If there’s one thing high speed cameras are good at, it is making us see the unseen. As maker of the video Fluke Corporation puts it:
So much of movement is invisible to the human eye. Sure, our eyes can see a cymbal move when struck by a drum stick. But it’s what our eyes can’t see that is most captivating. Metal rippling as if it were fabric fluttering in the wind, droplets of water bouncing and hovering just above the surface of a puddle; the beauty and science of movement is in the details. And the details are often the result of vibrations.
We’ve already seen them work with the cymbal, and this just adds to the magnificence.
