Just found that thread scanning through the forum. Awesome shots.
I want to make some late comments.
Actually not that much high tech equipment required to do them though. The main ingredient would be too much time at your disposal, the perseverance of a mule, and a few thousand tries.
You need a reasonably good camera, a strong flash and some photo sensor to detect the falling drop. Then have an adjustable timer to adjust the delay from detecting the drop to the moment the flash goes off. Then try try try. And try some more.
The flash will give you an exposure time of app. 1/1.000 sec on full power. In close proximity to the target the exposure time may get down to 1/50.000 of a second. That's short enough to do the trick. That is, a flash used to be that speed 30 years ago, maybe a modern flash is even faster?
I used to have those qualities when I was young. Lost them somewhere on the way.
