Wooden Lightning

Yes, you could do this yourself, but really, you shouldn’t.  Microwaves are super dangerous, and the current levels this guy is playing around with can cause instant death.  That being said, I could be persuaded to purchase some of these pieces of art, if the price was right.

Electrical Science

There are other things you can do with an old microwave instead of microwaving things, but it’s seriously dangerous.  Really, this guy is playing with the 2nd most dangerous part of the microwave.  Also, this guy needlessly sped up the audio and makes it seem fake.

I really like spark that just sits and does nothing.

Insane Microwave Science

Some of you might remember that we here at Deadly Computer first got our start doing some strange Microwave experiments.  We did that for a few years, and had ammassed quite a following at our peak, nothing by today’s YouTube sensation standards, but enough for our small little website that could.

Anyway, we may have been crazy college kids, but we were never suicidal.

It’s pretty risky taking apart a microwave and using the magnetron naked like that, pretty risky as in blind, sterile, and dead risky.

I haven’t watched the rest of his videos, but this video is pretty boring, mostly because he decided to leave the casing on.  That hides all the sparks and fun things, which makes the video boring.  The TV at the end was pretty good though, and the antenna glowing bright red like that was awesome.  Again though, if he had taken the TV apart it would have been a better show, I guarantee it.

Microwave Things

microwaved highlighter

 

Honestly, how did we never think of that?  We’ve microwaved our fair share of items over the years, but never something as simple and easy to find as a Highlighter.  That’s a pretty great picture too.  I wonder what it smells like by the way, probably dangerously poisonous.

Microwave Fun

Those who know me know that I got my start in the internet from a Microwave.  Many an hour was spent looking for things to microwave and what would happen to them when they went in.  My friends.  I have never tried something this dangerous, partly because I wanted to keep my microwave at a research level, and partly because the areas we engaged in our experiments were never as misoprostol cytotech secure as that garage.

That being said, when I eventually get back into the greatest underutilized of the sciences, I will be sure to make a few pressure vessels to test out the security of my lab.

Microwave Music

Ok, it’s alittle late, but I had to show it, just because it’s so awesome:

I can only imagine how much power was needed to get those microwaves working like that.  I mean, look at all the extension cords!  From my count, it’s 49 microwaves, at around 500 watts each, that’s a lot of power.   even if it was only for a minute each.  Probably why they did it in a warehouse.

I like how they didn’t get 50 of all the same microwaves, but mixed it up, that makes it more awesome.

A real CD Bubble

Reader Brandon sent me these photos of a CD bubble he tried to make.  They are much better then my attempts, which resulted in really only some smelly plastic, and burnt fingers.  But it’s still nothing like the 6 inch long tube that girl made.  I got an idea on how to try making one again from a jewel case, except I’ve just been really busy/lazy these past few days.  Plus, all the fireworks this weekend, I’ve almost been tired of playing with fire…almost.

Oh well, nice job Brandon, you proved the video, +1 internet for you.

CD Bubble

This is pretty cool,but fro mthe looks of it, it’s made with the plastic blanks in a CD spindle not an actual CD.  I spent the last 10 mins trying it with various different CDs for varying lengths of time, and all I got were bubbled CD, and burnt fingers.  Oh well.  I like my melted microwaved media discs better.

I know what happens when you Microwave something

I just got this video response to our infamous Xbox 360 in the microwave video

I understand you’re pissed off, and I don’t know what to say to you.  No we are not spoiled brats, no we are not kids, (I’d tell you our ages, but I think that would hinder my argument more then help).

We had an idea what would happen, and, we just wanted to try.  It was our Xbox, our microwave, our money, our time.  I’m not advocating you go out and do it, I’m just doing what I enjoy.  No hard feelings, I hope we can get along in the future should we ever meet.

Now, without further interruption, here is the microwaved Xbox video, cause I wanted to put it here.

What is ViewItOn.TV?

I got an email, well, actually a message on my YouTube account that says this:

Let me know what you guys think.  Here’s the website too: ViewItOn.TV
