Based on the success of the Pi NoIR camera explosion, I decided to capture the same explosion with the Pi Camera and the Pi NoIR at the same time.
The setup was very simple. Two RPis with a camera in each one. My friend started them at the same time, and I ignited the alcohol vapors. We captured video at 90 frames per second, and the result is below.
Again, I think this looks pretty cool. I know I am picking up the Near IR and some heat that the visible spectrum won't show.
I think there are lots of things that you can do with the NoIR camera that involve just a little bit of science and a whole lot of fun.
