Spinning Ink out of Pens in Slow Motion - The Slow Mo Guys
Using the scientific force known as "the spinnies," Gav and Dan make some splatter paintings using a drill. Gav asked Dan to get some cheap, knock-off felt pens, but he went full Crayola. This video is not sponsored by Crayola. Follow us on Instagram! instagram.com/gavinfree/

    The hole in the end of the marker is to allow airflow. Without air release the ink couldn’t come out of the marker tip.

    I’d make a tube of paper, reach through it and bring it back through as it spins. Maybe wobble it a bit. When you flaten the paper out it should be nice wall art! 👍🏻😁

    Hi guys! Amazing ! My special request - can you guys do a macro slow motion on an ink jet printer head printing words ? That will be amazing. Do mention me and my channel if you love my idea ? I love how those ink squirt out. But it will be fun to see ink and amaze many how our daily ink jet printer prints .!

  • Kirkendauhl

    I’m gonna guess and say the holes that the ink leaked out of are put there for the same reason that tiny hole in a coffee lid is there: when the liquid is escaping it tends to make a vacuum and those holes help the ink flow at a consistent rate. Could also be for emergancy airflow in the event of ingestion like the hole in pen caps are intended for.


    the pens did some noice artwork if i was there i would sell it for only $100000000000000000000

  • jazzochannel

    the holes are there for air to come in so the liquid can come out you knobheads.


    It is quite satisfying to see these pens squirt! 🥴
