Stunning 1000-frames-per-second Slow Motion

Image credit: 

A demo reel for the I-Movix SprintCam V3 HD has been making the internet rounds this morning -- the SprintCam is a super-high-speed video camera, allowing some of the slowest slow motion I've ever seen. In this demo, we see footage from a rugby game -- including cheerleaders, firebreathers, pom-poms swishing, and some actual rugby -- shot at 1000fps, or more than 40 times slower than realtime. The final shot shows a block of rippling red Jello, and it was recorded at a shocking 2500fps. Check out the mesmerizing super-slow-mo! (Note: for the HD experience, play the video at Vimeo.
