Has gravity collapse upon itself, distorting the entire temporal realm and melting the whole world into pudding? No, this guy just got an email on his phone — and some serious vibration — while he was trying to snap a pic.
There’s a pretty-simple explanation here: the “rolling shutter effect”, which has brought us some nifty bizzaro shots in the past. You see, when a camera takes a picture line by line, the quaking lens shifts everything around, resulting in this bendy jell-o scene. If you want to recreate the phenomenon, get a friend to message you at the precise moment you hit your phone’s shutter. Shouldn’t be too tricky! [Reddit]
