A GoPro Camera Captures the Strangely Hypnotic Motion of a Washing Machine in Spin Cycle

While at work in 2012, electronics store employee zfeydo placed a GoPro Hero 3 inside a washing machine and captured the strangely hypnotic motion of the demo spin cycle for several minutes.

Tossed the Hero 3 inside a washer at work, it was only a demo cycle that lasted a few minutes and peaked out at 1200 rpm.

We previously wrote about the same camera going through the full cycle of a dishwasher, which had similarly mesmerizing, albeit wetter results.
