I don't even want to see those equations, really neat though, albiet slow and needing background music.

Wow.  I had to read the description to know that the video was computer-generated.  Those are some realistic-looking bubbles.
/Still don't understand the science.

This is of immense help in improving CGI depictions of gory scenes in future movies. Heads asploding from 20mm cannon shots will be supremely realistic!

/for the people!

Why the reflections in a computer simulation? I would think that they would be unnecessary, and even a distraction to the study.

I watched it... the whole thing.... I think I need to talk to someone.

Ha!  Talk THAT you stupid Europeans with your Large Hadron Collider!  We've got bubble simulations!

Abe Vigoda's Ghost: Why the reflections in a computer simulation?


Because setting a HDR light probe is as easy, or even easier than setting up phong shading.  It also helps to see the vibration of the bubble membranes.

But it's mostly because nerds will be nerds.

Anybody else notice that the bubbles smell weird?

And transparent things are hard to see when there is no environment to reflect.

Sorry, that was me.  I had the pastrami for lunch.  I'll go post downwind.

Simulating matter. Just another step in the direction of simulating and understanding life.
Thank you physics nerds!

Try this one, for size.

First, assume a spherical bubble...Hey, wait a mo...
