Watch This Non-Newtonian Fluid Being Pushed Through Holes By A Hydraulic Press

(Source: YouTube)

A non-newtonian fluid is one that behaves in different ways depending on the amount of pressure applied. The most common example is cornstarch mixed with water. It behaves like a liquid when stirred slowly but gets hard and solidifies when pressure is applied.

Watch the video below to see how it behaves when 150 bars of pressure is applied through a hydraulic press.
