Watch a Slinky fall in slow motion

Cool video shows kids' toy collapsing before gravity kicks in

The YouTube channel featuring "The Slow Mo Guys" always fascinates me - watching things move in slow motion is intriguing, especially when things are hitting other things.

But in this case, it's the falling motion that's interesting - watch as a Slinky collapses on itself before dropping - when you watch the video, the bottom of the toy seems to float in mid-air before it falls.

Maybe the MinutePhysics guy can explain why this is the case in a future video.
