Let’s start out Sunday slow…. like reaaaaaaaaaallly slow… 10 million fps slow. As the saying goes: everything looks cool in slow motion; but this video of a ball hitting and breaking a pane of glass is doubly cool because it almost looks like a cinemagraph.
Filmed with a HyperVision HPV-X camera made by Japanese manufacturer Shimadzu, the footage is slowed down so much that the ball, once it hits, appears fixed in space while the cracks in the glass slowly expand outward like an intricate spiderweb from the point of contact.
We’ll grant you, it’s no bird of prey attacking a water balloon, but it’s still a captivating 25-second watch.
