Since it’s Friday and was a long week, here’s a nice, soothing video to watch to help unwind. Slow motion videos are always mesmerizing. Just watching the fluidity of movements, captured in great detail is relaxing. Oddly relaxing. Things crashing into each other is hardly relaxing by itself, but throw slow motion into the mix and it’s something else entirely. This video focuses on various types of magnets. Rare-earth, toys, everything. It’s just 3 minutes of fluid, magnetic action, and it’s quite enjoyable to watch. Of course it’s on YouTube, so be prepared to spend another hour or more browsing more magnetic videos. Don’t say we didn’t warn you.

These videos were shot at 1,000 frames per second. A regular movie like what you’d see in the movie theater is 24 frames per second. There are 24 individual “pictures” that make up one second of motion. Doing the math on that, one second of motion at 1,000 frames per second takes about 42 times longer to play back at a regular frame rate. One second of magnet time (in this video) is 42 times longer than a regular second. That’s a lot of action. Doesn’t make it any more cool to to watch though. Anyway, we hope you enjoy watching the video!
