Why does slow motion make everything look so much cooler? Well, it allows us to see some of the most incredible events on our planet in minute and precise detail, with truly spectacular results. From firing a gun underwater, to capturing a gloriously satisfying sneeze or a tornado of fire, slow motion makes everything better. Here are the most jaw dropping slow motion videos ever.
You see it all of the time in the movies, but here’s what it actually looks like when you fire a gun underwater.
Ingeniously designed by The Slow Mo Guys, this fire tornado is created by a surrounding circle of powerful fans, and caught on a 4K camera in slow motion with spectacular results.
This clip is a little bit terrifying, so we really don’t blame you if you can’t handle the amazing science behind a jellyfish sting.
This might make you think twice about getting yourself a tattoo…
You probably do this every single morning, but seeing it this up close and personal in such microscopic and slow moving detail is truly something else.
Check out Jackass’s Bam Margera using the slow motion phantom camera for the most ridiculous but satisfyingly stupid reason ever. Here are The Rocky Punches.
Bam Margera has an incredibly intense fear of snakes, so watching this would almost certainly give him a heart attack. Here’s a slow motion Puff Adder attack.
To be honest, we’re not really sure how ok we are with how often this guy is throwing his cat around, but the science behind the physics of how cats fall and recovers is pretty incredible.
That beautifully satisfying moment of release is perfectly captured in this super slow motion clip, until they actually sneeze and it’s pretty disgusting!
Non-Newtonian fluid doesn’t stick to the the usual rules of fluid dynamics, creating pretty spectacular results when it’s forced to move and change shape when placed on top of some blasting speakers. Check this out now.
Who would have ever thought that we’d one day have cameras powerful enough to capture the speed of light. Well, some scientific wizards at MIT have done just that and captured some pretty amazing footage.
Slowed down, sky diving looks like one of the most truly incredible things that we as humans can ever experience.
