View Full Version : Time Warp: Catching a Fist in Slow Motion



The Question

The following video is an excerpt from the Discovery documentary series, "Time Warp". Some cats at MIT decided **** would look really cool if it was slowed the **** down. And goddammit, ************, they were right. So they got guys to punch each other in the face. Excellent. Also, the vid features the Awesome duo of Kenny Florian and Mark Dellagrotte. Quite striking. Yeah.

That was pretty cool, is there another clip showing the punch to the face more?

Thoughts:

-it didn't show the punch to the face
-shooting fruit is apparently the most awesome thing in existance for .00004 seconds

Have they done an episode about the need for porn performers to wear eye protection?

Thanks for posting that video Tom Kagan. I was looking for it to put it up here, it was the first thing I thought of when I saw the ?'s video. Watching that guys hand always makes me a little nauseous.

I have seen similar videos of people getting punched in the stomach in super slo-mo and have to say it's much more impressive when they hit an overweight individual. You can see the shockwave travel so much better.

I've always wanted one of those super-expensive high speed cameras just so I can film mundane things with them and post youtube videos because everything looks awesome in slow motion

It would be totally fucking cool if you could hit somebody at regular speed, and the person reacted as if they were in slow motion.

BTW, Kudos on the slo-mo bitch slap.
