In the slowest slow mo video yet, Gav shows us the classic colliding droplets shot in liquid. Using a mixture of coloured water and milk shot at 5000 frames per second (200 times slower than real-time.)

I looked at other videos by the "Slo Mo Guys"

To Gav and Dan's dismay, viewer feedback indicates that Lloyd the cat is in fact the most popular member of the Slow Mo Guys team. So here is a short and sweet clip of Lloyd in action.

This one is for the Middies' next unit of inquiry into force and motion:

Gav and Jack went to a near by sandpit to show Jack doing some impressive acrobatics. He does a front flip at 2500fps (100 times slower than real time) and a back flip at 1000fps. Gav also tries his trick which is called "Jump completely upside down and then do nothing." Gav still has sand in his pockets.
Have a look at the Slo Mo Guys YouTube Channel for more fascinating slow motion videos, and see ordinary things through the magic of their slow-motion video.
