Did you know that High Five Day is coming up?

At Explainer TV we decided to make a special high five video. By using our Bullet Time Animation exhibit, we turned an awesome high five into an epic high five.

If you have seen movies like The Matrix or Max Payne then you have seen bullet time in action. It involves several high speed cameras, each positioned at a different angle, that take quick shots of the action.

In our case the action was the mid air high five. After the pictures are taken, a computer puts the images into sequence. This allows us to see relatively fast camera movement for a super slow motion or freeze frame action.

There you have it. Bullet Time.
