The previous explosive bat was cool, but it wasn't setting any records. I set out to design a bat that could beat Babe Ruth's home run record of 575 feet. The engineering was intense but the results are spectacular. Aside from attempts on the record, you can also look forward to some awesome high speed footage of the bat in action and a special guest.

This video could not have been made without the help of Destin from Smarter Every Day. Not only did he provide the high speed camera, he also shared all his footage from testing the bat. He made a more in depth video on what happens when this this bat goes boom. Check it out!

      350 is a major league fly-out, not a homerun unless you hit the ball right down the line.

    I would have found the nearest batting cages and practiced the swing. Applied science necessarily requires proper application. That being said this is amazing work. You are truely gifted and disciplined to see a project like this through. Definite sub. Cant imagine what this would do to someone's skull

    Based on design of popup in a bat it is now just a matter of pressure exerted to ball so if you had a giant rubber band the force is similar and more tnt the farther it goes

    Luv it! I know you got your wits about you quite well but if I may... perhaps the ejection of the shells as with an self reloading firearm does, will allow for more force dissipation and also help with the recoil just a thought love your channel I subscribed guilty as charged I too am a Tinkerer wish I knew about kiwi Co I'll be turning my daughter on to this for sure!

    To me, this mostly just reinforces how mind blowing it is a guy physically hit a ball that far.

    Tragic I watched this to find out the answer to the record is "I don't know." But at least I didn't go though all the work you did on the project to get that ending. Pretty cool though.

    unless you wanna see people without parts of their face, what’s underneath, and chunks of body parts laying beside dead people where their innards have become huge, mutilated red balls of muscles, tissues, and nerves, don’t look up devolving. it’s nauseating, like more than most of the other things you could find on the internet.
