This is Crowdsourcing Mornings! This post takes place every weekday morning and highlights one crowdsourcing project I liked from Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or other crowdsourcing websites.
They’re pleased to announce our next product, LeviZen, the mind-blowing liquid levitator! They like to think that LeviZen brings outer space on your desk by giving you the chance to experience water in zero gravity in person for the first time. Meticulously crafted from fine walnut wood and precision machined aluminum, LeviZen is fundamentally a liquid levitator using high frequency sound waves which are not audible to our ears. When observed, water is a magical material, it’s formless and it adapts it’s shape to the object it’s poured in. But when it’s suspended in the air, its character is unveiled and all of a sudden you can see water for the first time.
Not only LeviZen can levitate water and liquids in general, it can make them light up in the air as well. The two spot LEDs placed in the base of the levitator targeted right at the levitating drop, make the drop glow like a light source as if the light itself is levitating. LeviZen levitates water using two identical sound waves that travel against each other which together create a standing wave. This wave has places on it where it does not move at all while all the other places of this wave move at maximum level. These non-moving places are called nodes. When a water drop is placed at the nodes, the water drop gets trapped by the standing waves’ maximum moving parts beneath and above the nodes. And just like that we get a levitating water drop.
As of March 13th, this project has raised $81,000 of their $15,000 goal. This project has 37 days left to raise as much as it can! For a pledge of $199, you will get one LeviZen.
