Water Running Through a 24hz Sine Wave

We already wrote about Brusspup and his crazy anamorphic illusions – and now he’s back with new tricks! This time he attempts to bend water using an audio speaker set to produce a 24hz sine waves. His first video, testing the principle, made it look as the water was going upwards, but now Brusspup has taken it up a notch and actually makes the water flow in shapes and patterns!

Unfortunately, the trick is that you can only see it through a 24 fps camera. The installation consists of a water hose that’s attached to a speaker with 1 or 2 inches hanging down, so that when the speaker produces sound, it vibrates the hose as well. An audio cable is attached from the computer to the speaker and the sound software is adjusted to 24 hz. When Brusspup turns on the music and the water, the result he sees through his camera is water running down in the shape of stairs and spirals. You can get different results if you set the frequency to 23 or 25hz as well!

    urinals should have built-in speakers that produce a 24hz sine wave

    Panda you blew my mind

    It would be more amazing if the hose stayed stationary.. just saying.

    Nicholas Penn actually there is a link to neatorama after the intro

    this happens also to the cameras shutter speed whilst filming it, its an illusion when the cameras frame rate is either set to half of the hz or same, tweaking is needed of course :)

  • Nathan Doyle via Facebook

    this happens because of the cameras** damn facebook and its auto we write what you dont want too..
