Bursting a Balloon at 2000 frames per second!!! Seriously awesome!

For those of you who are not aware of the concept of frames in videos, here’s a briefing: Frames are like pictures which are sequentially played to form a video. A normal video contains 25-30 frames per second of play. Human eye can not see the sequence once the frame rate exceeds 25/sec. Hence, the images seem to flow in the form of a video at higher frame rates. High speed cameras can produce videos with frame rates in thousands per second. This video was made using a high-speed camera with frame output of 2000 per second (that is 2000 images in one second!!) Hence you can actually see the material of bubble disintegrating once poked and water maintaining its shape for that one second!!!!

Now you know what speed is eh?
