Making Pictures With Water and Waves

 |  |  |  |  |  |  |  June 22, 2010


Not that this idea is really good for anything other than looking cool, you’ve gotta hand it to these Japanese researchers, who have managed to create a special tank which can momentarily suspend illustrations in water.

By sending precisely coordinated pulses through the water, the National Maritime Research Institute is able to generate  pre-determined shapes out of the waves. So far, all they’ve been able to muster is primitive shapes like hearts, stars, a musical note, and the letters NMRI. Someday we hope they figure out a way to create a real life version of the water creature from The Abyss.

If you’re interested in how they did it, here’s a technical explanation (translated from Japanese). You can check out more videos of the wild wave action here.
