A special effect in movies popularized by the movie "The Matrix". In the movie, time is slowed down so much that the viewer can see very fast moving objects such as bullets. Scientist used this technique to study other fast moving objects such as the famous milkdrop shot.
Bullet time in movies however uses cameras that record at speeds anywhere from 100FPS to 2000FPS and then digitally rendered to creat a desired effect (such as "wave trails" left by bullets).
As far as I know, the earliest non-scientific use of bullet time was in Korn's "Freak on a Leash" music video.
Bullet time allows you to see very fast moving objects.
