Hydraulic Press vs. Non-Newtonian Fluid

(YouTube link)

Dissolved corn starch makes a non-Newtonian fluid that turns solid under sudden force. We've seen how you can run across a pool of it, but a slow walk means you'll be swimming. What would happen if you forced it through an extruder with a hydraulic press? Lauri Vuohensilta shows us with his hydraulic press.

After the cornstarch, he has some fun with color-changing putty, cheese, ballistic gel, crayons, canned shaving cream, and soap bars, all which go through the extruder in spectacular fashion.  -Thanks, Edward!
