Water forms floating 'bridge' when exposed to high voltage

“Water undoubtedly is the most important chemical substance in the world,” explained Elmar Fuchs and colleagues from the Graz University of Technology in Austria in a recent study. “The interaction of water with electric fields has been intensely explored over the last years. We report another unusual effect of liquid water exposed to a dc electric field: the floating water bridge.”

I`ve heard of surface tension, but this is something else.

They didn't mention if they were able to make this happen on a bigger scale. That would be pretty cool if they could since they would have a chance to have somebody walk on water if the surface tension was strong enough. Thanks for posting this info.

Very cool find !!

I too wonder, with enough
voltage, if it could be ex-

Something to keep an eye
on, for sure !

If possible that would make a pretty cool security door.

Picture a doorway with a groove filled with water cut in the floor. With enough control thin horizontal bars of water could be elevated in rapid succession to create a water door. When deactivated they would be lowered back into the common pool in the groove.

They'd be zapped. It's high voltage. apc's security door idea is more feasible, methinks.
