Audience View of the Mousetrap Explosion (Normal Speed)
This short clip shows the explosion in real time from the point of view of the audience.
View of Mousetrap Explosion from Above (Normal Speed)
Here we see the cascade of mousetraps from above. It's easier to see how and when different traps were set off.
View of Mousetrap Explosion from Above (Slow Motion)
The same video as before, but slowed down to facilitate tracking individual events.
View of Mousetrap Explosion from Above (In Reverse)
If things worked this way, this would have been the easy way to set up the mousetraps.
View of Mousetrap Explosion from Down Low (Normal Speed)
This short clips shows what a mouse might see if it had been watching our demonstration. Keep an eye out for the kitty cat face towards the end.
View of Mousetrap Explosion from Down Low (Slow Motion)
The down low view, but in slow motion. Fast moving objects appear to be doubled and somewhat disjointed. This actually shows an artifact of the digital camera's scanning.
View of Mousetrap Explosion from Three Angles (Slow Motion)
Here, all three views are shown simultaneously in slow motion.
View of the Time-Lapse Setup from Two Angles
We filmed the setup with two different cameras, each one taking a picture every 10 seconds. Here you can see both camera's images of the many hour process (video is silent).
