These days, it seems the CD is on the same path as the cassette tape. With digital downloads, online streaming, USB flash drives, and bigger and bigger hard drives, they just aren’t needed any more. So the Slow Mo Guys decided to say goodbye one last time to the CD by shattering one in super slow motion.
This is actually the slowest slow motion video the The Slow Mo Guys have ever captured. They spun a CD open at 23,000 RPM and recorded the smashing of it at a mind-blowing 170,000 frames per second. Good thing they wore goggles.
