Another high speed video. This was towards the end of the evening when we thought we'd have to return the camera soon, so we just put a bunch of stuff on an aluminum plate and smacked it with a steel rod.
High Speed: guitar strumming
(11 Aug 2006 at 09:50)
Another video from the high speed lab. This one was taken at 5000 frames per second, so you see guitar strumming about 416 faster than real time. Look at those strings wobble! Mike also posed his coin flip video, and we'll have more soon.
I visited Mike in their lab today to try out the high speed camera that they're borrowing. We ended up spending three hours breaking various stuff and throwing water and soda on each other and making some great videos. Here's a nice one of my Dragon Fist technique, which can pulverize any salted cracker! (XviD codec required):
The video was taken at about 3000 frames per second, and is shown here at 12 frames per second. That means that my dragon fist pulverizes crackers about 250 times faster than what you see here. There are several more good videos, which I'll post in the coming days.
I was cleaning out my room today and found this two-part interview of Destroy FX in the very cool and beautiful Spanish magazine Serie B. It is fun to see my words (which I don't remember; the interview was long ago) translated so that I can practice my high school Spanish to try to figure out what I said. Esto es punk!
