Awesome Electroboom

Experimenting with Low Voltages and High Currents

Experimenting with Low Voltages and High Currents

Mehdi from ElectroBOOM demonstrates the relationship between voltage and amperage by reducing the output voltage of a microwave transformer to the point that it produces massive amounts of current. Expect lots of buzzing noises, noxious smoke, math equations, and melted objects along the way.

Capturing Electrical Arcs in Slow-Motion

Capturing Electrical Arcs in Slow-Motion

Mehdi Sadaghdar from ElectroBOOM has made a career out of playing with electricity. He teamed up with Gav and Dan of The Slow Mo Guys to shoot some high-voltage sparks from his tesla coil and Marx generator. They managed to capture some incredible shots at speeds up to 1,750,000 frames per second. Here’s Mehdi’s video.

Literal Electric Piano

Literal Electric Piano

Musician and maker Mattias Krantz has done some pretty crazy things to pianos. This time, he teamed up with Mehdi Sadaghdar of Electroboom to create the most dangerous piano ever. Using a bunch of cheap camera capacitors, he modified his hammer-head piano to create high-voltage sparks when played.

Syringe vs. Tesla Coil

Syringe vs. Tesla Coil

Tesla coils give us one of the few controlled ways to see electricity. Apparently, if you stick a nail into a plastic syringe, point it at a live tesla coil, and pull its plunger that it would extract the electric plasma into its barrel. Original footage from ElectroBOOM.

500,000 Volt Marx Generator

500,000 Volt Marx Generator

Given ElectroBOOM’s tendency to shock himself while working with electricity, we’re not sure that a 500,000-volt generator is a something he should tinker with. But that’s exactly what he shows off in this video, a high-voltage circuit made up by charging a number of capacitors in parallel, then connecting them in series.

High Voltage Levitation

High Voltage Levitation

After watching a video from Plasma Channel which explored the possibilities of levitating objects with electrostatic energy, Mehdi from ElectroBOOM decided to see if he could replicate the experiment. Naturally, it’s not an ElectroBOOM video without delivering a jolt or ten to its host.

Magic of Magnetism & Inductors

Magic of Magnetism & Inductors

Electrical engineer Mehdi Sadaghdar of ElectroBOOM presents a series of simple demonstrations involving magnets, batteries, and wires, each of which might seem magical, but can all be easily explained by science. He might have a goofy approach to teaching, but if you stick around, you might learn a thing or two.

AC vs. DC

AC vs. DC

“You know what they say about AC? It Hertz!” Want to learn the differences between alternating current and direct current? Mehdi from ElectroBOOM is here to lay down the law on the not so subtle ways that these two types of electricity vary. Caution: Science Ahead.

The Boy Who Cried “Free Energy”

The Boy Who Cried “Free Energy”

Mehdi Sadaghdar puts on his superhero guise as “The Rectifier” to debunk another ridiculous claim of “free energy,” as he crushes the hopes and dreams of a young inventor who has been making the rounds with his supposed energy-harnessing machine.

On “Free Energy” Devices

On “Free Energy” Devices

ElectroBOOM’s Mehdi Sadaghdar expresses his disdain for “perpetual motion” devices which are claimed to produce more energy than is put into them, thus defying the basic laws of physics. The only thing these guys seem to be able to actually generate are YouTube views.

ElectroBOOM: The Battery Man

ElectroBOOM: The Battery Man

ElectroBOOM’s Mehdi Sadaghdar debunks the outlandish claims of Biba Struja, aka “The Battery Man,” who says he’s not only impervious to electric shocks (which Mehdi knows all about,) but that his body actually generates a meaningful amount of power.
