Dancing Ballerina Robot Fountain

Sprays water out of her fingertips in continuously varying spirals, zig zags, spins etc.

Like in a Disney cartoon when the elves, fairies etc dance and little sparkles or stars stream out of their fingertips only with water.

At one point the drops of water could appear to reverse direction and fly into the ballerina's fingers as a highly focused and directed strobe light syncs to the flow to give the reverse drop effect. (link)

Only drops of water instead of sparkles. [doctorremulac3, Apr 25 2022]

At some point she reverses her spin and scoops up the drops with her fingertips. https://www.youtube...watch?v=FG_l1oacWoQ

       This idea would be perfect for that image generating AI.

       LOL. Re your link Xan, is it possible that olden timey folks had a sense of humor?

       Like Len Lye's water whirler, but more human-ish..? See linky.
Disclaimer: I did some very early, very conceptual work for the mechanism design as part of an engineering paper (as did the rest of the class). Not sure if any of my (or anybody else's) ideas were incorporated.

       Whoa! Cool link Neutrino, we really need more interesting fountains. (that's the problem with being a smartass, I can't say anything without it sounding sarcastic)
