In another interesting episode of The Slow Mo Guys, host Gavin Free brought a new experiment to the table including a red apple and compressed air.
Free carefully balanced the red apple on the streaming force of compressed air, which made the apple appear as though it is endlessly spinning and changing shape while defying gravity. This continued until the fruit split open due to external pressure.
“Compressed air can be used to levitate rounded objects. Sometimes said rounded objects start spinning so fast that they give up on being round objects.”
After not being happy with how the video was being represented visually, Free decided to get ahold of an incredible camera that captured the apple spinning and bursting at 28,500 frames per second. We must say, the results are remarkable.
