    Too bad that doesn’t work with straight water. Watching the liquid drip into the cup and swirl is really neat.

    @gary: lol, I love wordplays :D great ;)

    it is definitely not healthy, but art is often not useful :D
    chemiluminescence is a really great thing to play around with, but I think it is no serious way of lighting your rooms ^^

  12. Stella

    Is it possible to buy it??

  13. wiredsleeper

    what’s the formula for the chemistry ?

  14. Shaymaa

    as a tea drinker, i am not sure about it being my cup of tea. as a science geek, this is just awesome.
