  • River in the Air

    Okay, more like a rivulet.  With a hattip to Gizmodo, we see this man who has learned the secret of making water stand still in the air.  No, it isn’t frozen; or, more precisely, it is, but not because its temperature has dropped to icy levels.  You see, MrBibio, as he’s known on YouTube, has created an illusion using soundwaves and a highspeed digital camera:



    What he’s done is essentially created a stop-motion film.  His camera is synced perfectly with the frequency of the soundwaves permeating the water droplets, so that every time the waves pulse, the camera captures it.  It’s not entirely original, but it is still pretty awesome.
