Cool video. I wonder how long it will take before creative minds in the glass art community use it.

We so love the Mythbuster guys! Thank you for sharing this! It intrigued my 7th grade artistically inclined & gifted daughter enough to watch the entire thing, part 1 and part 2. She's already asking the good questions. This girl is most definitely one to keep an eye out for in the next generation of artists. Just sayin'... ;)
