Has gravity collapse upon itself, distorting the entire temporal realm and melting the whole world into pudding? No, this guy just got an email on his phone—and some serious vibration—while he was trying to snap a pic.
There’s a pretty-simple explanation here: the “rolling shutter effect,” which has brought us some nifty bizzaro shots in the past. You see, when a camera takes a picture line by line, the quaking lens shifts everything around, resulting in this bendy jell-o scene. If you want to recreate the phenomenon, get a friend to message you at the precise moment you hit your phone’s shutter. Shouldn’t be too tricky! [Reddit]
