Egg vs. World was created one crazy night as a way for me to explore and familiarize myself with the Vision Research Phantom HD High Speed Digital Camera. After nearly a year and over twenty videos it has evolved into something beyond pure research, it has become fun. Today is my last day as an employee at the Seattle office of Koerner Camera Systems, I'm headed to New York for new adventures, and the last time I will have with the Phantom for quite a while. For this final(?) video my friends Vivan Tam and Emma Curtiss help me close out an era. 1500 fps.

Egg vs. World

Paul Hawxhurst Plus

For centuries mankind has taken a brutal pleasure in the destruction of chicken eggs. Now, it's time for the eggs to make their stand, let's see how they fight in slow-motion! These videos are shot using the Phantom HD Gold camera and an old 90mm Macro lens.

    Egg vs. Chow Yun Fat and Tony Leung? What if we remade Hard Boiled, but instead of guns they were throwing eggs?

    OK So far egg vs. can off dustoff is my favorite with vs. screwdriver (flathead) in a close 2nd. This reminds me... any ideas you could get from the movie Hard Boiled?

    Nothing's wasted as I personally recollect the innards from each egg and make a giant fry-up at the end of the day.
