It’s summer, it’s hot and a watermelon is a possible and delicious luxury. For the Slow Mo Guys though, it’s also a chance to satisfy a fantasy. How to make this watermelon explode, by “drowning” it in rubber bands. Yes, these simple, dull rubber bands.
Besides the experiment itself, that was successful and impressive, and besides the fact that at the end they of course eat a surviving part of the watermelon, what will really make you envious, is the images from their camera. A Phantom Flex with video equipment that can record video at 2.800 frames per second (!!!) at a resolution of 1080p.
Cry, laugh, at your heart’s desire. But this is an experiment that we would advise you to try in your house’s backyard. If nothing else, it should be fun. You could also try it on a balcony, but the lady of the house will probably not get this as funny or fun.
