This is a link post "Amazing" water trick.
Ok board........real or fake??

Looks bloody impossible to me, but genuine or not, I'm interested to know
how he did it.

This is a normal post This is easier than he makes out
Use deionised water (i.e. what they use to top up car batteries) and a perfectly smooth surface. Only stays like that for about 5-10 seconds though so mess is unavoidable.

This is a normal post srsly!?
I can't help but feel this is just a long game prank to play on people to get their kitchen floors wet...

(and a prank where the payoff is pretty pointless, as you almost certainly won't be there to enjoy it)

This is a normal post Can it be done with ordinary tap water PJ?

This is a normal post Not very easily
but I guess if you can get the glass to lift vertically enough it should do.

This is a normal post As an ex 3D animator, a skeptic and someone with a basic understanding of physics...
I would say it's a (very well done) 3D animation - the only thing that gave it away to me was the caustic light effects.

The surface of the water appears to be rippling, yet the caustics (the refracted light dapples on the table) don't seem to change.

Either way - my analysis may be wrong - but he sure as shit didn't do it for real. Apart from anything else - the only thing that could create that effect would be the surface tension of the water, and the fact that it appears to be rippling tells me that it can't be.

I'm willing to bow to superior scientific knowledge however...

This is a normal post I would go with that.
Liquids don't just stay where you put them.

There is some good quality camera tracking there.

This is a normal post Agreed
The camera blur effect is very prevalent when doing this type of animation to 'add' a slight extra sense of realism

I did it with dogs piss and not only did it work but it also produced cold fusion!!1!

Plus if you're really quick you can balance a turd on the top too!

This is a normal post If its real and slight of hand it's brilliant
if it's faked, home done cg, its equally brilliant
logic tells me its fake, and the more I stare the worse the join between it staying upright and "bursting" is. Plus as above the caustics have a slightly odd darkening around their edges.

Great work whatever way

I think it helps if the surface of your table is really smooth like marble or Formica...

This is a normal post Yep
I did it with a 1/2 pint glass.

I had to put some gelatine in it and place it in the fridge for 2 hrs. But it did work! Fact!

This is a normal post I saw this being done
took about 7 goes before it worked and it lasted for about 4 seconds. Well worth it though, it looks awesome.

This is a normal post Coriolis effect?
When it worked, he spins the glass counterclockwise, when it doesn't he spins it clockwise: Perhaps you'd have to turn the glass in a different direction south of the equator?

Perhaps it works if you're going up in a lift due to the slight increase in gravity?

pfffffffft lol

This is a normal post after doing some detective work (ie looking at his other videos on youtube)
and finding one called "My Computer Graphics Demo Reel".... I've concluded he's a cuntwit for not making a dedicated youtube account for this video.
