High Speed Corn Starch Experiments

at 11:45 am. Filed under Crazy Hacks


We have seen lots of corn starch experiments in the past. When mixed with water it is a liquid that can be poured but if you shock it with a hard impact it will turn into a solid. There are lots of fun experiments that can be done with it but the TheBackyardScientist has recorded some great reactions with his high speed camera. The best reaction I think is the one at 2:50 where a golf ball is shot at a balloon filled with the liquid, in real time it looks like a normal explosion but in slow motion you can see that the substance breaks apart like chunks of fruit.

This build isn’t for the faint of heart and is probably illegal in your area so duplicate the system at your own risk!

Apple produces a lot of electronics, unlike a pop can something like an iPhone is not the easiest thing to melt down and turn into something new. Apple wants to go green by allowing the recycling of your devices when you are done with them.

“Introduced onstage in a peppy video, “Liam” the robot — more specifically a robotic arm — was specifically developed by Apple engineers to pick apart iPhone and other gadgets, tearing the devices down into discreet modules. These parts, like an iPhone screen or logic board, can then be broken down further to recover materials for reintroduction into the global supply. ”
