IV2 – Ryan Wells – Oobleck Car Drop

This video depicts a metal toy car being dropped into Oobleck, a very unique fluid. The camera used was a high-speed camera by Sony, shot at 960 fps then slowed down by 50%. The setup included LED light stands and was taken with the help of Will Dietz, Kelsie Kerr, and Maridith Stading.

    Really cool video, love how you have two angles of the initial impact of the car hitting the surface.

    Similar to what some other comments have expressed, I like how there’s a small layer of water that gets splashed upon the initial drop, that makes it a little more visually interesting on top of the sinking of the car into the ooblek after a little bit.

    I think it would have been really interesting to have more takes of the car hitting the surface and then one long shot of the car sinking. It would have been really cool.

    I like how you used different angles to capture what was happening. I thought it was very interesting how it would splash into the ooblek like it was a hard surface before slowly sinking down.

    To answer your question, I think you could have had the first clip for a little longer because it was cool to see at different angles.

    I like how reflective the car is, it really exacerbates the movements of the car. I also like how the oobleck catches the car after the impulse bounce

    Growing up, I was really afraid of quicksand, and this video touches that nerve. You capture a few of the phenomena well, including the water splash when the oobleck firms up against the big impulse, and the slow sinking.

    This turned out really cool! The splashback when the car is initially dropped is interesting to watch, especially when it starts sinking after! It really captures a non-newtonian fluid well.
