The Coolest Thing You’ll See Today: iPhone Seen Through Oil & Water

We have seen many videos about the iPhone screen in the past: some of them focused on the magic of the Retina Display, some of them aimed at capturing pixels on our old 3GS. The same pixels we didn’t think were so important before we got our hands on the iPhone 4.

Today’s video is about the iPhone’s screen, as seen through a Canon EOS 5D looking down a piece of glass with oil & water on it. Jesse Zanzinger, the photographer who realized the video, set the maximum level of iPhone brightness, placed a piece a glass with oil and water above the iPhone and looked down with his camera to capture both science’s best enemies and the screen in a single shoot.

The result is kind of surprising. Check it out below, but don’t this at home kids. I don’t want oil to end up all over your iPhones. [Vimeo]
