No Choo Choo?: Make Your Own Simple Electric Train With Copper Wire, A Couple Magnets, And A Battery

March 6, 2015


This is a video of a simple electric train made out of a length of copper wire, several neodymium magnets, and a AA-battery (previously: an even simpler tracked version). Obviously, I just made a human-size version and should be in Japan in just under two hours. Am I wearing a train conductor's hat on my head? You know I am! "Those are panties." I'm improvising.

Keep going for the video.

    Now try with different sized batteries (that fit) and record their speed. :D

    At first glance I thought this was a video of an earthworm being tortured.

    Trains made out of copper wire and neodymium magnets, HOW DO THEY WORK?!?!?!
