[OMFG] Sound And Water Experiment Is Pretty Mindblowing

Okay, so there isn’t much in the way with music in this video but it’s still so cool that I had to share it with you all. What you’ve got is an experiment by which water, travelling through a small tube, passes in front of a speaker that is playing a 24hz sine wave. The camera recording all of this is also set to 24fps. This gives the illusion that water is actually ‘frozen’ in midair, even though you can clearly still hear water dripping. The illusion is taken a step further when the frequency is changed to 23hz, making it look like the water is actually climbing back up into the pipe! Super amazing wizard magic stuff going on here! Check it out below.
