Ignore the hype -this video shows a vine glass shattering using the system I built.  Note the incredible deflection before it shatters explosively.

I can't believe that there haven't been a ton of comments on this! It is just so awesome to watch!

Doing it live is bit more dramatic. As you get the frequency tuned in, the glass really moves (but you can't really see how it's moving). As it really gets going, you can hear a tone produced by the vibration of the glass and the beat frequency between the excitation frequency and the glass resonance frequency. You know it's about to shatter but the exact instant is always a surprise.

Thank you Graham for getting the video to embed properly!

I wish the video was a little closer to raw but the colors are kind of neat. This was a fun project, with some frustrations along the way.

I hope its debute went well tonight. My allergies have turned into a fever so I couldn't go.

The project was a success at its unveiling last night with more than 30 wine glasses shattered to bits!

Based on what I've seen on the internet, I wonder if this is a record?

You should contact the GBR and find out - maybe you could get yourself in there.
