And you can watch it happen in this literally awesome video from the BBC’s Bang Goes the Theory. I wonder how much that lens cost? I’ve got a shed out back, wouldn’t be too hard to cut a hole in the roof… [via Boing Boing]

    I could cause, and a new video series “Will it Melt?!!!”

    1. Math Campbell says:

      It would be a somewhat humours yet short series…

      Hmm, here we have (anything). Will it melt? Yes. Goodbye.

      Everything will melt in that. If I could afford the lens, and didn’t live in Scotland, where it is never ever sunny, that would be such a cool way of forging…

      1. Chrome6 says:

        Yes, but it would be fun seeing “how” the different items melted!

    we would be his ants. and this would be his magnifying glass!
