Professional Mad Scientist. I like building crazy lasers and high voltage contraptions out of scrap parts and military surplus equipment. For me science is life, and I feel there's no better way of getting in touch with nature than to study its underlying laws and then using them to create things. I'm certainly an "old school" kind of maker as I'd rather be building with my hacksaw and soldering iron than designing 3D parts on a computer. I started this channel in 2006 and handle all of the building, filming, and editing by myself. This means you'll never get a set upload schedule. :D What I lack in video editing skills I try to make up with crazy and original content. I have some crazy projects in the works so stay tuned. As always, stay safe and happy lasing!

What started as a simple desire for a brighter plasma globe got carried away and I ended up building a million volt lightning tower of death.

I would love to give a big thank you to all my Patreon supporters. I would not continue to make videos if it weren’t for your generous support. I have yet to take a paid sponsorship and rely totally on donations and overlay ads to support these projects.

I found a good deal for some plasma globes on eBay so I went ahead and bought some. Sure they were interesting, but I quickly realized I needed something much more powerful. After trying the aluminum foil arc trick, I got bored and took it apart. I tried various modifications to the driver, including a MOSFET based interrupter and a ZVS flyback transformer circuit. I even tried using some way overdriven car ignition coils but still was not satisfied.

I decided I needed to build a multi-kilowatt tesla coil in order to properly drive the thing. I mean it was Nikola Tesla that invented the plasma globe, so this was the only method that would give his invention justice. I used a quad MOT, asynchronous rotary spark gap based topology. I needed 10 microwave ovens to build the fully ballasted power supply, and most of the other stuff I found at the hardware store. I did need to order capacitors and a secondary coil online.

The resulting plasma globe was satisfactory. Giant arcs shoot directly out of the glass. Other plasma globes and light bulbs in the vicinity light up due to the extreme electromagnetic field produced. Plus, most importantly, it can light things on fire. Today I have done something good, and I will sleep well tonight. Tomorrow though, and it’s on the next project…

Antique Rusty Cleaver Restoration

Paid two bucks at a local flea market for this old, rusty cleaver. It did not look like much and hat a lot of rust pitting on one side, the handle was ruined and had severe blow marks on the spine. The seller seemed surprised I took it. As you can see in the video, as soon as I took the first layer of rust out, the makers mark became visible. It is made by an old German company named DANKRE, that specialized in kitchen cutlery. After all the rust was removed, it became visible that the cleaver was made from two...

My PET ANTS Showed Me THIS in their New ANT FARM

Click here to SUBSCRIBE: https://goo.gl/tlCQJZ I couldn't believe what I saw after my pet yellow crazy ants (the Golden Empire) was moved into their new ant farm. This ant colony has been through a lot, including quite recently a mite plague which almost wiped them out. Thankfully, their rehabilitation progress has been promising so today we move them into their brand new home, an AC Hybrid Nest. But what we discover after they move in will shock you! Ant love forever! This video was shot in 4K Ultra HD resolution. Special thanks to nature photographer and biologist Alex Wild for allowing his photos...

Destructive Testing of Laser Goggles!

Find out which goggles to use with your high powered laser and also see how those eBay goggles hold up to a direct hit with a laser! In this video I broke out some of my huge lasers and blasted some goggles from ebay as well as survival lasers. The ebay goggles gave mixed results. Some did better than I expected, and others failed miserably. Although just the fact that one pair passed, doesn't mean you should trust some random seller with your eyesight! I'll always recommend survivallasers for their safety goggles, and I've used their goggles for years. No I'm...

Well, it's a real "arc" reactor that generates plasma, but as we explained in the beginning of the video, it's impossible to create a device that uses less power than it produces due to the Conservation of Energy, a fundamental law of physics: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Conservation_of_energy (summarised as energy in = energy out + losses.) When we charge the phone, it's just using power from the main battery. Plugging it into the house - also just a skit. Sorry to get your hopes...
