NEWS: This frame appears to slow down time


Optical fun.

Having just successfully smashed a Kickstarter goal by a whopping 773%, Slow Dance, a frame that appears to slow down the movements of objects placed within it, is now available to purchase. Designed by Jeff Lieberman, a guy with four degrees from MIT in the likes of high-speed photography and animation, Slow Dance uses a combination of vibration and strobe lighting to create the slo-mo effect.




The electromagnet vibrates the object very quickly, yet very subtly, while the strobe light passes over it from top to bottom 80 times a second. 80! As you can see above the effect is pretty incredible, and does indeed appear to slow the movements down in real time.
