Spinning a Record to Pieces at 12,500fps - The Slow Mo Guys

  • Published on Jun 2, 2018
  • Gav and Dan take 1 piece of vinyl and spin it so fast it becomes about 50,000 pieces of vinyl. The results are obviously captured by a very high speed camera.
    Thanks to Vision Research for lending the Phantom v2640.

    You clearly need more Di-lithium Crystals. It sounds like you are just about to hit Warp when you suffer the catastrophic failure due to the main, and auxiliary systems being pushed too hard to make up for the lack of power.

    I wanted to point out and error in what you guys said.
    Red Green and Blue are the colors needed in light.
    Red yellow and blue are the colors needed in paint.
    Blue and yellow make green in paint.
    Blue and green make to us looking through screens actually make the color Cyan. You need Green and Red light waves to make Yellow on a screen. I don't know why the color spectrums change between light and between paint or objects. It's odd to me. I think you guys should investigate this further. Maybe I'm wrong.

    It’s hitting natural resonances as you increase speed. That is why it “warbles” more at some speeds than another.

    The odd harmonics are neat. You can hear the strange sound as the wave that causes the warping travels much slower than the rpm of the record, putting it under stress.

    Anybody else curious about what the record titles were? I'm sure they were worthless haven't heard of these guys but it would be a fun little trivia tidbit. Another thing that would be interesting is using different types of record discs. Through the years of records there were several different materials that were used in producing the discs. The older harder discs will shatter at a weaker force and with that spinning device would probably disintegrate into dust. Also earlier discs would be slightly rarer had better be some pointless recording that had been remade zillions of times.
