The glasses were superglued to basically a dry erase board with casters on it so it could roll. I made a platform for it to roll on with a board on the end to stop it and mounted it at an incline. So when the board with the glasses stopped rolling the water would keep moving and splash over the side.

QUOTED IMAGE

The water keeps moving relative to what? We know it's not the glass since the waters movement is clearly decoupled from the glass. T his is evidenced by the waters resistance to start moving with the glass and it's ability to keep moving once the glass stops. So the water moves relative to what? Anybody know? :)

Patrick, are you satisfied with your Camera Axe 5 ?

Francois.

The worst part was dealing with the "error" part of trial and error testing. It seems a hot glue gun doesn't hold the glasses very well...and the board used to stop everything needs more than just wood glue to keep it in place over repeated drops.

huh?

The top layer layer is on either rollers or slides against the bottom. when the whole tray hits the upright, the water keeps it's momentum and splashes.

Sort of a physics question. Newton first posed similar question centuries ago involving a spinning bucket of water. Had science flat on its back until not to long ago. Just tossed it out there for fun. Do you know? :)

I had to do something during the recent snowstorm, and my new cell phone arrived, so I popped it out of the box and set up. the backdrop is the side-panel for my computer :lol:
Unfortunately, the background was made incredibly grainy by flickr, it doesn't look nearly as bad on my monitor.

well, I assume surface tension and friction or other forces between particles of water would eventually cause them all to move, but I didn't get past 2nd semester physics at engineering school, and that was a while ago!:lol:

Patrick, are you satisfied with your Camera Axe 5 ?

Francois.

The only thing I didn't like about it is that the battery compartment doesn't hold the batteries very well. A thin piece of foam fixed that problem though.

For these shots, I had to increase the delay so much that just anticipating when to take the picture and pushing the shutter button manually worked as well as using the sound sensor on the Camera Axe.

The projectile sensor however blew my mind the first time I ever tried it. Getting shots like the one below was basically as simple as measuring the distance from the end of the sensor to where I wanted the bullet to be when it fired the flash. On every single shot, the exposure was made right at the point where I wanted it.

Wiped out a ton of photos from Photobucket, then realized too late that most of my shots in this thread were in there. Guess I gotta go through and redo them. Here's the sound-activated paint setup and some results

Did this idea come from "the big bang theory"? I saw that episode. Nice results! :D

No, we used to do stuff like that back in high school. When I got into photography it was one thing I wanted to try shooting, never did until I saw Canon's video...made me get off my butt and finally do it. It's extremely addicting too


I don't watch Big Bang...it's too enraging to me that nobody beats Sheldon to death with a baseball bat, any time I watch the show and Sheldon opens his mouth I immediately want to kill something. It's a cool show and I sometimes sit with the wife and watch about 5-10 minutes of it, but Sheldon completely ruins it for me. I can't stand any tv show that idolizes bullies.

Sheldon a bullie? He's the wimpiest on on the show. My wife and I love watching the show and it wouldn't be the same without him.

He's a bully. He treats the others like crap because he thinks he's the smartest guy around, he's condescending, and he's arrogant. Any time someone disagrees with him they have to bow out because he bullies them or condescends, and when they want to argue with him they don't, because they know what he's going to do. I agree that he makes the show what it is, but I don't buy into making someone with the personality disorders that he portrays into a hero. It's not entertaining to me, and it shouldn't be entertaining to anyone else.


Just not my cup of tea.

^ I can understand you reaction. And you are probably right in your analyze.

However - it's a TV show. :cool:
Don't read too much into it.
In real life he would probably, as you say, been beaten pretty hard or just left by himself.
I do not think that the majority of people watching the show thinks that the "bully method" is idolized.
If you watch some more of the show you will notice that the others are trying hard to make Sheldon understand where/when he is behaving wrong. ;)
All of the guys in the show has their own quirks. That's part of what makes it fun. I love the show :D

Sorry for the OT
