What’s more powerful than watching a group of people blowing up 10 Xbox 360’s and 8 controllers?. Watching it all happen in slow motion. AÂ pyrotechnics studio in Brooklyn called J and M Special Effects performed a special shoot where this took place, and there was me worrying when my Xbox 360 red ringed. To see this explosion is extraordinary and amazing, and all commissioned for Fortune Magazine.
Photographer Dan Saelinger gives us some insight on how powerfulÂ the effect is blowing up so many consoles on his blog. The impact and fall out from the debris is simply stunning.
Even though the explosion is potentially a small one, we can see the devastating effects as it’s all been shot at 120 frames per second. Take a hop, skip and jump to check out the slow motion video. Be kind to your consoles. (photo permissions granted)
