More High speed photography – tilting glasses

It’s kind of nice when you have reached a point where your tools are more than capable of the task at hand – but it turns out that manual work is more efficient. I had this idea of glasses with liquid that where spraying out (kind of my previous glass drops, see previous post) but with a lateral movement. In the end I used a skateboard and taped the glasses to it. The idea was to get a collision that got the liquid moving but then changed direction.

After several tries it turned out that manual triggering was more accurate than all electronics I had built. Strange? Well, it’s easier to look at the result and just try again than trying to adjust the parameters of the trigger when the largest source of error is still you trying to get the same momentum of the skateboard.
