Season 1, Episode 1: Why don’t fish get electrocuted by lightning?

You know that swimmning in water during a lightning storm is a bad idea. You might get electrocuted. So why don’t all of the fish in the water also get zapped? Here to answer this question is Professor Gerald Audette. Okay, we’ve all heard that swimming outdoors during a thunder or lightning storm is a […]

Construction Careers Pay Above Average

Rob McClendon: Hello, everyone. Thanks for joining us here on “Horizon.” Well, for anyone who feels ill-suited to sit in an office all day, or even more likely a cubicle, today our focus is on an alternative – two of them to be exact: construction and manufacturing. Two industries that have much in common – […]

How to Use an Autoclave

Would you want a surgeon to use a scalpel that has bacteria growing on it? Of course not! Surgical instruments must be sterilized that means no living organisms are present. There are lots of products that need to be sterilized. Pharmaceuticals… equipment… solutions, medical waste, even tattoo needles. If bacteria, fungi, or viruses are present […]

High Voltage Electricity and Water – 4k Slow Motion & Ultra Slow Motion

What’s up guys too they were back in the back. with an experiment that you’re told never to try at home. Today we’re experimenting with water period and high voltage electricity. I’m just kidding. that’s not even my intro. Get that camera out of my face. Welcome back to Warped perception. And this episode is […]

J-B WELD Bullet Challenge!

hello this is jeff of taofledermaus we’ve been asked so many times to make shotgun slugs or bullets or whatever you want to call them out of jb weld yes the cold well with over ten thousand uses and according to testimonials on the back of the old packages it’s better than baling wire we’ll […]

Making an ARC Welder – Part 1 of 2

When I burned up the wires on my first Metal Melter, I decided to turn the transformer core into a stick welder. But one transformer wasn’t enough to actually make it weld anything. In this project we’ll be modifying 2 microwave transformers, because more transformers means more power. For this project I scavenged parts from […]

How to Make The Metal Melter

In a previous video I used a modified Microwave Oven Transformer as an electrical metal melter. In this video you’ll learn step by step how it was made, and what I’m using it for now. In a previous project, I found an old microwave in a dumpster and hacked it open to see what components […]

Why 3 Phase AC instead of Single Phase???

Hi. In my last video, I talked about how Tesla won the AC-DC battle against Edison. But then he shoved three-phase AC down our throats instead of single-phase AC. Edison: “Oh no, he didn’t. He always asked for too much” Ah, get lost Eddy! Obviously Tesla had a good reason. What is a three-phase AC? […]

4 Revolutionary Riddles

At the Palace of discovery in Paris, they have this huge turntable where you can sit, and perform experiments. Like in the middle of the turntable you can put some water and then add liquid nitrogen, and this creates a kind of fog these tiny water droplets that spread out from the middle, but because […]

The Scariac (Poor Mans Variable Power Controller)

Mixing water with electricity is typically discouraged, and for good reason, but in this project we’re pumping electricity into water, and a bit of drain cleaner to create a poor mans power controller. You might have heard of a Variac. This is the Scariac. In a couple of other projects, we fashioned a homemade stick […]
