Ok science and tech aficionados, let's see if we can't get to the bottom of this...
I am using an iPad at the moment, due to unforeseen issues with our internet connection at work. I am using our home network from upstairs, in order
to interface with the web. Just now, while holding the iPad in one hand, I reached over to the counter, where my cup of tea is resting. As my hand
passed over the meter rule that we have screwed to the edge of the counter, I noticed a tingling sensation in the edge of my palm, where the skin met
the metal surface of the ruler.
I put down the iPad and repeated the motion, and there was no tingling. I hefted the iPad once again, and sure enough, there was a tingle again when
I reached for my steaming beverage. The iPad is currently attached to its charging cable, plugged into an outlet on one of the columns which hold the
counter aloft. The sensation only occurs when my hand moves across the metal, and not when my hand merely rests upon it.
So the question is, what's going on?
