Non-Newtonian Fluid on a Speaker Cone

Corn starch is a shear thickening non-Newtonian fluid meaning that it becomes more viscous when it is disturbed. When it’s hit repeatedly by something like a speaker cone it forms weird tendrils. The video was shot at 30 fps and the speaker cone was vibrating at 30 Hz which is why there is no blur. This is the original video with the actual sound of the speaker.

    I could practically hear the oobleck crying out in pain over its own existence and demanding release from the suffering that is life.

    This would make a great design for an horror movie blob-like creature. I guess I'm not the only one to notice it.
