Sometimes life goes by us so fast that it’s hard to appreciate the little things, but this slow-motion balloon drop video hits the brakes to show us just how cool a seemingly simple occurrence can be. YouTube user hackability filmed a series of water balloons falling and bouncing off the ground without breaking. The series increases from one balloon being dropped to three.

Similar slow-motion videos have gotten attention on the Internet as well, including slow motion popcorn popping and slow motion lighters lighting.

Video technology has improved so much that we can now see things better on camera than we can with our own eyes. It allows us to see the world from a perspective that we couldn’t otherwise.
