James Dyson's Uphill Foutain

Vacuum inventor James Dyson unveiled his "Wrong Garden" fountain at this year's Chelsea Garden Show. Inspired by the works of MC Escher, the water in the fountain appears to flow uphill, cascading over the top of a series of four ramps. To achieve the illusion of water traveling upwards water is pumped out of the tops of each ramp, cascading water down both the ramp and over its edge. Bubbles rising inside each ramp give the illusion of water flowing uphill, and all together it makes it look like the water is defying gravity. BBC Source.
