This Music Video Has it All!

The song is titled Cymatics by Nigel Stanford. Cymatics is the study of visualizing vibrations. It has a Ruben's Tube, the Chladni Plate, Ferro Fluids, a Tesla Coil, and a Plasma Ball!

Nowadays, rather than use sand, liquid, or fire to visualize vibrations, we use accelerometers and microphones or even lasers to measure the actual vibration and sound. We then use advanced software to overlay those measurements onto a model that we can manipulate on the computer.

Here's the original Link to the io9 site that has all of the videos. You can download the entire album, titled Solar Echoes, here. Enjoy!
