Metamaterials with negative compressibility are a very promising group of novel materials with a wide variety of potential application. A recent model proposed construction of the structures with three-dimensional negative compressibility by utilizing successive destabilization of stable or metastable states and inducing phase transitions mimicking negative compressibility. Here, we would like to show that similar concept is used by the nature and a nice example of this kind of metamaterial can be seen even in a glass of water.
