Experiment 13: Sticky-Note Waterfalls and Stairwalkers
One of our most popular videos transformed 250,000 sticky notes into giant waterfalls and wheels, using 3" x 3" zigzag pads of sticky notes made for pop-up dispensers. Here’s how you can produce those same effects. While you can make waterfalls as big as you’d like, you can build smaller versions with only a dozen or fewer pads.

Get all the details on how to do this yourself in our book, How to Build a Hovercraft.
