Fluid sculpture from plastic tubing


Pull out your dusty nifty knitter, some surgical tubing, a small liquid pump, and you’ve got yourself this mesmerizing little “fluid sculpture“. I just keep watching it over and over, and thinking of new possibilities for shapes and patterns! Apparently the creators will be at Maker Faire in May; I’m looking forward to seeing it in person!

    Extra kudos for using Ratatat as the soundtrack.

    For some time, I’ve wanted to make a cooling jacket with cold water running through tubing sewn into it. I think I just got a new spin on that idea…

      Seriously, I think you have created the newest sign technology…imagine what a billboard size would look like…especially with a little backlighting!
