Volvo Crash Tests Shot in 3D at 1000 fps

Volvo crash dummies are busy these days and production company REZQ ( Gothenburg, Sweden) filmed the action in super slow motion HD3D at 1,000 frames/second. The impressive resulting video is now available on YouTube in HD3D.

To watch the 3D video for a quick view go to YouTube 3D. But for best effect,  download with KeepVidchoosing the highest resolution (1080p), and watch with StereoscopicPlayer on a big screen. Disparities are not too large, so you really enjoy this one on a large screen such as a 50" 3DTV or a larger screen.
