Hypnotic: Tiny Water Droplet Bouncing in Slow Motion

Jan 21, 2011

Ever seen a little bit of water sizzle around a hot pan? That's what's going on in this video, only at 3000 frames per second it looks more gorgeous than sizzly. Any slower and it would look like Rover, the nefarious weather balloon from TV's "The Prisoner."

By the way, the technical term for what we're seeing here is Leidenfrost effect, but "sizzly" works for my purposes. [Popular Science]
