Not fake, but not what it appears to be, it"s Rolling shutter effect.

That is awesome!

Not as awesome as Spanz, but still awesome.

That is pretty neat stuff, but as someone earlier said, the camera can only do 30 fps. You are seeing a video aliased signal, not the actual waveform on the strings. An actual waveform would fundamentally be half wavelength between the bridge and where your finger holds down the string. Those aliased iages are much shorter wavelength than that.

This is cool. I`ve always been interested in "musical physics".

It`s just a strobing effect--but with your `eye` instead.

Also, physics is awesome!

``Not fake, this kind of camera can do all sorts of weird thing. Another cool thing you can do, is record the tip of your remote with the phone, the camera will catch the ultra violet signs coming from the LED and translate them into purple, quite cool``

Brilliant! You can almost see the origins of life here. According to string throery, these movements are the basic ingredients of life on this universe. Wow, I didn`t knew Apple were physicists too.

want to see something else similar, get a tuning fork, hit it, then hold it up to your computer monitor

Very cool. The string isn`t "wobbling" like that. It`s catching parts of the strings during different points of vibrating and it gives it that effect. I`ll have to try this out!
