What's the 44 Club? Well it all started in the outro of this video where we wondered if anyone was still watching the video at that point, and to comment 44 (Scott's fave number) if they were. Brett then said 44 Club get on board and the rest is history. The 44Club is the official How Ridiculous fan club made up of people who love our videos and watch them right to the very end. We've even got 44 Club merch now! So yeh, that's the story. Pretty random but good fun at the same time.
We are passionate about seeing children released from poverty and we would love you to consider sponsoring a child with Compassion. We visited our sponsor children in the Philippines and were blown away by the difference that child sponsorship can make. To find out more about sponsoring a child right now, check out:
What Slow Mo Camera Do We Use? We've got the The Chronos 1.4 which shoots 1500fps at 720p. Check it out here
A big thanks to the awesome crew at the Gravity Discovery Centre in Gingin for letting us use their 45m leaning tower for our own experiments. If you wanna head out there and check it out, it's not far from Perth. Western Australia:

My first thought at the start of the video is a piece of normal double-sided tape. Strong enough to hold them together, weak enough not to impede the bounce significantly. I’ll see if they go that direction.
Shouldn’t be necessary if they just drop it correctly, but could help if they run into trouble.

Not sure what your "target" was made of, but I think you need something more sturdy. Imagine how high it would go with a metal base plate to bounce off of.
Ethan Davis

They could have used a small amount of weak double sided tape to hold the small ball to the larger ball and then they could worry about not giving the ball any spin and the force of the large ball bouncing would send the small ball flying due to the weakness of the double sided tape.

@HowRidiculous, what if you had a thin metal pin or nail that went through both. Something small, maybe put some oil on it to reduce friction. Then, in theory, dropping the bigger ball would drop both: and provided there is now roll on the drop, there may be a more vertical reaction.

Should try it again, but with a thin thread to keep it at a small distance and centered. Thread should easily snap once the cannon effect takes place.

Next time, stick the little ball onto the big ball with a little bit of blue tack - just enough to hold it in place while you drop it, but not enough to stop it bouncing off.

Just use a small piece of tape between the balls to keep them together while they fall, with that you could drop a stack of three or four balls. You may be able to get one to bounce twice the height of the tower.

So, this may have been said, but if you were to hang a lead weight to stabilise the fall of the lower ball and use a small pin or needle to holt the top ball in place... You might just be able to' middle it!

What about putting a small bit of cellophane tape looped over itself and then stick the small ball to the top of the big ball and then drop it. The tape should help with holding the small ball in place so you could concentrate holding the big ball for a nice steady drop. The tape should offer only the smallest bit of resistance.

at 12:23 .. Something appears in the sky and flies at an incredible speed toward the direction of the tower but higher up. WTF is that? And can you find that footage so we can see more of it?

What if, you take just a small drop of glue (hot or regular), that way the small and large ball stick together on the drop, but the force of the bounce will break the glue. Possibly become more accurate at the point of contact and create higher bounces??? Second take on this vid plz!!!

Thoughts on what could've left that trail at 2:05, after a quick google search, maybe a Sandgroper?

Could maybe even use some kinda glue to hold them together just enough and not stop them from doing the full bounce

Idk if y’all will see this but try this with command strips on each ball. They aren’t super strong and would provide stability to the balls on the way down.

A bit of tape between them, with 3 or 4 long rags around the parameter of the big one to keep it steady?

have you tried a pin? like insert it into the bottom, and just enough to into the top one to keep it together, but the bounc will still pul it free?

Jsweizston - 2 måneder siden
What they needed was to put a pin needle or toothpick in both of the balls to keep them together. When it came time though the needle/toothpick would easily be freed because the ball on top would be flying upwards. Maybe next time but that's what I would do.

You should try this again, but build a sort of cone shaped tube, so you can load the balls on top of each other in it.
Then have a hinged panel at the bottom that you can quickly release so the balls stay in line and drop at the same time.
Or just have a tube for the smaller ball, so you just have to hold and release the larger one from under the tube, and the smaller ball will naturally fall with it.

I would have used a small piece of yarn with scotch tape to attach the two balls together. The yarn and the tape would only be strong enough to keep the two together during the fall and then easily let go on the bounce.

Double sided tape! Put a bit of it between the two balls. It’ll be enough to keep it in place but it should let go just fine on the bounce. Big ball, medium ball and small ball stacked in that order.

Maybe use masking tape to tape the small ball on the big one. Not strong enough to do much to retard the bounce but enough to hold it in place.

consider double sided tape to put balls together before dropping. It won't help with rotation, but would keep them together.

zak679 - 2 måneder siden
One of the issues they were having is the bottom ball is created a slipstream what was too large for the little ball causing it to bounce around in the slipstream maybe if they use two of the larger balls they wouldn't get that issue, but then the risk for property damage would also increase too lol still I would like to see it.
