Micro ASMR: Soap Bubbles

Macro Video of Iridescent Soap Bubbles

Take a closer look at soap bubbles, did you ever notice how colorful and vivid they can be? We captured iridescent soap bubbles close enough so that you can see all the trippy, psychedelic and crazy colors. At times it looks like a rainbow, and at others, like sections of the cosmos, an intimate look at the planet Jupiter, or maybe an intense LSD trip.

This video is designed to elicit an autonomous sensory meridian response, otherwise known as ASMR. The sound design is creatively interpreted.

Interesting Facts

  • The clear portions of the soap bubbles (shown as black in the video) are a single molecular bilayer at 2.2 nm thick.
  • The colours are visible because the thickness of a bubble is the same as visible light wavelengths, resulting in iridescent interference.
  • If soap bubbles are blown into air that is below a temperature of −15 °C (5 °F), they will freeze when they touch a surface.
