This isn’t the first time we’ve seen water flowing in unnatural ways, but that doesn’t make it any less fascinating.
The YouTube channel brusspup previously showed us a trick that suspends, bends and even makes it look like water is flowing upward against gravity. Now Brusspup ups its game in this latest demonstration.
It’s the same idea — but better.
Brusspup explained on YouTube that it uses more water and has better lighting, which results in even better footage. The video posted Monday has more than 1.6 million views so far.
“This is a really fun project and when you first see the results, chances are your jaw will drop,” brusspup wrote.
See trick for yourself:
Here’s how it’s done:
Run the rubber hose down past the speaker so that the hose touches the speaker. Leave about 1 or 2 inches of the hose hanging past the bottom of the speaker. Secure the hose to the speaker with tape or whatever works best for you. The goal is to make sure the hose is touching the actual speaker so that when the speaker produces sound (vibrates) it will vibrate the hose.
Run an audio cable from your computer to the speaker. Set your tone generating software to 24hz and hit play.
But this isn’t all. The trick cannot be seen with the naked eye, unless you’re using a strobe light. A camera set to shoot 24 frames per second though will pick it up.
“The higher the shutter speed the better the results. But also keep in the mind that the higher your shutter speed, the more light you need,” brusspup wrote.
As brusspup has demonstrated before, if you want the water to appear as if it were running backwards, set the frequency to 23hz or 25hz for it to look like it’s going forward in slow motion.
