Orbeez - tiny absorbent polymers that grow in water - are slowly becoming the latest form of entertainment. But as the video below reveals, they also serve as a fun, albeit explosive, science experiment.
Before becoming a squishy form of entertainment, Orbeez usually were functionally limited to irrigation during droughts. Once manufacturers added a bit of color, the Orbeez craze took off, with all sorts of vloggers filling their bathtubs and pools with the squishy little marbles.
One particular pair of vloggers decided to fill up their own inflatable pool with Orbeez, along with an explosive additive to shake things up. After adding thousands of Orbeez to their pool, the duo then threw in two sodium metal ingots, which explode on contact with water.
When it comes to Orbeez videos, this duo managed to add a few extra sparks to the whole show. Watch and see just how bombastic their experiment gets.
