Cool things to do with a magnetron (surprise bonus added)

So while going through youtube videos about microwave repair, I stumbled across a cool video of some Ukrainians playing with a magnetron rigged to a can playing with light bulbs and other various conductors, when suddenly...well skip to 1:15 if you can't wait that long. Then after a nifty plug at the end of the video (around the 3:18 mark) more normality occurs!

Just another day in 2015 Ukraine!

Very cool!

I guess they're using the metal can as a wave guide to focus the microwaves.

I saw another video where some guys were playing around with a magnetron and pointed it at a boom box, which blew up after a few seconds of exposure.

These things are available everywhere, just a little dumpster diving required. Most of the time the membrane switch panel malfunctions and people just toss them out and buy a new one. It's cheaper than trying to get the old one fixed.

What idiots not only are they killing themselves but run the risk of blowing stuff up in their faces. On the plus side though should cause sterility and i think everyone agrees we shouldnt have them having kids.

You guys didn't hear the bomb and gunfire in the background while they casually carry on?

Holy crap! I had the volume turned down low. I heard the noise, but it didn't register that it was an explosion and the sound of a missile that passed very close to where they were working. I somehow thought that was part of their experiment.

Interesting nobody has considered weaponizing these things into some kind of super villain ray gun. Maybe these guys were giving it more power than a normal microwave gets?? The power source Its off screen somewhere, what could it be?


Maybe these guys were somewhere near the Eastern line?

Microwave ovens shield from escaping radiation.

Outside that containment, reflecting and scattering from metal, yah pretty dangerous.

They can get cancer, sterilize themselves, get 'burned'.

I was waiting for one of them to hold it up to their head to 'see if it hurts'.

A few feet away the microwaves disperse, you might get sterilized though. Nazis used similar method to sterilize 'undesirables'.

They were brought into a room and stood before a desk to be 'interviewed'. They didn't know they were being irradiated by devices hidden in the desk at waist height.

Alluded to in here.

If so, that's some balls to remain so calm, the Luhansk separatists(the military that would be responsible for the gunshots and artillery) were basically made up of a bunch of drunken Ukrainians and Russians.
