Bullet Time in Real Life: Impacts Slowed Down with High Speed Cameras

Combine a little shooting range fun with a camera capable of shooting a million frames per second and you’ve got yourself the basis of pretty hypnotizing video.

In the video above various rifle and handgun rounds are fired at a variety of materials–sheet metal, plate metal, gelatin–and captured in a halo of fragments and splatters. Have an equally enthralling high speed video to share? Throw a link in the comments!

Jason Fitzpatrick is warranty-voiding DIYer and all around geek.

You can follow him on if you'd like.
