Interesting machines

category: general [glöplog]
What interesting stuff have you seen?

I'm looking for stuff like real life 'effects', or a gadget, or a home made jet engine or one of those fantastic domino-like contraptions. Kelvins thunderstorm is another awesome example.

Any cool wildtros like this?

The 1000 Watt Guitar Ampifier (DIY-Style)


This thing runs on 2.5kv and does soft tohard X-radiation while it amplifies (btw: -don't ask me why you ever want to build/play something like that)

1000 Watts not enough: Don't worry - the insane guys can do a guitar amplifier with 2KW (or 1600 W sinus) as well. Runs on 3kW and needs some serious cooling. (X-radiation comes for free)

Pictures of a prototype (dudes: just imageine how large the transformer is):

And here we see the anode-plate in action. The purple glow is somewhat of a mix between 3kW worth of electrons hitting a kg of metal and ionization of the remaining gas:

That thing is insane..
