Makes me wonder what I looked like this morning attacking that chocolate donut.
Neodynmium magnets and a high speed camera? It turns out it is, as the kids say, oddly satisfying. I was practicing with some macro shots with the Chronos high speed camera, using LED lighting and filming at around 4000 frames per second. I dropped some hard drive magnets and noticed the magnets behaved very oddly and unpredictably.
Joe Hanson from It’s Okay to be Smart and Dianna Cowern from Physics Girl met up with Joe DiPrima of Arc Attack to sear aluminum cans apart with a powerful electromagnet.

Watch a soda can rip itself apart in a fiery explosion at 11,000fps with a Phantom high speed camera. Running a current through a coil, produces an electromagnet. Turn up the voltage in this experiment, and make that current strong enough, and your electromagnet can rip a soda can in half. Or rather, make the can rip itself in half!
The Slow Mo Guys aimed their high-speed video camera at a spinning drill bit covered in paint. The result was pretty. Read the rest

The always-entertaining and informative Slow Mo Guys dumped some oobleck (aka non-Newtonian fluid) inside a speaker cone and filmed the fantastic results at 1600 frames-per-second. Read the rest
