Fluid Vase, created by Fung Kwok Pan, is an object designed by simulating fluid action: a high speed camera was used to capture actual water motion in vases of different shapes at 500 frames per second.
Consumers can have various options such as the speed and volume of water, and are able to select a frame from the simulation. Production is done on demand using 3D printing.
