Velaa Private Island - Maldives

With its brilliant combination of Michelin-starred cuisine, luxury accommodation and sensational location in the shimmering aquamarine waters of the Indian Ocean, Velaa Private Island is one of the most exclusive and luxurious developments in the Maldives. Spanning almost 20 hectares of private tropical paradise, the resort boasts 45 independent villas, houses and residences, all of them tastefully designed by Czech architect Petr Kolar in a wonderful fusion of traditional and contemporary styles. One of the property’s many high-end facilities is the spa, which offers an amazing range of treatments and therapies, including the only “snow room” in the Maldives.

Veritasium’s new video has an awesome demonstration featuring acoustics, standing waves, and combustion. It’s a two-dimensional take on the classic Rubens’ tube concept in which flammable gas is introduced into a chamber with a series of holes drilled across the top. Igniting the gas produces an array of flames, which is not especially interesting in itself, until a sound is added. When a note is played in the tube, the gas inside vibrates and, with the right geometry and frequency, can resonate, forming standing waves. The motion of the gas and the shape of the acoustic waves is visible in the flames. Extended into two-dimensions, this creates some very cool effects. (Video credit: Veritasium; via Ryan A.; submitted by jshoer)
