Subwoofer Trick Will Make You Question the Physics of Reality
Very few stereo hacks can make you wonder if reality is just the random creation of a vibration of pure energy. At the most, they usually make you question if the audiohead showing it to you has too much time on their hands.

If you don’t believe the video is genuine, you can try it for yourself. Just run a plastic tube from a bucket in front of a subwoofer and let the water drop in front of it. Run the subwoofer on a sine wave of 24 hz and record it on a camcorder that records at 24 frames per second. The vibration syncs up with the frame rate and makes it appear that the water has frozen in mid-air on the video: in real life, it just streams as normally, but it creates a neat optical illusion on camera.
We know that kind of ruins the magic of it, but we wanted to try it for ourselves. See, there’s a reason you learn physics in high school.
