Bounce Water, Bounce!
A super slo-mo video shows water, water everywhere (but not a drop absorbed)
Call us obsessed, but we can’t get enough high-speed video. The scientists at GE turned us on to this footage of water bouncing off a superhydrophobic surface. As the droplets come into contact with the extremely water-resistant surface (in this case, some unknown nanoparticle-based surface, possibly nanopin film), they smash into bits and rearrange Terminator-style, bounce like a basketball and generally retain their perfect-droplet shape.
The technology has a range of applications, everything from more efficient steam turbines to planes that can be de-iced faster. But the video only has one: extreme hypnotism. Enjoy
