Mentos and Diet Coke Explosion

Mentos and Diet Coke Explosion at 1200fps: Casio EX-F1 Strikes Again

Giz reader Robert Woodhead combined two things that I just can’t seem to get sick of seeing: Stuffing Mentos into Diet Coke bottles and the super-slow-mo action of Casio’s EX-F1 camera to create this stunningly beautiful video.

Woodhead compensated for the 1200fps’ paltry 336×96 frame size by stitching four different Mentos tests together, and the results are awesome. Globs, ribbons and rings of Coke that are impossible to track in real time come to life when seen in slow-motion.

Watch out later today for another homemade slow-mo video; things will only get messier.
