Wish you’d had the dual phantom setup so we could see that safety tipped dart bounce off in all it’s slow glory

video idea: hit a drum while recording the audio with a mic right next to the drum, and film this whole setup in high speed. Then show the audio waveform captured and the correlation to the movement of the drum head. you can demonstrate how well/poorly different audio formats capture the real motion of the moving drum head.

Another reason why the medicine would need to come out with such force, is because they dart the animals in a muscle, which once the animal is darted usually tense up said muscle, which in turn makes it harder for the medicine to penetrate the muscle and infiltrate into the bloodstream.
However, you guys were also right about the animals taking the dart out, especially in animals with hands like monkeys and the sorts.

That dart is quite different than any that I've used or seen used. Seems a bit more complicated.

Hey, I’m not a daily viewer but I got a good video idea. I watched a video on a rubber band machine gun and wondered what it was like when it was firing and honestly how it worked in general. It’s pricey so I wouldn’t expect this, but I thought the gun was really cool. Thanks guys!

Guys, I love your videos, all of them. And I do enjoy a lot how you talk and explain about the stuff you do.
Could you by any chances try some cymatic experiments to record these in slow motion? That could be sick to watch. Regards from Argentina!

Could you do a shot in to a simulated animal flesh? Like how it looks in the vein? The pressure of the liquid and viscosity is different than the one being injected. It might make interesting swirls snd shockwaves.

You could do it into a 40 mercury pressure bag of oil maybe mineral oil? Obviously it has to be clear so that the camera can shoot. I think mineral would be non-destructive.

So how is the pressure released? Is the shock of the impact just enough to loosen the plunger for a split second?
