Inside a Liquid Mirror Vortex in Slow Mo – The Slow Mo Guys

Gav and Dan have re-melted their gallium and stuck it in a blender. Will it result in cool psychedelic slow mo footage with infinite reflections, or will it fly out of the blender and melt everything in the room?

    Incredible footage. That setup is impressively complicated and awesome. Well done guys.

      At the center of Jupiter and Saturn is liquid metallic hydrogen. I wonder what all that looks like. Large layers of the atmosphere are supercritical gas that just slowly gets more liquid at very high pressures and temperatures.

      Remember Colin Furze keeps “breaking the internet,” this video IS breaking the internet!

      First thought was “I bet Smarter Every Day commented on this one.”

      Someone said laminar flow?

    That “test shot” you thought might be garbage is actually one of the coolest shots you got. Looks incredible!

    I feel like these shots should be used as reference materials for special effects going forward. Especially around 8:40 where it looks like some sort of tunnel collapsing as a mass is chasing the camera.

    YouTube compression doesn’t do this justice

    They’re back! Colorful liquid is always a good slowmo

      RGB is always eye candy.

      @EpicGaming11195 that and probably he was looking for Gallium on YouTube and suddenly show this vid. I would do the same thing if I want to know which metals to farm, but then tuned in the video cuz why not haha

  6. Cosmo Djinn says:

    These shots could literally be used in a movie, just for the shape and flow effects. Like Dan said, some kind of Sci-Fi flying through space or hyperspace.

    I’d love to see the colored bits again with even more light, the shots at 9:48 and 13:06 look even cooler then the actual slow mo video at 11:23, which is a bit dark

  8. Spiffyman 30 says:

    That shot at 12:30 is my favorite. I’m so glad you included that. Totally black with crazy lights, just simple enough to really see what is going on, but so dynamic as to make it incredible

    This might sound really corny, but sometimes it seems like Gav and Dan are two British explorers or something… and we, the audience, are lucky enough to come along on their journeys.

    This looks like a crazy animation! Difficult to believe that’s just metal being mixed around in a kenwood.
