Fluke Corporation's 'Vibrations,' The Art Of Motion (VIDEO)

If you've ever found yourself transfixed by a lava lamp or a wiggling jello mold, you're not alone. Sometimes the most basic physics makes things act strangely, and watching it can be captivating and even inspirational. In "Vibrations," below, the Fluke Corporation slows the world down to show how various materials react to being plucked, thwacked and jiggled. In slow motion, things become strange and rubbery; a drummer hits a cymbal and suddenly it looks more like a jellyfish. Since you can't speed your brain up to witness and be inspired by these phenomena normally, you'll just have to watch the video to experience them.
