Nikola Tesla and Blue
Valvular Conduit in which fluid (or gas) flows freely in only one direction. There are no moving parts, but reverse flow is impeded by inducing turbulence at the backward-facing junctions.
I expected it to be an ideal model to build in transparent material, thereby allowing the user to see inside, but I found my model just a bit too transparent. Yes, I could see inside the model but it was hard to distinguish the channels from the walls. Ordinarily I would resolve that by adding a layer of red material, which is strongly colored so it makes a good contrast.
