HOW TO – Make a “Time Fountain”


Nathan made an incredible “Time Fountain” fluorescent drops illuminated by LEDs, he writes – “I suppose it might be called a “Backwards in Time Fountain” or a “Time Manipulation Fountain” but I figured those titles would be a bit long. Using an old battery-powered small fountain as a base, drops are pumped through a brass tube, falling out of the end at a very regular interval. A microcontroller coordinates the speed of the pump and the strobe rate of the LEDs.”Link.

  1. They have a (much large) one of these installed in one of MIT’s building. There are two streams, which collide in the middle. It is very cool, although you can’t touch it and control the collision.

  2. Somebody please mirror the site. All you nerds have used up the poor guys bandwidth and I wanna build one too! :-)
