Ultra High Speed Video fun experiment to test out a theory of if it is possible for a child to throw an Alka- Selzer in the air with enough velocity to reach 30 feet high. Using known measurements to calculate distance and velocity. At that 30 foot level a Sea Gull swallows it, then explodes from the pressure, then falling and hitting a guy in the neck while he is standing on the beach, hence killing him. Supposedly the guy had a bone issue causing a weak neck. Or, was it his girlfriend who killed him on the beach, but just made the whole thing up? We recreate some possible scenarios. Since gulls are protected, a rubber chicken had to fill in. Draw your own conclusion. Vision Research Phantom and Fastech IImaging cameras were used for the high speed portions.
Using a Phantom camera from Vision Research inside and Fastec Imaging portable unit outside. Consumer video camera for other shots. We were broken up into four teams. We were team D. I did the animation on my iPad and transferred it to my laptop video edit. This was the first time using these particular High Speed video cameras for us. Done at MIT in Cambridge, MA, June, 2012. High speed internet recommended to view smoothly. About 5 mins. long.
