From the creative mind of Steve Belfer, who composed music for the animated TV show Spongebob Squarepants, comes this awesome homemade bubble machine. The video that shows it in action is, of course, accompanied by Belfer’s fun and quirky tunes.

    If you can reverse the rotation of that boom-lifting motor, it’ll take less force to lift the boom (pushing down farther away from the fulcrum), though it’ll lift a bit slower and drop faster as a trade-off.

      Thanks Elliott. Just switching the terminals reverses the motor. Your suggestion gives the system a bit more mechanical advantage. Thanks!
