X-ray gifs of people doing ordinary and extraordinary things 

By Lauren Davis | io9 | Image credit: First four gifs made by The Science of Reality, last two gifs via io9.

Video footage of X-ray images offer a perspective on bodily movement we simply can’t find in static images. Whether we’re talking, eating, or performing some truly bizarre anatomical stunts, these gifs and videos show off the mechanics of the human body.

Image descriptions [from top to bottom, left to right]: 

  1. Person swallowing liquids.
  2. Dog drinking.
  3. Christian Zehnder performs overtone singing for an X-ray segment of Pierre-Yves Borgeaud’s film Inland.
  4. Stunt artist Morgue slipping a hook in through his nose and out his mouth.
  5. Person playing the violin.  
  6. Christine Ericsdotter performing her own X-ray analyses of speech; here she is saying the Swedish word “både” (“both”).
