Spinning a Record to Pieces at 12,500fps - The Slow Mo Guys

  • Published on Jun 2, 2018
  • Gav and Dan take 1 piece of vinyl and spin it so fast it becomes about 50,000 pieces of vinyl. The results are obviously captured by a very high speed camera.
    Thanks to Vision Research for lending the Phantom v2640.

    It appears that the motor is oscillating in a back to front axis which seems to be imparting energy into disk and flexing it which is causing the breakup. I predict that it will spin faster if the motor can be secured correctly stopping the forward and back vibration of the actual motor.ut may also be some resonant frequency of the record that seems to flex in such an extreme way it creates fractures that allow the centripetal force to fracture it.
