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.

    I’d like to see how much damage could be done if you replaced 4 of the blocks with ballistics gel.
    If you really wanted to see some damage try an old gramophone record, the ones that were played at 78 rpm, “danger Will Robinson”.

    The intial cracks came at almost a 120° to each other, a confirmation that it is the most stable configuration to crack when there is an outward force from the centre. Learnt that when I was studying about hotspots.
