Hitting Jell-O with a tennis racket gloriously slices it all up

Tennis racquets are excellent at turning objects—namely, tennis balls—into blobs because the strings have just the right amount of give to absorb a bit of punishment. What’s even cooler though, is when something—like Jell-O—goes straight through the webbing and gets cut and sliced and chopped into jiggly flying… »9/30/15 4:34pmWednesday 4:34pm

Watch deadly animals attack in slow motion

Chomp! Snatch! Snap! Attack. Here is a wonderful collection of killer animals from BBC Earth Unplugged showing the animals’ unique attacking methods attacking in slow motion. You’ll see owls and crocs and chameleons and praying mantises and others go through their specialty in all its detail. I think the chameleon is… »9/23/15 7:28pm9/23/15 7:28pm

Watch bare skin get tasered in painful super slow motion

This is a little bit gross but if you were ever curious as to how a taser works, just watch it shoot out in super slow motion. The electrical cartridge jumps out of the gun in an explosion of confetti (the confetti has a unique serial number), breaking down the door and then swimming through the air to latch onto the… »9/11/15 9:33pm9/11/15 9:33pm

A bomb of matchstick heads exploding in slow motion is like fire rain

What happens when you light 6,000 matchstick heads (that is only the tip of the match)? Basically a huge fire bomb explosion that looks like it’s raining fire. The match heads all ignite and burst a super tall flame in the air and then the match heads start flying everywhere and when it falls to the ground, it looks… »8/23/15 9:00am8/23/15 9:00am

Seeing a ladybug take flight in slow motion is actually quite surprising 

This is just so cool. I love how the dotted red shells split and then the wings slowly swing out and then begin to flap and the ladybug takes flight like some sophisticated alien space ship that’s ready to swarm together. It’s also really cool to see this angle of a ladybug taking flight because it’s so different than… »8/19/15 10:30pm8/19/15 10:30pm

Seeing a gun fire at 73,000 FPS is absolutely definitely the most incredible thing

Wow. Ten thousand wows couldn’t even begin to explain how much amazement and pure jaw dropping wonder that I’m feeling after seeing a gun fire off a shot at 73,000 frames per second. We’ve seen bullets and other guns get shot in slow motion before but not anything like this, the visible force and pressure and… »8/17/15 9:45pm8/17/15 9:45pm

Seeing people's faces get blown by air in slow motion is hilariously absurd

Silly! Fun! Absurd! That’s what this video by ScottDW is and it’s just so good. We see a bunch of people get smoked by a furious air blower in total slow motion so that you can see their skin try to escape their face. It’s so goofy and completely hilarious to see the weird faces that pop up. »8/15/15 11:00am8/15/15 11:00am

Beautiful video of beautiful birds flying in slow motion

Birds being able to fly is Mother Nature’s ploy to make us all jealous. There are few cooler abilities in the real world. What else even comes close? Being able to hold your breath really long? Change colors? Grow back a chopped claw? Flying tops them all. Here’s a collection of birds flying in slow motion just to… »7/29/15 6:16pm7/29/15 6:16pm

A lightning storm captured in slow motion is like an electric ballet

Even as a little kid who wanted lightning to strike me so I could get superpowers, I’ve always loved seeing the electric bolts get speared down from the clouds. Seeing lightning was always cool, it was the lagging and crackling thunder that was the scary part of any storm. That’s why this video of slow motion… »7/24/15 12:47am7/24/15 12:47am

Watch a giant water balloon explode in slow motion with a man inside it

It’s always fun to see water balloons explode in slow motion because you get to see the skin of the balloon peel back and then actually get a glimpse of the water suspended in the air for the briefest of moments. So it’s even more fun when the water balloon is comically huge and a person is inside said comically huge… »7/22/15 8:30pm7/22/15 8:30pm

Slow motion video of a 142mph tennis serve shows the ball turning to goo

A tennis ball is squishy and bouncy and totally perfect for slow motion fun. Watch as a tennis racket hits the fuzzy yellow green ball at 142mph in slow motion, it’s incredible. The more you slow it down, the more flattened and deformed and goo-like the ball gets. At a certain point, it looks like the ball has just… »6/30/15 8:00pm6/30/15 8:00pm

Shooting brown sludge from a cannon in slow motion is so much gross fun

It’s abundantly clear now that a slow motion camera is probably the funnest toy a bored suburban kid could ever ask for. Anything you do is immediately more gross, epic, impressive, sillier and just plain funner-er than real life. You could just load up a homemade cannon with brown sludge and ketchup and shoot it at… »6/26/15 6:43pm6/26/15 6:43pm

Watch a woodpecker bang its beak and head against a tree in slow motion

Man, that’s got to flatten out some brain cells. Slow motion footage from a Turkish TV program The Glory of Nature found on Reddit shows a woodpecker repeatedly drilling its beak into a tree. You can see the head of the bird jiggle and the shock of the hit reverberate throughout its entire body. But it just keeps… »6/19/15 3:55am6/19/15 3:55am

Look how amazingly still a hummingbird's body is when it flies

Here’s a video of hummingbirds flying in slow motion. It’s really cool to see how different the speed of its wings move versus the stillness of its body. It’s like the video is in fast forward when you’re staring at the wings but completely stopped when you just see the body. I’ll never not be impressed by… »6/17/15 8:20pm6/17/15 8:20pm

What happens when you pour water on an oil fire in slow motion

Really bad things happen. Though everyone should know this, here’s a lovely slow motion video reminder on what happens when you pour water onto an oil fire in an attempt to put it out: the fire gets even crazier because the water vaporizes into steam which expands causing it to spit out the oil which makes the flames… »5/26/15 11:07pm5/26/15 11:07pm

Slow motion footage of double barreled pistols firing bullets is crazy

Watch as we slow down time to see this guy fire off 20 bullets in just 1.5 seconds from two double barreled pistols. It’s a ballistics ballet that looks almost unreal at certain angles. The top down look of the guns firing is especially cool to see, like a first person shooter video game view only in real life. »5/26/15 8:40pm5/26/15 8:40pm

Video: Getting slapped with a hand of fire in slow motion is spectacular

There are a lot of cool things you can see in slow motion but few might be as satisfying as watching a hand on fire slapping a guy in the face. The face gets smushed in all kinds of ways with spit flying everywhere while the flames dance around all over the guy’s face and stays there a frighteningly few seconds too… »5/05/15 8:20pm5/05/15 8:20pm
