Smashing A Car By Dropping A Huge Concrete Block From 30 Metres In The Air Is Stupid Fun

Video: Turns out, dropping a giant concrete block onto a car ends exactly like how you would imagine it would: The car gets completely obliterated and smashed to smithereens. Crash Zone pulled off this incredibly silly stunt and filmed it in slow motion so that you can see the damage in lovely, exacting detail. The concrete block pierces through the metal frame and sends shattered glass flying everywhere.

Watch A Hammer Blast Through A Mirror At 120,000 Frames-Per-Second

Video: This mirror being smashed into a million pieces by a hammer at a 120,000 frames-per-second is a true sight to see. The Slow Mo Guys are back at it, showing us some more insanely delayed close ups of shattered glass.

Time Appears To Slow Down Inside This Magical Picture Frame

Like the animated portraits and paintings hanging in Hogwarts and the rest of the Harry Potter world, Jeff Lieberman’s Slow Dance picture frame appears to rely on magic to make time run more slowly. But it’s science that gets all the credit here, cleverly manipulating what your eyes see.

A Bowling Ball Dropped From 45 Metres Is No Match For An Axe

Video: The best science always involves explosions and destruction, and we probably would have paid closer attention to our teachers in primary school if they did experiments like this. While it’s probably easy to guess what happens when a bowling ball is dropped on an axe head from 45m, the slo-mo results are still far more entertaining than reading a science textbook.

Watch Glass Explode In Spectacular Slow Motion

Video: Glass can explode, and seeing it happen in slow motion is damn incredible. The Slow Mo Guys pointed the Phantom V2511 high-speed camera at a Pyrex glass measuring cup that was heated with a torch and then doused in cold water to capture the exploding glass (something about the sudden temperature change isn’t good with tempered glass) and you can see just how fast it blows up.

The Most Cringeworthy Liquid Nitrogen Destruction Video You'll Ever See

We’ve seen everything from jelly to raw eggs get completely destroyed after being frozen with liquid nitrogen. But nothing comes close to being as cringeworthy to watch as Brent Rose taking a baseball bat to a 38cm silicone dildo turned into a frozen rock. Despite some interesting science at work here, some of you might want to look away.

High-Speed Footage Of A Mad Scientist Holding An Explosion In His Bare Hands

Video: If you’ve ever built your own potato gun, you probably don’t think twice about the explosions that launch the projectile — mostly because they’re hidden within it.

How Different Directors Use Slow Motion In Their Movies

Video: Sometimes slow motion is used to enhance action scenes. Other times it’s done to convey love between two characters. There are even times when it’s used to replicate using drugs. Or show off a superpower. Or show dread. Or capture someone’s last moment. The point is, slow motion is used a lot in films, for many different reasons. Here’s a breakdown showing how certain directors use slow motion in their movies.

How To Create A Rainbow-Coloured Pyrotechnics Show

Video: Winter is coming, and what goes perfect with dropping temperatures? That’s right, fire. This rainbow pyrotechnics show was put together with materials you can probably find at the hardware store.

Watch Lightning Creep Towards Earth In Super Slow Motion

Scientists at the Florida Institute of Technology recently captured a beautiful lightning storm using a new high speed camera.
