Water Falls Like Magic In This Water & Sound Experiment

Posted by on March 15, 2013

Using a 24 fps camera and sound waves, Youtube user Brusspup has captured an incredible display of liquid magic: water appearing to fall in a zigzag formation.

The camera is the most important ingredient here, as the effects of the sound waves on the water cannot be seen without it:

“The effect that you are seeing can’t be seen with the naked eye. The effect only works through the camera. However, there is a version of the project you can do where the effect would be visible with the naked eye. For that project, you’d have to use a strobe light.”

Check out the video’s page for a full walk through on how to do the “experiment” yourself.
