      What if you're blind in one eye?

    2. cghygyy

      You rarely hear of people telling viewers to skip their videos due to flashing images, only a warning. Needless to say I still watched this bad boy of a vid. Stay baller

    3. portokalamos portokalamos

      It's a very good idea slow motion TIG and MIG welding to see what happened

    4. Двойняшки МилаНика

      Круто, но непонятно))

    5. SpazaTron1998

      But wait. Aren't the glasses at a theater not battery powered?? Or am i wrong

    6. KAIN ARTZ

      wait why did this video not appear in my sub feed ?

    7. AnatoleH1

      Wait, how does it sync up with the TV???

    8. Kyriakos Travlos

      You should make a video once this pandemic ends on fighter jets using the afterburner or a turbocharged car doing a 2 step.

    9. Benedict Cornett

      he did it he got a hair cut

      1. Shauka Hodan


      I am watching this channel for a long time but for while I didn t watch the videos and now started to watching again . But where is the DAN can anyone explain that

    11. infirmux

      IDEA: cutting and filing fingernails in macro slo mo

    12. ace iimov

      there's nothing special about 3D screens. 3D TVs are 100hz instead of 60hz. NVIDIAs active shutter technology, "NVIDIA 3d vision" requires monitor with at least 120hz refresh rate, which most of us gamers have anyway. In-fact 120hz never caught on, so most high refresh rate monitors have 144hz or faster displays.

    13. Neon Mixtape

      Am I the only person who can watch 3-D movies without the glasses or anything? Or am I just weird

    14. Diego Flores

      wheres da other guy???????

    15. Spãcé YT

      Whenever COVID is dying down, and Dan is back on the show, we need to see slo mo of him ripping his lab coat arm.

    16. Scruffy City Fishing

      This is a great video! Ever got footage of a fish eating in slo mo?

      1. miko foin

        Gavin you look like James McAvoy i swear haha im watching narnia the lion witch and the wardrobe at first i fort it was u !

    17. Maik Mueller

      Yeah, and the saddest thing is, they did stop 3D when it was going to get real fun with OLED, 4k, HDR and HFR... With today's 8k panels, HDMI2.1 and LG's passive technology things would be great.

    18. High_ Kid

      What happened to Dan? he's not in the videos anymore

    19. Braxton Kirwin

      Where tf is Dan? I can't watch with just Gav

    20. Jeff Jones

      It is bewildering to me how quickly the manufacturers gave up on 3D instead of continuing to improve the technology and make it more ubiquitous.

    21. Komandor Bentus

      Got an idea - how about checking ferrofluid in slow mo?

    22. Sammy197

      I love how he explains the concepts and history of the technology before diving into the actual topic of the video. I wish more teachers were like him.

    23. Madhuram Daga

    24. Engineer_Games

      Hey guys please explain cold welding techniques.

    25. Idsertian

      Everyone talking about the headphone jack gag, yet no-one's acknowledging that Gav watches GTARP like a true chad. @The Slow Mo Guys Who you watching, and why is it SilentSentry?

    26. Joshuah - 2000 -


    27. Evan Nekuda

      I've got a 2011 Era Samsung 3D LED TV with active glasses,, and it's pretty cool. I don't watch much 3D stuff anymore as like you said they have pretty much abandoned the tech but the few movies I do have are super cool tocwatch still!

    28. Silvertarian

      You can also cross your eyes and get the image to focus with the side by side videos.

    29. Black

      7:03 best part of the video

    30. doire aintu

      I'm not even sensitive to flashing things but at 45 seconds I thought I was going to lose my lunch.

    31. Randomz&Cake?

      Gavin you look like James McAvoy i swear haha im watching narnia the lion witch and the wardrobe at first i fort it was u !

    32. Dog_eater_111 Mk

      Show this to epileptic people, highly recommended

    33. ryan lenihan

      Gav, my wife approves that you finally cut your hair

      1. doire aintu

        I have a 3D projector. Jurassic Park 3D is pretty good

    34. Mark Robbins

      Where is Dan ?


      why are you alone in your videos???

    36. Eddie Court

      An "Hour Glass" in slow motion!!

    37. Golden_Phantom52

      So can someone clue me in on where Dan is? Is he okay?

    38. Aldous

      Hope gav can read this... How about a slow mo of blowing a candle using punch

    39. tensago

      I was 10 years old, it was 1993. Nobody reading this would probably believe this but I myself came up with the idea of using liquid crystal glasses to filter two separate video streams into the eyes using a time controlled system. Initially the purpose was to enable two people in the same room to watch two separate programs on a single screen by wearing a pair of these glasses which would filter the correct frame from the correct show to the person who wanted it and each wearing headphones so they could hear the show they wanted.

    40. Max Everett

      Gavin! Please come up with some way we can see COLD WELDING in slow mo! A little video so you know what I mean paprom.info45Z6GbRMUY0?feature=share

    41. Ailsa Ni

      flashing images and way to many users on PAprom don’t warn about this.

    42. T_tv

      Crazy how ppl even build those things

    43. Colt Jacks

      very cool. I've always wondered why my 3d glasses needed batteries.

    44. Muntz

      So if I could wink fast enough I wouldn’t need the glasses?

    45. Eric Moulton

      I had a laptop with nvidia 3d (active), and I could see the frequency of the lights. The flourescenet tubes were just constantly going dim to bright.

      1. Ailsa Ni

        LMFAO the last bit where you couldn't find a hole for the 3.5mm jack and you threw that useless iphone away...pure gold Gavin, pure gold.

