Shigeyoshi Osaki, scientists from the Nara Medical University, Kashihara, Japan, conjure up gossamer threads into strings of a violin. Innovation results published in the journal Physical Review Letters that will be published this month. The spider webs transformed into strings of violins

To make it, Osaki yarn harvest of 300 species of spiders Nephila maculataand. Scientists 3000-5000 stringing pieces of thread to create a larger bundle of yarn. Three bundles of yarn and then put together to form strings.

Strength test was then performed to ensure that the resulting string was broken when it is played. The test results prove that the strings of a spider’s web is stronger than nylon strings.

Studies using electron microscopy showed that in addition to a perfect cylindrical shape, the structure of stringed material also is perfect so do not leave the cavity. This supports the strings of power and create a better sound.

“Some say that a professional violinist strings of cobwebs produces better color tones, producing music that is completely new,” Osaki said as quoted by the BBC website on Monday (05/03/2012). The spider webs transformed into strings of violins
