Oil-Drop Walkers - an Analogue for Wave Particle Duality

There has been an ongoing research effort by Yves Couder at CNRS University in France and John Bush an Applied Mathematician at MIT in the USA using fluid mechanics as an analogue to look at the de Broglie-Bohm interpretation of Quantum Mechanics.

It originated by chance when observing the movement of oil droplets on a vibrating water bath.

It is fascinating stuff.
