Video: Cardistry is cool, but some of its best flourishes are often hard to follow. The hand movements are so small and quick that your brain barely has time to process what happened before the next trick begins. So thevirts decided to take things easy in a new video.

Video: Many of you may remember this slow motion video from a little over a year ago. The American Chemical Society has now taken this footage — shot at an astounding 4000 frames per second — to explain what's actually happening at the molecular level when a match is struck.
Super slow-motion footage turns even the mundane motion of a circular saw into a spectacle worth watching. Vision Research's Phantom cameras have long been the masters of the medium, with their absurdly high frame rate possibilities up to a million frames per second. And its monster camera just got even faster.
We already knew that hydrophobic surfaces are extremely fun — but they're even better in super slow motion. The Slow Mo guys recently paid GE a visit and shot some footage of their latest projects in their trademark super slow motion — including a hydrophobic coating GE is developing to keep wind turbines free of ice.
It's no secret that dogs plus great photography and super slow motion have the power to mend the wounds of the world. Who doesn't want more of that? You do. We all do. Here.
Best way to show off the iPhone 5s's slow-motion video capture? By using it to shoot Apple's new smartphone being destroyed at 120 fps. How delightfully meta.
For the upcoming BBC nature series "South Pacific," filmmakers rigged a TyphoonHD4 to shoot above and underwater HD in gorgeous slow motion.
newVideoPlayer("/slowmocam_gizmodo.flv", 506, 305,""); Sure, the Casio EX-F1 shoots great slow-mo footage for a consumer camera. But it can't touch the footage that the SprintCam V3 HD pumps out. Good lord.
Will lighters blend? Yes, they will. And the explosive results, filmed in slo-mo, have finally warmed me up to this otherwise inscrutable internet meme. Good thing we didn't try this at the Giz Gallery!
The Gadget: The Casio EX-FH20 camera, bargain brother to the popular EX-F1. It features 1000 fps slow-mo video, a 40 fps burst mode for still shooting and a 9.1-megapixel sensor, as well as good ol' 720p at regular speeds, all for just over half the price of the original slow-mo star. galleryPost("exfh20lightning", 3, "");
Maybe you didn't even realise that the hallowed Exilim EX-F1 super-slow-mo cam got a little brother, the new $US600 EX-FH20. We finally got to check it out today and it's definitely a winner. Slightly slimmer than it's pricier counterpart, it also has a cleaner UI making it easier for a novice to use. 1000fps slo-mo video looked great, and the 40fps burst mode worked well, prerecording images in order to capture the perfect moment, even if you have a slow trigger finger. It even has a slight bump in the megapixel department, 9.1MP to the EX-F1's 6.0MP. The EX-FH20 is just hitting stores, so check the gallery to see how it measures up to the EX-F1. And of course stay tuned for our full review. galleryPost("casioexfh20handson", 4, "");
newVideoPlayer("/discoverypunch_giz.flv", 494, 286,""); Overheard in a recent Discovery Channel producer's meeting: "Hey—here's a crazy idea: you know how videos of things happening in slow motion tend to blow up the internet? Let's make that into a whole show. And in HD to boot. Face punches, raw chicken exploding, champagne blowing its top (the more latent sexuality the better!)—that kind of thing. We'll start it off next week, and yeah, we'll put some pretty great interactive slo-mo videos on our website that can be controlled frame-by-frame. I don't know about you guys but I'm sold!"
