Fluke, a manufacturer of testing tools, made a series of very high frame-per-second videos to reveal unseen vibrations that are commonplace, yet bizarre when slowed to speeds that we can perceive.

They explain:

So much of movement is invisible to the human eye. Sure, our eyes can see a cymbal move when struck by a drum stick. But it’s what our eyes can’t see that is most captivating. Metal rippling as if it were fabric fluttering in the wind, droplets of water bouncing and hovering just above the surface of a puddle; the beauty and science of movement is in the details. And the details are often the result of vibrations.

For this video of a cymbal crash, a Phantom HD Gold camera was used to capture the unexpectedly fluid movements at 1,000 frames per second. 

More of these videos are available at Fluke's YouTube page.
