The Tesla Valve


The Tesla Valve is a one-way valve with no moving parts. Its geometry resists the flow of a fluid in one direction by redirecting some of it back at itself. I don't think it perfectly stops the fluid but it greatly resists it.

Shapeways user imperator made a printable version (with an unpictured cover) which he demonstrates in the video by blowing through it.
