Harold "Doc" Edgerton, an American electrical engineer and photographer was noted for creating high-speed photography techniques. He developed and improved strobes and used them to freeze objects in motion so that they could be captured on film by a camera.
The 'Piddler' machine he created more than 50 years ago uses a stroboscopic technique to form optical illusions of levitating water droplets, slowing the downward flow of water as well as reversing the flow of water to move upwards to defy the laws of gravity. This inspired us to come up with our design of a Time Fountain.
With the water droplets in reverse, moving against gravity, it looks like the fountain is going back in time. Hence it is coined as a 'Time Fountain'.
Here we have created a compact Time Fountain DIY Kit which is small enough to be carried around for educational as well as entertaining purposes.
JF Time Fountain Basic Kit Parts Included
Note: Arduino Nano / compatible micro-controller is required but is not included.

Project build instruction for this kit is available on Instructables.
