Nicholas Vuigner, a 25-year-old Swiss skier wanted to make a unique video with his phone and has spent the better part of two years figuring out how to do it.

The video was recorded at 240FPS on an iPhone 6, as Vuigner found a GoPro’s 120FPS was not fast enough.
Because the iPhone swings in a circle so quickly, it creates a hypnotic super slow-motion effect, like time is moving slower than it is — Vuigner even says he didn’t break a single device while doing all his testing.
He hasn’t provided any images of the mount yet, but Vuigner hopes to make it available as a 3D printing template for anyone to try in the future.
Would you swing your phone around on a string while skiing down a mountain to make a video like this?