    46. The_username

      i used to have those glasses

    47. Daniel Radetic

      triple adds before a video is a new low for youtube... hope you guys get your fair share of this annoyance

    48. Mike Elliott

      I have a 3D projector. Jurassic Park 3D is pretty good

    49. Eralen00

      How do the glasses synchronize with the TV?

    50. Tyler Hall

      You should do a video of florescent/neon lights flickering on.

    51. B Lee

      A haircut...finally 👍🏻

    52. marciline

      All that happened just one frame😲😲

    53. Mike Honcho

      The Slow Mo Guy*

    54. Leon Hue

      I learned something today.

    55. Pranav Chavan

      Where is Dan btw????

    56. Deependra Raliya

      The perspective of wall-e

    57. Khalid Almufti

      Slow Mo for how the Nintendo 3DS does its 3D eye tracking without the need of glasses?

    58. Prince Vishwakarma

      I think your Channel name should be:: The backbencher guys 😳

    59. vbddfy euuyt

      LMFAO the last bit where you couldn't find a hole for the 3.5mm jack and you threw that useless iphone away...pure gold Gavin, pure gold.

    60. Jeremy James


    61. Rui Ni

      "Advanced winking". That's a great science term.

    62. UnearthlyChild


    63. Talmage Trujillo

      Do a skipping rock video!!

      1. vbddfy euuyt

        I'd love to see the stopping power of a shepherd's sling in slow mo, would need an expert though, takes ages to get accurate with it but it can take the top of a man's head off.

    64. John S

      My eyes are killing me lmao

    65. SmeiskAudio

      I don't know if you've done this, but I would love to know how the 3D works on the Nintendo 3DS.

    66. BewaFa BOT

      Hello Sir, I want to see "1 Inch Punch" in Slow Motion. Because they do it very fast at speed of Light.

    67. dustywillis79

      "our videos" WHERES DAN!!?

    68. Steve Flaxvert Cherry

      Aww I can't watch, photo sensitive epilepsy.. Unless I video myself watching it then upload my convulsive response, that should get some views! :)

    69. xXgolden-gamerXx

      shoot a spinning sawblade

    70. Black Hawk

      Thank you for the warning at the beginning of the video

    71. Boris Winter

      I miss Dan...

    72. 7muggy7

      What about the 3ds?

    73. Alef Silva

      Team monocular vision, assemble!!!

    74. DCMFB

      3d video is still the best. Just need MIT to release that screen they came.up with years ago.

    75. Devang Gupta

      that good bye was op

    76. Goju Gaming - Lợn Lồi Lõm

      Please do "bullet spins on ice"

    77. ArZee

      I'd love to see the stopping power of a shepherd's sling in slow mo, would need an expert though, takes ages to get accurate with it but it can take the top of a man's head off.

    78. Martin Zupancic

      3d on a 100" projector is amazing!

    79. Dang That's Cool!

      Why don't the TV and the active shutter glasses have to be synchronized?

    80. Siddharth Lama slow mo this

    81. Jarred

      Those 3D TV's were way ahead of their time. I worked at Best Buy when they started all the 3d stuff and it was ridiculously expensive. I remember we had a 50" 3D Panasonic Plasma display that was like $2,600. And each pair of glasses was like $150. Like you said in the video, it probably would do better now since tv prices have plummeted since then.

    82. Axel Rytkönen

      The sub field drive sounds so cool

    83. Stian Hatlevoll

      Collab with HowNotToHighline about braking carabiners in Super Slow Motion?

    84. Mohammed Basil

      Bruh its been a long time , Happy to see u , Love from kerala , India

    85. lewistrundell(Pan)

      Loving it

    86. xwaltranx

      3d tv, remember them? they even made 3d smartphones. lol where are they now? :D

    87. Rowan Brown

      Coolest thing I've seen with shutter lense tech was a local multiplayer racing game that didn't need split screen. Each player was only shown their frames

    88. Manjushri

      Glassesless 3D could bring it back, similar to the 3DS. Maybe you could check one of those out!!!! (3ds i mean :) )

    89. Marwan Alathlawi

      Gav Saying goodbye made me worry ..

    90. PK

      Super cool! I dug learning how the plasma TV worked, too. Sub frame drive...that sounds like something from Star Trek. BTW what streamer were you watching at the end?

    91. BizzaroHunter

      @7:04 killed me. Thanks Gav. I'm now dead.

    92. James Walkington

      I am out until Dan’s back. Why he couldn’t be a zoom call on an iPad during any of this is bizarre.

    93. Crazy Mike in Yellow Jeep

      I bought a Samsung 3D TV like 10 years ago and it still works great very happy with it just as you said so sad it didn't catch on at the time I got it because I was hoping this would be the new developing technology

    94. Kasper Sirenius

      This channel has sadly turned into The Slo Mo Guy

    95. Michael Wahl

      Y’all should do a video on wood turning

    96. Matthew

      So doing something with Dan yet? Just call him once... Why did he just disappear

    97. Jofish

      I love the disguised toss of the phone once u realized there is no head phone Jack.🤣🤣

    98. Tim Wright

      I still watch films on my 3D TV. Just hoping it lasts, as it's great for film nights.

    99. Mark

      I used to love 3D tvs and 3D entertainment! I convinced my parents to get a 3D tv back in like 2008 or something and they handed it down to me just a month or two ago and it's such understood technology. Get a 3D screen and a movie designed for 3D and youll be a fan, that is unless you get headaches.

    100. bob loblaw

      What if the glasses somehow messed up, and the left eye view the image that should be viewed by the right eye, and vice versa?
