The Story behind this video:I found these "Deco-Beads" at a local hardware store. I was looking for an additive I could put in the soil to eliminate dry patches in my lawn. These little beads are meant for decoration for wedding receptions or whatever. They come in a variety of colors so picked the red ones. I had no idea how long they took to swell up or how large they would get. I intended to make a time-lapse video showing the beads swelling up, thinking they would only take about 15 minutes to reach full size. After an hour I stopped the camera and (duh) read the instructions and found out they take 6 hours to reach full size. My computer would choke on an HD file that large and would take a good 48 hours or more to render such a huge file. I left the beads to soak and they eventually ended up measuring 5/8" (17mm) after a few days. The beads started out at 2.5 mm and ended up 17mm. I thought they would get to be about 6mm at the most. -Music by Zero ProjectCC Licensed"Distorted Reality"
