Why I traded the lab for the studio.

Lightning in a bottle at the Sonoma County Museum

Here’s a video of part of my talk and performance at the Sonoma County Museum. The people who came asked really good questions and were really into it. We had a bunch of scientists and electrical engineers. I think they liked the lightning. There’s more video of other parts of the lecture to come. ┬áNot only is there great video of the Engine working, but I also explain how it works kinetically, as well as some of the physics behind the effect.
