Bullet-time effect using the iPhone 6

Ever seen The Matrix? Then you might remember the scene with the bullet-time effect. You know, the one where Neo is hanging backwards completely and dodges a bullet or 5 in slow-motion while being filmed in 360 degrees. You can now create that effect quite easily with your iPhone.

Nicolas Vuignier, a professional skier from Switzerland, tied his iPhone 6 to a tether and went skiing. During the skiing he held the iPhone above his head and swung it in a circular motion while it was filming.

This, including great slow-motion, resulted in a breathtaking 360-degrees video of his ski tour that bears much resemblance to the Matrix scene described above.

For the Apple fans among us, don't worry: Vuignier has stated that his iPhone was not damaged during his experiment!
