The rig then triggered air powered jets to propel a controlled splash from under the product as it touched down. An adjustable magnetic dampener arrested the product, stopping its descent before any shake or bounce could occur. The entire event was filmed in super slow motion with special lighting and lens systems designed to bring the splash to life. Read Less
