Try using meat or flesh to stop the bell , To see what would happen if the bell hits a human

idea: when your trying to stop a bullet, usually bullet proof glass does a good job, the bullet spents a lot of its energy on breaking the glass before getting through, its stopped before then, so just replace the glass with say a hard leather over the baseball mitt, and maybe that might stop the ball

Funny thing is, the ball isn’t rotating after getting shot, so it’s more of a knuckle ball. So imagine how much damage it COULD do if it was a true fastball 😳

You should put the glove on an arm with a spring mechanism to allow it to swing whilst catching the ball. The trick is getting the arm to start moving before catching the ball.

You need to build another supersonic baseball "bazooka" and place them facing each other, shoot a baseball against one another and video the exactly moment that the balls collided in super ultra slow motion... and then you will find a new meaning of how the universe works! lol. I would do that if I were in your shoes. maybe one day! love your videos. keep it up!!

If you watch some high speed footage of ballistics gel being hit with high power rifles there's fire inside the would cavity. I believe it has something to do with the air rapidly compressing

What PSI and Vacuum were you running, still around 500psi? I’d be really interested to see what this thing can do if you fire it closer to 1000psi and aren’t losing vacuum towards the end like in the first video. Regardless this beast is a true accomplishment!

So I know you probably won't see this comment, Destin. But it might be useful to note that on a frame by frame analysis on the shot at 13:55, fire is visible on a handful of glove impacts, not necessarily only on the basketweave gloves

10:34 The baseball goes through the glove, the glove returns to its normal shape, the wind from the cannon blows the glove away in sequence. *INSANE*

Can you "throw" a baseball onto a blade and see if the blade will cut the ball or the blade will break.

Fire was caused by air compression. You can see a flame before it even hits. Thought smarter every day would have basic knowledge of that.

To catch with a single glove, you need to increase the "Catching slowing-down Distance"; instead of fixing the metal fingers, put them in a mobile car over te rail, it needs pair of strings (or sets of them) that helps it to move from lower to higher resistance over the catching movement, not to have the glove fixed or it will keep ripping it off, even though the arm in the second shoot may have helped, It had low movement range... So the glove has to start moving as it catches the ball, then applying gradual resistance... Thanks for sharing
