You already know there are hundreds of millions of sweat pores on your skin. But have you ever seen them in action? Timelapse Vision has created a timelapse video of sweat pores on the ridges of fingertips. They are the reason why you leave fingerprints on surfaces, and why your phone screen gets smudgy.

The timelapse is fantastic: it’s well made, but its true value is in the fact that it shows something we all have, but never get to see from such proximity.

The makers used a macro lens on a timelapse camera to get the close-up photos of the sweating fingertips. So the setup was, I suppose, pretty simple. Yet, they made something I find quite unique and unusual.

I’ve seen plenty of timelapse videos, and people definitely have so many interesting ideas. but I must say, this is one of the most original and unusual timlapse videos I’ve seen so far. And I have to admit – I find it both gross and wonderful at the same time. It feels like I don’t want to watch it, but I just have to. What about you?
