This video is amazing, they are using a particle accelerator to make this amazing art work that as a side effect, discharges lightning for minutes after creation


i thought this was fake at first, that's how crazy this looks

That was a pleasure to watch. How effin cool this is. Makes you think twice about the potential static energy held in objects.

I seen this one before and yes, very amazing. I enjoy different mediums of art. Nice to more are coming out of different facets of life, namely science.

Very beautiful indeed. I wonder why they don´t wear gloves while handling? The other thing is, each single atom of that cube stores more energy than you can ever put into that cube, with methods like this.

But nonetheless, amazing results!

They were charging these up this past weekend. They do it out of someplace in Ohio once or twice a year. My brother-in-law brought a few over on Thanksgiving a few years ago and let the kids set them off. He keeps them in a cooler with dry ice so they hold the charge. I have a few of these that are bottom lit from LED and they are pretty cool.

I know they were doing 1000's of small ones but he said they were doing a 4' sheet. I'll ask him today to send a photo and post it if I can.

Really cool!


Wish it wasn't $225 for a 3 inch cube. You can get a 4 inch star for only 40 bucks though.

A very neat idea indeed. It's got me thinking of all the different applications they could be used for.

If I pour my double garage 6x6m with acrylic and attatch a huge lightning rod to it, I can build a mega lightning sculpture


And I already have someone on my mind who will be "honored" with being the one to poke it to set it off.

I know they pay $400/hr there to do these. All went well the other weekend and there are lots of people who help on an instant assembly line to take advantage of time. Somebody too 360 video of the process.

I took photos of all the ones I have but I don't have the time to figure out how to upload a photo on this site. It's been a few years and not like it was before.

I was just talking about this over breakfast. A bunch of barbed wire was buried in a heap of earth/shingles/whatever and got struck to fuse and make art. From what I know it's just a guess that's what happened.
