Enforce Social Distancing With High Voltage | Hackaday

tagsj3y smd

When collecting parts for a one-off project, we often find that we have some leftovers on hand. In most cases, these items are placed in the trash can, but [Brad] aka [AtomicZombie] is an ongoing project that requires parts to be recycled from several microwave ovens. That left him enough surplus to build

; This will bring a taser-like shock to those who violate the new six-foot rule.

The remaining parts in question were built around a high-voltage capacitor, [Brad] strapped to his back to hold all the electronic equipment needed for the six-foot live band. The generator uses the output voltage of the two magnetrons, but it does not start until the operator enters the password on the front control panel. This is the only safety device in the entire device. To power the magnetron, a 12 VDC car battery and an inverter are used to obtain the required input voltage. At the end of the video linked below, he showed its effectiveness by setting various objects on fire.

Although this gag project is unlikely to be actually used, it is not that anyone around us needs an excuse to play high pressure. [Brad] is unlikely to need it either; he lives on a secluded homestead covering 100 acres, and is famous for some of the projects he built to make his peaceful life easier, such as

Unfortunately, labor-saving trolls are very real.

If it is fake, what do you think?

It sounds like the Higgs boson paradox.

Radical Brad

The sparks in this video are fake. If we know from experience that every millimeter of the ark needs about one thousand volts, the voltage we get is

2 feet = 610 millimeters = 610 kilovolts.

The last time I checked (a moment ago), the transformer in the microwave did not give a signal close to this value.

As for magnetrons, they do not amplify voltage. They convert it into radio frequency radiation.

The easiest way to refute the sparks is that although the metal rods exposed in the video are closer to the magnetron, they still spark towards the end of the rod in the video. If it is a real spark, it will take the shortest path.

One more thing: point-to-point sparks do not use multiple parallel paths. The spark will take 1 path. View the video of the Tesla coil for reference.

If you want to photoshop the video, at least be honest.

Thank you very much for your thoughtful and lengthy explanation, but I insist that this machine can do the expected work, and you will need more "research", and you will certainly see this. . Starting from the original HAD release again, if you still don’t understand, please visit the complete build log...


Radical Brad

April 1st is a little late, isn't it?

Spent a long winter in Thunder Bay.

you are right!

The cabin here in Gillis has a fever!

Well, at least you are ahead of the world in terms of social distancing.

Not so, because it is 6'diameter and 6'radius.

Gillies, Ontario, has always kept a distance from society.

By the way,'it should be 2M, not 6'.

It is completely fake, and each magnetron is connected by only one wire.

You can also see that the arcs were added after the release because they did not follow the slight movement of the rig when following his turn.

Maybe keep it in the April 1st post.

I assure you that this machine can complete the expected work!

You can find the proof in the original HAD article above.

Due to the centralized tapping characteristics of the power supply, each magnetron only needs one wire. The frame becomes neutral, so each magnetron can see half of the electric potential. This inverted configuration can also block the megawatt pulsed 2.4GHz radiation of the operator's cooking. Glad I can solve this problem.


Yes, fake.

Car batteries usually have a capacity of 40 to 50 ampere hours.

At 12v, under 1 megawatt of power, 50 amperes per hour (assuming the efficiency of the transformer is 100%), can make our discharge current exceed 83 kiloamps.

W = V * A

1,000,000 = 12v * A

A = 83,333 amps

It will last about 36 milliseconds.

50 amp / hours at 12v = 600 w/h

600 w / h * (1 / 1,000,000 w) = 600 hours / 1,000,000

= 0.0006 hours = 0.036 seconds.

There is no battery on earth that can do such a thing. In addition, his "spark" lasts longer than the frame, a fact that refutes the "MW"

If you take the time to read the original HAD text above, you will definitely see that this machine can complete the expected work.

You can also find more details in the build log here, which will resolve any confusion...

I hope this will clear everything eventually.

Sorry, all of your math operations are not applicable. A little RTFM can usually be effective.

Ampere hours can’t work like that. You are bound by the discharge characteristics of the battery.

Not to mention the charge pump, the modulated output power it produces is 100 times stronger than the instantaneous capacity of a primary battery. It took a lot of engineering and time to make Covinator-if video editing is included, it would be almost 4 consecutive hours.

The point is not that the battery or magnetron produces one megawatt of instantaneous power. You can generate swept frequency signals and use pulse compression techniques to increase instantaneous power. This requires an anti-dispersion network or metamaterial surface to compress the chirp signal to a sharp peak. This is similar to how Tesla coils work. With enough pulse sharpening, you can generate enough voltage to eliminate any air gaps. The spark in the movie is obviously not a continuous megawatt, so it must be very short, but it must be repeated; this ensures that the continuous frames of the video contain evidence of the video.

