This Is What Happens When You Put A Camera In A Dishwasher

For those who've ever wondered how washing machines remove that gnarly melted cheese off your fine china.

Recently at The Creators Project, we've covered a variety of creative uses of cameras to capture hard-to-film shots—from videos of camera-drone fusions used for whale watching and witnessing amazing surfing, to homemade optic contraptions used to create 360° panoramic timelapses. Today, though, we noticed a homemade video that focuses on the home aspect, as YouTube user Bito released a clip of a GoPro filming the inside of a dishwasher through a full cycle.

For those who've ever pondered how a dishwasher takes your gnarly, melted cheese-covered plates and polishes them into sparkling glory, this video offers a vantage into some home appliance magic.


Bito, who also makes other great timelapse videos, explained he, "Always wanted to see what happens in my dishwasher after I close the door. Many of the other videos I saw had terrible lighting or bad angles," and so he made his own. The uploader also added that his cam had two light sources that reflected at different angles, offering a clear view into the machine. He had tried this experiment two other times, but had to find away around the dish cleaner's heat and battery time.

When I was a little kid, our cat once got stuck in the dryer. He luckily made it out ok, but I always wondered what the machine looked like from his perspective. Maybe Bito can tackle this appliance next.
