A collection of images and animations from scientific and medical endeavors to titillate the eye.
  1. When droplets hit super hydrophobic powder, the powder fully encapsulates the droplet and “freezes” them into shapes that differ based on the fluid type and velocity.

    Top row:

    1. 25% glycerol droplet “freezing” into an ice-cream cone
    2. 25% glycerol droplet “freezing” into a tenpin shape

    Bottom row: 

    1. a normal water droplet striking regular powder and rebounding partially covered
    2. a coated water droplet ejecting a satellite drop before “freezing” into place
    3. a “frozen” 25% glycerol droplet.