It is difficult for cheap magnetrons to generate such frequency ramps or chirps, but it is well known that they are affected by different frequency changes in the anode voltage. I encountered this problem using QK338 magnetron on AN/FPS-6 radar. Due to the stable frequency, replacing it with a coaxial magnetron (the frequency can be stabilized by the external cavity) leads to a substantial reduction in the required power. Therefore, a suitable drive voltage ramp can be used to generate the required frequency sweep. What may look like a large capacitor is actually a pulse forming network because it is the remainder of the radar.

The images of the three magnetrons producing arcs between them are obviously the result of their emission at different times (one turned on and the other turned on) and turned off. This combination is imperceptible to the camera.

Oh, it's raining, so I'm going out and spreading fertilizer in my garden instead of here.

Why did he stick two magnetrons on the side of the backpack?

Read the article again-it still doesn't make any sense...

They launch microwaves to kill viruses that spread in the air

Teh Interwebs said that microwave ovens can cause viruses! Wake up, sheep!

You may be looking for something there.

On the bright side, being in the Covinator energy field can completely protect you, not only from possible microwave radiation, but also from the evil 5G waves. This is a win-win situation.

Are you the one who recently joined my forum and posted a photo of the new Covinator structure with a three-phase magnetron? if it is like this…. well done!

The virus cannot be caught/spread after death. Please make sure that you have a "do not resuscitate" note in case someone gets too close to save you.


No! …. ol!

Dear me, the magnetron is not "sticked" to the side of the backpack, but is kept in place by the combination of quantum electromotive force changes and anti-meson wave/particle interaction. Of course, even the most despicable intellectual can see this!

However, it is interesting that the spectral emission from the discharge drives the exciter. This seems to be very close to ultraviolet light, and I wonder if this has the auxiliary effect of destroying the polymerase structure of C19 that may depend on RNA. Therefore, this will increase the virus's point mutation rate, which will (hopefully) lead to some form of high-energy electron-induced mutagenesis, bringing it into an area known as the catastrophe of error and the resulting destruction. To my surprise, the interviewer did not ask more about the operation of the instrument.

We people in Europe are very happy. Even in this difficult period, American creativity is still alive and well.

The inventor is Canadian, I am sorry you mistakenly thought he was American.

Canada is in North America, isn't it?

Sadly. But the Americans chose more general terms. The United Mexican States is also facing a similar naming identity dilemma.

Your RNA destruction problem is indeed very interesting. I plan to add 2 more capacitors and try tonight. I will use a simple scanning electron microscope made from an old car radio from 1956 to verify the results. Will be released soon.

I am also glad that you understand the purpose of my Covinator project. After all, there is hope!

The inventor adopted Yooper Engineering and revised it northward!

The disease is communism 19.

The virus that caused the above death is conv-sars-2

To use this device to kill convid disease 19, you will also need a fire extinguisher to extinguish the previously smoldering infected person.

Remember to turn off the magnetic field first.

Crazy, but interesting!

The best medicine I can actually create in the lab, thanks!

The actual rated voltage of the capacitor may be the highest of 20-30 KV, not "million". But you better be careful. They can sit in the open to charge, and if there are wires hooked on them, they can charge more. They will hold the charge for a long time. If you build a voltage of about 1000 volts on them, a 1/2uF capacitor will store enough fatal energy. A complete short circuit between the terminals and the housing is the safest. If you need to actually power up, the resistor chain is just as good, but you never know if the resistor is still working.

High pressure is not a joke. That is why I am still here.

Are you kidding here?

No need to explain to me. As you can see, I have used these capacitors in various other projects, and I must understand their potential! …


I see what you are doing there

Hope this equipment has achieved your expected purpose!

We can actually do the best "drugs" for all of these now.

Hackaday ironically post fake videos?

The video is completely real. If not, what do you think? ? ?

Moreover, the intended purpose of the machine has been fully achieved.

Just talking.

Radical Brad

van vanilla, sc chocolate. Don't waste my time.

Thank you for posting my project!

I said that this device "really" achieved its intended purpose.

Some people will see, some may not.

Stay safe, busy and try to smile.

If "planning to do this" is to fake, then I wholeheartedly.


We have found that the use of a three-phase magnetron ignition system creates a greater field of social distancing...

More details can be seen here...

