1000 Paint-Covered Mousetraps in 4K Slow Motion - The Slow Mo Guys


After about 10 hours of setting mouse traps like an absolute Billy no mates, Gav sets off a nice fat colourful chain reaction that we can all sit down and watch together like a nice big slow mo family. This video is sponsored by Google One. one.google.com

    Glad I didn’t forget to record it. As with the last bunch of videos, I am solo because Dan cannot fly to the US at the moment due to Covid. He is however continuing to make excellent progress on his underground tunnel. Last I heard he was underneath Cornwall.

    @Nobody else but me Buddy, you’re not hearing the good advice I’m offering up. How receptive do you think I’m going to be to what you say when you start your message by calling me a “pre-programmed sheep?” Think about it... if you want to bring people to your side, it will do you worlds of good to not say insulting things. Makes sense right? I’m only trying to help 👍🏻

    @BlockParty!OK well, you're coming across as a pre-programmed sheep. Since most people are and are incapable of thinking for themselves, we are all going to eventually lose the freedom we have to pursue what does sound fun. By the time people like you wake up, it'll be too late. Just ask anyone who has escaped any communist country.

    @Nobody else but me ok. Well, you’re coming across in a somewhat erratic manner. If you want to engage your audience in a way that keeps them engaged and willing to listen to what you want to say, try dialing it back a few notches and come across more relaxed and confident. I’m not interested in contesting your facts because I don’t have time and it doesn’t sound too fun. I would just encourage you to triple check them considering the amount of bad information out there that is pretending to be facts. Take everything with a grain of salt. 👍🏻. Have a good rest of your day.

    @BlockParty! I'm not talking about perception. I'm talking about documented, unconstestable facts. Also, I am not at all capable of taking away your freedom in any way at all, so don't even THINK of accusing me of doing so. My posting here, no matter what I say, cannot affect you one bit unless you let it. YOU are in control of your life and that's how it should be. But I'm not your enemy. The evil people who now control the world ARE.

    @Nobody else but me hey now. Let’s be respectful. We are all free to perceive events in our own individual way. I respect your freedom to perceive them the way you do and even empathized with you. Please don’t attempt to take away my freedom to perceive them the way I do, or be disrespectful if I see them differently. That’s fair isn’t it?

    I like google cloud, but honestly - for large data projects i use resilio, it works by syncing a folder (of any size) with any number of peers (it's based on P2P - just like torrents, it optimizes fastest data transfers), it's my little magic trick with large video projects and such. I just give the access codes to my client, and they're constantly updates with new data, any time I need to send them something, it helped me MASSIVELY. And also it's free! You just need your own hard drive and the client needs their own space or hard drive. But, yeah, I also use google, mainly for docs though. Cheers Gavin, amazing project as always!

    You DO know this has been done before? Like, way back in the 1950s!?!? Disney, of all things, illustrated the principles of chain reactions in a short movie called "Our Friend the Atom 4 of 5 - Nuclear Reactions", where they put two ping pong balls each on a series of mousetraps, to illustrate how released neutrons hit other atoms and THEY release neutrons, etc. Quite fascinating, for its time. They ALSO used slow-mo when they played the reaction series a second time. I remember my dad telling me about it in the '60s, and then finally seeing the actual video, filmed in a room with mirrored walls, was pretty amazing for its time. Yours was, however, definitely the more colourful of the two sessions. But I can't help wondering how yours would've looked: A) in a more enclosed space to contain the flying traps, and B) having ping pong balls IN ADDITION to the coloured powder. THAT would've been awesome!! The Disney people had their mousetraps placed at random angles to each other with space between them all; yours are neatly lined up... more "energy dense", as it were. 03:07 - You called it "about a thousand". From what I can count on the screen, you seem to have an array of 30 rows times 15 wide.... a mere 450 or so. (YOU didn't count 'em?) I'm visualizing a setup of about 50 x 50 mousetraps square (total: 2,500), edge to edge, like yours, but touching (or nearly) on all four sides, with a couple ping pong balls AND coloured powder on each trap, in a small space only slightly larger than the floor space used by all the mousetraps, with a ceiling about 6 feet or so above them, forcing the released kinetic energy to remain focussed within that space. THEN film it at several speeds as the first ball is tossed into the traps zone! It would be a landmark in awesomeness. I'll even come down there and help set traps, just to see this thing live!

    I recently had a great idea. You did the gun race video where all modern cartridge style guns were racing (actually thier bullets). How about a lock time race. Lock time is the time from pulling the trigger to actually firing. It is definitely slower with the only technology like match lock and wheel lock.
