The little machine is vibrating the molecules of the water at a certain frequency and the stream lets us see the wave of that frequency.
I fucking love physics
Also with the first gif: The water hovering/freezing in mid air is a curious optical illusion that occurs when the frequency of the water matches that of the camera filming the water, most commonly with a 24fps camera and a 24hz sine wave, making it appear as if the water is static in the air.

The sketchiness of line art mimics the natural lack of clarity in our peripheral vision. When we look at the real world, our high definition fovea can only focus on a small area at a time. By having a very clean line art, it creates the unnatural feel of high clarity over a large area that’s not possible when we look at real life, therefore line art tends to appear stiff and not as appealing as the sketch. This sketichiness technique was first utilized by impressionists to create an optical illusion of motion (along with other techniques like equiluminance).

Brinydeep Catfishbits fans:
how DARE they!!! this is a travesty! a mockery of the source material! a fundamental betrayal of the spirit of canon and the essence of the character! Arthur Conan Doyle would be spinning in his GRAVE!!!
