Detonator at 2000 FPS



What do hard-drinking engineers do with expensive equipment? Expensive and awesome party tricks, of course!

Here we have some dear friends back at Dartmouth's Thayer Engineering School putting a $35,000 Imperx high-speed camera to good use by recording the final round of Detonator at 2000 frames per second.

Don't know what Detonator is? It's a brilliantly simple caveman drinking game whereby a circle of cavemen college kids pass a sealed can of beer around. Each one shakes the can, yells "DETONATOR" and smashes the can against his forehead. Pass and repeat until the "winner" has the can explode.

Oh, this reminds me! Don't forget to donate to the Dartmouth College fund!
