Lightbulb floats in midair and lights up


This “Magnetic Levitation Light Bulb” uses wireless energy transfer to power the floating bulb.The bulb is connected in parallel with a 100nF capacitor and copper wire coil and draws about 0.5 amps of current from the circuit below it.

    it’s a shame that the modern day youtuber doesn’t know anything about aspect ratio or how to focus a camera. lack of basic video abilities when posting a video to a video site kinda taints the whole thing with a foggy covering of ignorance, and despite the neat stuff on youtube i’ll never really remember any of it because these people won’t take 5 minutes to learn how to make a decent video.

    Are you kidding? Are you blind in some way or another?
    Didnt you see?

    I didnt even notice the foggy image because there was a friggin lightbulb levitating, without an apparent superchilled electromagnet, which I thought was needed to accurately make some thing hover. I mean it looks pretty cost effective. Who are these dudes? Ill pay for the camera if they give me just 1% ownership or somethin..

    If you do however have some revealing evidence that its a hoax, please tell me. but just ignoring the potentials because of bad video..

    i want to apologise to Naikrovek for the crappy res. I now realize how bad it really is. I messed it up while reencoding it with ffmpeg i guess. But the second movie is better(should i swap them?).

    To the rest of you; Thank you for all the comments.(and MAKE for posting this on their site). If any of you think its a hoax, or want a more detailled expanation, ill be happy to give it to you.
