round Gav.
However who doesn’t love seeing Dan being hit within the face with a soccer?
