Leg Waxing in Extreme Slow Motion Is Excruciating to Watch

We already know that waxing any part of your body is extremely unpleasant. But the point is further driven home when you watch The Slow Mo Guys wax their own legs at 28,000 frames per second through the lens of a Phantom V2511 slo-mo camera.

This Pricey Wireless Speaker is Mind-Blowing

The Devialet Phantom’s been around a while, but the Apple Store recently started selling the basic-but-still-very-expensive version of the speaker. Fans will be tempted, but you never want to buy something just because it’s in the Apple Store, so we gave it a try. Everything about the speaker seems impressive. It’s wireless, incredibly powerful, yet compact, and it plays bass so low you can only feel it — all while looking like an H.R. Giger creation. It also costs £1,390. Read More >>

Watch a Pro Golfer Knock a Drone From the Sky With One Golf Ball

Shooting down a flying drone is challenging even for machine gun-wielding sharpshooters. But professional golfer Keegan Bradley just made it look easy, swatting a DJI Phantom out of the sky with just a well-aimed golf ball. Thankfully, the quadcopter was carrying a GoPro, so we could see the whole thing unfold. Poor drone. Read More >>

DJI Phantom 2 Vision+ Review: Buttery Smooth Quadcopter Video

DJI has been making remote-control quadcopters for years. Originally, you had to strap your GoPro to it, but last year DJI introduced the Phantom 2 Vision, which had its own integrated camera system.

NASA Engineers Built an Insanely Complex Bullet-Time Rig For Fun

Back in May, our friend and ex-NASA JPL engineer Mark Rober, figured out a way to shoot "bullet time" videos on the cheap, with a ceiling fan, a pair of flashlights, and a GoPro.

An Underwater Bullet at 27,450 FPS Is Breathtaking

You may remember our friend Destin at Smarter Every Day shooting an AK-47 underwater. It was a cool experiment, but the pressure caused the aquarium to shatter, ruining what we now know would have been an amazing shot. To solve this problem, he built a sort of reverse-periscope for a Phantom camera and shot the AK-47 in a pool. The results are absolutely stunning. Read More >>
