Malta Street Art by Leon Keer

Levitating Waters

The device featured in this video is quite interesting.  Depending on which setting is chosen, water droplets appear to be stationary, falling, or moving in an upward direction.  In reality, the water is falling down as a steady stream exactly as you would expect it to behave.  Inside the box, however, there are a series […]
