Strobe Light

Maarten can loan you a vintage strobotac strobe light, which can be used to freeze the motion of things which are moving very quicly.  We have another page on hurricane balls. Below you see how to use a strobe light to make them stand still.  Other things that work well are spinning fans, electric tooth brushes, strings on guitars and violins.
