This one was the start of a new series “Adventures from the Workbench” - by calling it an “adventure”, it totally doesn’t depart with the name of the channel, right?
This one made Hackaday, gaining it a lot of views (but not as many subscribers as I thought I’d get).
There’s some more footage of some future attempts I have to make a second video about at some point…
Update: I’ve ordered some additional stuff to try a few more experiments and there will be a follow-up video coming. Subscribe so you don’t miss it!
Ever heard of a Nernst lamp? It’s an incandescent globe that uses a ceramic filament. But isn’t that an insulator? How does it conduct electricity? How can you make one yourself with a potato peeler? How well will it work?
Watch, and find out…
