    I once pondered a novelty (Spencers type) based on this sort of Induction at a distance. Having a little snow globe sitting in a base with lights and fountain inside. You could pick up the globe and all stopped

    Under the plywood table in the video is a coil similar to the one below the light. Passing AC current through the coil unseen produces fluctuating lines of magnetic flux that 'Induces' a voltage in the lamp's coil above.

    Hey, no need to feel crestfallen about someone else connecting dots before you. How many people play with magnets and think nothing?

    I wanted to do a high school project on induction powered trains. But the school wouldn't help me get/pay supplies to actually build one (a scalemodel, not full sized, mind you ).

    Really? You should put your idea into action now! That would be really great.

    I think a wealth of knowledge can be found on this forum, it seems.

    I posted this over at the other site today.

    I once made a Spencers type novelty that would be an Acid Dropper's Dream. It used the phenomenon of Birefringence (The same optical physics that causes rainbows to appear from a few drops of motor oil in a mud puddle).
    I filled a one liter round bottom flask with mineral oil and clear plastic confetti made from cigarette pack wrapper acetate. Then I corked the top with a DC motor wrapped in duct tape to size that had a small length of wire crazy glued to the motor shaft to act as a whip stirrer. Then I inverted the Flask in a make-shift stew can base and wired the motor to a 3VDC power pack and plugged it in. I then sat this 'Orb' in front of a photographers light box sat on end (Think doctors looking at X-Rays) with a sheet of polarized film from Edmund Scientific taped to the front of the box.
    In operation, you would just see a glass orb with the clear confetti whirling about in a clear liquid. However, if you put on a pair of polarized sun glasses the confetti became brightly colored. The color depending upon how many layers of confetti the light passed. One layer being a Royal Blue. every color of the rainbow could be had as the spectrum repeats as the layers add up.
