Gravity-Defying Office Installations

The science behind this DIY Levitating Water Machine is so simple that it's a wonder most offices don't have one.

As the man in the video explains, the fountain is a traditional fountain with water that falls straight down. However, with the addition of strobe lights strategically aimed at the waterfall, the water droplets appear to reverse direction and travel up towards the top of the DIY Levitating Water Machine.

When prompted, the man puts his hand out to touch one of the droplets, proving that the fountain does run down and that the DIY Levitating Water Machine is an optical illusion aided by strobe lights.
