Pouring a Liquid Mirror in Slow Motion - The Slow Mo Guys 4K
Gav and Dan get some mesmerizing T-1000-like shots of Gallium splashing around. Enjoy the infinite reflections as they destroy FIshows's compression algorithm even in 4K. I'd be better off burning this one to a disk and mailing it to you guys!
Thanks to American Elements for giving us this Gallium - www.americanelements.com/

Filmed at 1000fps and 2000fps with the Phantom Flex 4K

    Gallium is not as toxic as mercury, but, however, touching the gallium and then your nose and ears is a bad idea.

    "Scraping" away the "film" looks so extremely weird. Its like cleaning a mirror, but at the same moment you're slipping through it. Wiping away deeper as if the filth itself is being reflected in the reflection. Its so weird, but at the same time so cool

    That had to be the most psychedelic thing I have ever seen in all my life, and having been born in the 70s to actual hippy parents I most certainly understand psychedelic first hand. In my house coloring usually consisted of my parents, brothers and myself sitting at the kitchen table, with several black lights as our only light, neon colored crayons, paper and coloring books. In short, in my house, even arts and crafts were freaking psychedelic! LOL ✌🥳

    Hey lads: I think you may have accidentally made a big discovery here, at 4:35 - 4:45, you have captured the metal diffracting light the same way a silicon processor die does. Yet, I cant for the life of me figure out how this is occurring, maybe there is UV light causing electrons to change energy states in the metal in oscillating patterns. Either way, this footage is a great capture of a phenomenon I don't think has been captured before. Well done!

    Q: 05:55 It's not really bouncing? A: That is because there is no air underneath the liquid when it falls down. Why no air underneath??, because liquid gallium has high surface tension (more than 10 times of water) so it does not break into droplets and falls as a single entity (Reason for ripples - perturbation present in the system, Rayleigh-Plateau instability)

    You guys should test the different waveforms on the speaker (sine, saw, etc) instead of playing actual music. It would make a much more uniform (and exceptional) reaction.

  • avinotion

    I have a feeling that it's capillarity or surface tension, that explains why there are conelets instead of droplets. But I could be wrong, since it displayed some while being poured. Or it may have something to do with it being on the verge of solidification all the time.

  • Maksbyart

    Guys you should try to have sub with hot bowl and film it in freezing room so when galium shoots up it freezes and falls to melt again .

    of what you can see it looks pretty cool..changed to 4k and ran slow and buffering but looked really cool. HD not as clear but no buffering so probably just my bandwith dropping off.

    0:08 that's when i pick up my water bottle thinking it's empty but it's full cause i filled it 5 minutes prior and forgot.... also happens the other way round, where i think it's full but it's empty and i've been putting off filling it for the past hour
