High-Speed Photo Booth


Watson Festival HighSpeed PhotoBooth Channel.

Interactive photo booth, where technology allows users to see their fast moving activity played back in slow motion, capturing details not visible to the naked eye.

An update to the familiar self-operated photo booth, this booth shoots a brief 3-second video at 1000 frames per second. Once captured, integrated software stretches the video to nearly one minute, slowing quick action to reveal normally imperceptible movements. The video is automatically uploaded to the Arts Festival YouTube channel, collecting together all the 3-second experiments the public performed throughout the festival.
