I saw a video and had to rectify it! Can you levitate metal using voltage over your body? Watch Jayโ€™s video from @PlasmaChannel to learn more: https://youtu.be/zqkTeKsoOgo

Hi there is an interesting video levitation powers from high voltage world first from plasma channel. Let's take a look, hey, i'm jay, and this is plasma channel. What you're about to see is entirely real i'll, be the judge of that. I learned about this process several years back, which is when i first shot a video fascinating.

Is it real? So it seems he's putting very high voltage between two plates and with that it can levitate some pieces of aluminum foil, tossing the foil into place. You can see it takes a second, then he applies the same high voltage to his own body and he can lift the aluminum foil with his hand. Look at that is this real, though i mean, if you charge your body shouldn't the aluminum foil, just go up and stick to your hand, why is it stopping at a certain distance from his hand, is he using one of those invisible strings? You know what it's time for well, there's not much to rectify here. This is my friend jay from plasma channel.

We are talking about. He doesn't fake stuff unless he wants to lure me into a shocking situation, but i thought it looked like a very interesting experiment for me to do so: let's do it well. This should be quite simple for me to do since i have my super high voltage dc generator i made in my previous videos. It makes everything so nice and tidy, though i think i'll, just use some aluminum foil for my bottom plate should be good enough.

He shows i should cut a piece of aluminum foil like this fold it at the center a little bit, so it can stand. Then he says positive connects to the bottom plate and for the negative i can just hold the end of the wire in my hand, and i just bring my hand close to the foil and it should fly. It looks like a very dangerous situation, though, so i must make sure i'm not touching anything else. Okay, i think i'm in good shape.

Now, let's do this, oh wait! Why am i doing this? I'm holding the wire in this hand if i get shocked by the other hand, it will go straight through my chest: here's what i'll do i'll just wrap this wire around my arm and this way, if i get shocked, it'll just shock this part of my arm, Not the entire body. Okay, let's try it again, oh wait! Why am i exposing myself to the full power of this thing, i'm putting three large one mega ohm resistors in series and will put it in series with the high voltage to the bottom plate. This way, if i get shocked and if the output of my circuit is 60 kilovolts, then the resistors will limit the current to around 20 milliamps, which is still a lot, but should be much less lethal. I'm using these resistors to make my giant marks generator.

If you want to see that video make sure to subscribe, to get a notification, this can be very dangerously painful. So don't try this at home. Okay, ready, always turn off your high voltage power supply before manipulating anything. Let me just put my leg up here: okay, let's see if we can make it levitate at all there we go.

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, what is bouncing up and down try again. Oh, it works better backwards. Maybe i should just use a bigger one here we are, it gets attracted to the rest of my arm. Maybe i should just stand.
Okay, come on still bounces back and down back and down cut a bunch of teeth at the bottom of it, so the charges run away faster. Maybe it works better. Okay. Here we go.

Oh, oh! Oh, oh, oh! Oh it still! Bounces! Oh it's upside! Oh! Look at that, it's levitating not much cut a taller one. Maybe it needs to be taller, come on levitate. It still keeps bouncing. I need to focus my powers.

Maybe it needs teeth at the bottom. Okay, more teeth at the bottom charges running away may help. Still. Oh look at that look at that.

I got it. I got it. I got it. Let's try again well this time come on, come on, do it again, do it again? Ah there we are there.

We are oh, it's levitating. I think my voltage might not be as high as jay's. I think he beat me again in voltage level seems this thing performs better with pointier stuff, just don't shock it just fail. I hate it when it falls.

Don't shock me, okay, why is it falling? Okay? Just hand i get it, i understand how it works now see when my hand slopes like this. It goes this way because it's closer to the charges. If i go like that, it'll go this way, so i can control its position in general. It's attracted to the lowest point.

So if i have a bump at the bottom, i can attract it there. Maybe i should just do it like this. If i'm too far up it just bounces up and down, but when i'm close enough, the charges flow continuously and it levitates and that's the dangerous area because any closer and it will shock the out of me in any case, let's try it like this with a Bump at the bottom and see if it levitates here we go well. It seems like when i bring a pointy thing close to it.

It just falls here. We go. Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, close enough! There we go there. We go ow.

It shocked me. What if i use this smaller one now there you go, stop jumping you come on. Stop ah wow. I got too close.

Let's try again there we go see it's levitating. Ah, i think the taller one performs a bit better. There you go see just don't shut. You out ow, i think me doing it.

Flat-Handedly works better. Here we go there, you go see. Ah it works. So nice, oh look at this.

It floats so well now! Oh, i knew jay wouldn't betray me all of a sudden things work much better. Now, what's going on now, one thing jay mentioned that i'm not sure why he said you have to connect your body to negative and the play to positive. I don't know if it's because it's safer to connect to negative ground or it won't work. In any case, i'm gon na connect myself to positive again but through the resistor, so that it's safer okay, let's do it seems it wants to work damn.

How do i turn off the power now anything i touch will shock me. Somebody help me. Oh, i know trying again there you go, i can feel the wind. Does it really matter? If it is positive, oh seems if we flip the polarity, it won't rise as much yeah.
It just stands up and floats close to the surface yeah. It stays close to the surface forgot to disconnect myself before turning off the power supply and here's the smallest one. Well, what can i say, jay was right. Do you hear the ions blowing balancing these properly is a tough task, though there you go great now.

Why does this happen? Well, go subscribe to and watch jay's video. He explains it there very well and thanks for watching.

    you got me laughing pal i cant stop LOL

    He just used his telekinetic powers when he said: What's going on, it goes better now. lol

  3. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Orion Hunter says:

    I have an idea (stolen?)
    Put a tinfoil ball between high positive and negative charges. (I remember this being demonstrated, but the ball was on a pendulum)

    puts wire on his right arm to lure the voltage away from his chest

    grabs foil with left hand

    gg wp

    Lol this guy so funny if he get shock

  6. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars flame RBLX says:

    Not levitation magic its electric tekekinesis thats how i call it

  7. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars griffon the boss says:

    it's like high voltage super power

  8. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Kenny Martin says:

    Watching electroBoom is like watching a self taught Wizzard learn magic.

    I haven't seen someone control electricity with their hands like this since "Ernest Goes to Jail." Good job.

  10. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ben says:

    Why not use a pan or something… This seems unnecessarily dangerous

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars ixXGUNNERXx says:

    it looks better with the hand too . ( he says it works better )

    We he goes to home he takes high powder machine as Gift for his children ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚.
    Come baby i have a gift for you electric โšกโšก.

    this was not a world's first for plasma channel btw.
    this same technique is used by scale diorama makers to make the grass stand up.
