    Zatch this uses Widonws Media Player to play.

    But you can download it and play it in your player just find the link to the download in the html code.

    Hi Zach,
    I let it go into my internet cache then moved the video from there.

    There is a big white square where the video would be I'm assuming, and it says it needs a plugin.

    Looking at the video again, I noticed that the projectile actually tore through the paper at the top.
    So I am sorry, it is much better than a Mexican jumping bean. :oops:

    You didnt lock close enugh. The paper is just bent out.The pojetile fals back down the tube if you didnt se that.But those must be some prety powerful magnets.

    I looked and looked and looked again. I didn't see the projectile fall back down. It seems like it is gone (stuck in your ceiling).

    The magnet isn't strong, it is the crocadile clips that must be strong. I don't use them for more than only 50mA. :lol:

    You'd better be careful. The Department of Homeland Security would never allow the proliferation of such dangerous technology at home. It will soon be a viable threat to all forms of paper armor everywhere. They are watching you.

    You do need HV to make a coilgun. The inductor's rise in current is proportional to the voltage on its terminals. At low voltage the current rises too slowly to be useful. If you had a lower inductance then of course the current rises much faster for a given voltage, but a one-turn coil would not produce a useful force.

    The current driving capabilities of the source is only part of the requirements.

    The second tup sound is the sound of the magnet bouncing off the book that is under the coill.

    You need to step frame by frame to see it.

    The Ultracap was so powerful it created a wormhole in the aether, and the projectile has been transported into parts unknown. Clearly just a copycat of Tesla's work.
