Researchers at Japan’s Akishima Laboratories have developed a way to write or draw on the surface of water — “using an enclosure surrounded by 50 wave generators.”

The image is created by water pixels formed from the simultaneous intersection of all those waves. As you can imagine, a powerful computer is needed to perform the complex Bessel Function calculations involved in creating this effect
