After the diet coke and mentos wave, there seems to be – may be – a new physics hype on youtube – namely the cornstarch and resonance monsters. This video is particular charming.

-I am not sure – but the origin of this goes probably back to this scientific video of the Center for nonlinear Dynamics at the University of Austin.

-the physics is connected to an earlier post called resonance rice and it is actually also a bit related to this earlier reported experiment of a macroscopic double slit experiment.
