Breaking Glass with Sound
A few things to note: The scrolling effect seen in the strobe light footage is caused by interference between the strobe light frequency and the video camera frame rate. Also, the real oscillations of the glass are much faster than they appear in the strobe footage. Setting the frequency of the strobe light can make them appear much slower so that we can see the oscillations in real time without the help of high speed video.
We would like to thank Dr. Jim Bales of the MIT Edgerton Center for helping us with the high speed video recording, and for the use of the equipment. The high speed camera used here is a Phantom v7.1, donated by the manufacturer Vision Research, Inc.
