        Try using meat or flesh to stop the bell , To see what would happen if the bell hits a human

      2. ThoracJunaut

        idea: when your trying to stop a bullet, usually bullet proof glass does a good job, the bullet spents a lot of its energy on breaking the glass before getting through, its stopped before then, so just replace the glass with say a hard leather over the baseball mitt, and maybe that might stop the ball

      3. Abraham Perez

        Sadness, I'm needing a glove, and see this😥

      4. Sakonema

        Not using a solid steel ball is just weak.

      5. Douglas Parkinson


    2. Todrick Howard

      go to 10:54 looks like the glove was on fire a bit well im not sure

    3. Aidan Barry

      My coach: why can't you just catch a ball! Me:

    4. peter james

      what about firing the base ball at a bullet proof jacket

    5. Mohamed Tei-Selmane

      Try the same thing but with a 5,000MPH ball

    6. Jamar Parker

      Put liter fluid on the glove and see if it creates a sensational spark

    7. Pan Yvino

      Why are they laughing? Something funny? Or just the beavis & butthead syndrome? Nice video!


      You look just like Jonathan Torrens

    9. 2KGODLY

      I think you should test it out on bullet proof material as well to see if the baseball can be stopped by it.(kevlar)


      My guess was all of them because of what it did to the dumby

    11. GamingPlayground

      hit the 1,000 MPH baseball with the 250 MPH batting machine


      Are you the guy who plays j roc on trailer park boys

    13. beaux brasseur

      How many people could that go through?

    14. Matt Long

      On the fire...It's good plain old friction like rubbing two sticks together (they being made of the same material) but imagine them not being rubbed together for 20 minutes at speed 1, but 20 microseconds at speed 10,000.

    15. Mike Sidebottom

      the fire is from air compression like a fire starter or diesel engine

    16. SAVAGE BOii

      ill catch it

    17. __Lempinen__

      imagine if you could punch that hard

    18. bkrljanac

      I also see fire forming behind the baseball before impact

    21. Jordan super

      this seems illegal to watch be careful

    22. Lee Murray

      Only one question. How high would the ball go if you pointed it skywards?

    23. W mans Films

      What did you explode spaghetti in a ball or a baseball

    24. Human

      Fire from the leather on leather friction before the ball finally tears through the glove?

      Have you tried a distance measurement? Curious about how far that baseball might travel. - Brian

    29. TS175

      Yeah Jeremy, tell him about that scientific discourse!

    30. veljko marjanovic

      Brother, i almost fell asleep.

    31. Ventecti

      You should fire the ball up in the air with a GoPro or something and see where it goes.

    32. missipssa benatmane

      the light scattering at the canon nozzle juste after the ball exists give a blue color befor the white beam of water vapour i guess!!! which means verry small particles . . . .i'd like to know where it comes from @smartereveryday :) excuse my english

    33. Kill Bane

      There was so much fire and burning flames everywhere :D

    34. No U

      They just realised the ball is burning after 4th try

    35. Ian Hayes

      To estimate the number of gloves the ball would travel through: Could you have measured the velocity of the ball before and after passing through each type of glove then calculate the amount of force that is dissipated as it passed through each? You could assume a glove will stop a ball traveling at 100mph (& add a factor of safety of course) to determine the force each glove is capable of stopping. Assuming the ball doesn’t tear itself apart you could then calculate how many gloves it would take, correct? BTW I guessed 7 and would be curious to know how many gloves it would actually take.

    36. S. Irgendwas

      how far could the ball fly?

    37. Adolphus Hitler

      Imagine someone shoots it at you, while you holding a baseball bat

    38. tomatok k

      Just a bunch of engineers having fun, keep walking people. Nothing extreme going on here.

      Dude send that glove and if I repaired it it's mine...

    48. jdm boi

      i think this is a new generation of rpg

    49. Snyper_52

      Try to stack the gloves. While separated the mass of each glove is singled out. Perhaps if the gloves are placed against one another the mass meeting the ball will cause more stopping power to slow the ball. Similar to an arrow passing through a target that is singled out compared to an arrow trying to pass through several targets mashed together. I hope to see this tested.

    63. Matej Kesan

      The fire was already at the back of the ball before it hit the glove.....

    64. dan thirlwall

      Just get the pitcher to wear a 6 feet wide mitt made of 6 inch thick titanium.

    65. FearlessBOB

      I wanna see that cannon fire a steel ball bearing towards the metal stop plate....

      You look better with a beard

    89. white reaper

      try making that into a smaller version and make it into like a tank barrel so it could be used for millenary use or something like that because selling that to the government could make good money

    90. Kilo Block

      If you move the glove back a couple more feet you should be able to catch the ball... The gloves are too close to the cannon... I'm 100% sure that was the only thing you guys forgot... The cannon way to close unless you tryna to catch it at a certain speed than that's different...

    91. AMIDST US

      the gloves were interested to kill that man

    92. rea kittyfreak

      Dere is a blue fire is burning the ball!

    93. Croc Cake

      The ball was accelerating so fast it stated to make a super sonic field and melted the ball before it hit the dummy
