This is wonderful.


Anyone care to comment on the Physics and whether this clip would be
useful in teaching physics?

My comment: That's a great idea in general terms, but this specific
clip is not ideal for the purpose. It would be more fun to persuade
her to do it wearing a motion-capture suit.

-- Traditionally this is done optically in front of a green screen.
Multiple cameras are used to track markers on the suit.

-- Nowadays they have /wireless/ mocap suits that use a huge number
of accelerometers. No cameras required.


I edited the spelling in the subject line.
