1. Visualize the unique sound waves created by all of your favorite music tracks.

Placing salt on a metal plate that's connected to a tone generator allows you to visualize tonal patterns of varying complexity.

6. Pour your favorite beverage into an icy slushy with the power of supercooling.


Chilling a liquid below its stated freezing point without it crystalizing is called supercooling. A simple way to supercool water is to take distilled water and freeze it next to a bottle of tap water. When the tap water freezes, remove the distilled water (now supercooled) and pour over an ice cube, which will cause the stream to crystallize and freeze.
