Seat Belt Pretensioner In Super Slow Motion

Modern seat belts are a lot more advanced than they appear.

Match Stick Rockets In Slow Motion

Rockets are fun. But mini rockets are even more fun. There’s just something so entertaining about a tiny little rocket when it shoots off. After seeing Grant Thompson‘s mini matchbox rocket launcher, The Slow Mo Guys decided to try it out for themselves and record the action in super slow motion. Glorious!

Shattering A Spinning CD In Super Slow Motion

These days, it seems the CD is on the same path as the cassette tape. With digital downloads, online streaming, USB flash drives, and bigger and bigger hard drives, they just aren’t needed any more. So the Slow Mo Guys decided to say goodbye one last time to the CD by shattering one in super slow motion.

This is actually the slowest slow motion video the The Slow Mo Guys have ever captured. They spun a CD open at 23,000 RPM and recorded the smashing of it at a mind-blowing 170,000 frames per second. Good thing they wore goggles.

Byron showed off his impressive skills by shooting progressively smaller targets tossed into the air while a slow motion camera captured all the action. Mind blowing!
