Science Or Sorcery?: Stream Of Water Falling In A Zigzag

March 13, 2013

This is a video from Youtuber Brusspup of a stream of water appearing to fall to the ground in a zigzag pattern. Presumably because it's hipster water and a regular flow would be -- wait for it -- too mainstream. I'll be here all week, folks.

The camera is set to match the vibration of the speaker so it's recording at 24fps while the speaker is pumping out a tone to 24hz. That creates this magic of zig zag.

I mean, sure, it COULD be that, or Youtuber user Brusspup could just be a sorcerer. If science has taught me anything it's that the simplest answer is often the right one. Now somebody cast a restrain spell on Merlin over here and let's see if he can't turn urine into gold. I have a ton of bottles from when the landlord cut my water off.

Hit the jump for the worthwhile video.

Thanks to Jacob, who's been studying magic for years and can make water flow in smiley face patterns, so there.
