Battery Delays, and Sparks.
Seeing as it's been a while since my last post, I thought I would provide an update as to why. In addition to the staggering lack of free time that taking 18 units of major courses produces, my order of lithium batteries has been delayed several weeks by Chinese New Year. The expected arrival date is now approximately three weeks from today, so that should leave me time to finish up the preparations to the car and charger. In the meantime, here is a video of a friend and I discharging a 1 Farad electrolytic capacitor with various metal objects. At 240 FPS. Enjoy.
This was filmed with a GoPro Hero 3 Black Edition at 480p in high frame rate, and then played back at 24 fps. This made for some quite interesting results. I'll definitely be experimenting with various other things in slow motion to see if I can find something really cool. Until next time, this is KK6ADS, clear.
