    • 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

  • So I have heard of whips creating spark with the cattail tips. I can't remember exactly why, but I could have sworn it had something to do with a supersonic slap (friction) mixed with the oils in the leather. That basket weave would be a perfect scenario to create the slap, and an oiled glove is commonplace...

    Jim MurphyJim Murphy11 timer siden
  • I know I'm super late, but if you watch the ball during the basket weave test -- you can see a small tail of fire on the ball while it is traveling to the glove!. There's actually fire well before it hits the glove.

  • I think you should build 2, protect everything but where the ball shoots out of, and have 2 balls collide, not sure if it’s gonna be like some insane dragon ball Z explosion or just something to be let down at

  • The flame is likely from the maxed thread used to stitch the basket weave to the glove. At extreme pressures oils/waxes can detonate.

  • Your glove is oiled. Put that pressure on it and you get fire. Think of oiling a pcp gun. There is a reason they use silicon oil. You actually can get most speed by using that property, or ruin your gun.