Don't forget to read all the text posted at the top of the HAD article so that you can fully understand the intended purpose of this amazing innovation. If you don't do this, you may waste your energy.

Radical Brad-aka: AtomicZombie

I am curious about the sound source.

I was thinking that it would be most effective to perform a series of light swords first, then make some arcs/ immediately snaps, and then make a buzzing buzz.

The blow you hear is that the glass triode dumps the megawatts of energy in the capacitor into the phase-induction system. The strong EMF seems to affect my camera microphone. When trying this voltage in our laboratory, the arc of a million volt arc is almost the sound of a rolling mill that we all hear. But what is really strange is that where I made the video, this radial pattern of withered grass is in my efforts. It seems that the lawn may be sensitive to the unlimited megawatts of 2.4GHz microwave radiation.

I also noticed some real soreness in the upper lip levator, risorius, mentalis, anguli oris, orbicularis oris, buccinator and labia.

But I do believe that this may be due to the "must be fake" comments read here, especially those that provide proofs backed by mathematical equations.

It reminded me once that I had a flashover above 100 kV in a 3-foot vacuum tube, which was only intended to operate at a voltage of 25 kV.

After the initial shock (obviously not the shock), I said to myself...

One day, people will have handheld graphical non-ionizing spectrometers, and they will be able to see a perfect image of my bone structure on the concrete wall after I stand.

But this will not be bad. I haven't fallen off yet. I went on to give birth to two children, neither of which glowed green when they were born.

Have fun in the lab! Diode rectifier?

Are the generated X-rays accidental or deliberate?

It is the pre-driver of the RF output tube.

The ht of the output tube is about 120 – 150 kV, and the rail flashes to the 25 kV rail that drives the pre-driver.

It brings a smaller tube and becomes the shortest path.

Any large tube that is overdriven will emit X-rays, even an old glass tube TV screen. The TV has a crowbar protection circuit, the crowbar protection circuit uses scr directly across the guide rail that drives the ht. If the power rail is too high, the scr will be triggered, and the power rail will be completely short-circuited to ground, and something in the PSU will explode.

All this is to prevent ht from being too high and the screen to emit X-rays.

Waste our time. Not even enough to laugh out loud.

Don't include me in your "our" Bob, I will make some comments on the floor!

Ob Bob, many people will disagree.

Doesn't seem to be a complete build instruction. The device is powered by a modified MOT and automotive battery. Without LiFe, deep batteries would be my first choice. There is no indication that the hacker has obtained power from the magnetron, and there is no circuit description indicating that the author/reporter is not helpful. No schematics are provided. so sad.

The lack of a waveguide on the magnetron and insufficient personal safety equipment indicate that it cannot be thoroughly considered. It is not good to have a tin foil hat without a cone.

It would be helpful to include the expected static field generation diagram and appropriate mathematical operations. The internal protection field generates a map, especially to exclude users from inherent radiation and electric shock. It must be assumed that a protective area with a skin effect is used, but the pulp has no contact points. Should the diamagnetic field of these devices be connected to the genitals or wrapped around the neck? Due to the highest electrical conductivity and blood flow, the anal insertion device is again used.

Reading reviews has also become more interesting.

So I am going to build this and have some questions.

Can I use any microwave, or do I have to have a pair of microwaves?

How can I get more motivation? I want the force field to extend more than 30 feet.

How long can car batteries last? I can try to use a small generator.

Will the megawatt pulse of 2.4GHz radio waves interfere with my neighbor router?

I just want to make sure I make sure it is as safe as possible, thank you.

From a three-foot radius to a 30-foot radius will consume 100 times the power, so this method quickly reduces energy efficiency in the case of extended range.

A more effective method is to use two computer vision cameras and detect people and how far they are.

This information can then target and predict semi-automatic guns.

If you want to walk through the crowd, a fully automatic gun like Uzi is better.

This may also give you some tactical advantages when buying toilet paper.

Great project. Since it is published on the Internet, it is definitely not forged.

As it happened, I saw a pair of broken microwave ovens while looking for toilet paper and flour bags on the side of the road. Hand sanitizer, check. Gloves, check it. N95 mask, check. Give the bat phone!


Glad to hear that you are going to build your own Covinator!

If those microwaves have been thrown out of a moving car, be careful when cleaning the magnetron. They usually contain a small amount of with and tungsten in their filaments. Although it is only slightly radioactive, you do not want to inhale any dust.

In addition, do not use any military radar capacitors older than 1979, as these capacitors are known to contain PCBs.

In addition, please have fun, and remember to play safely when releasing a megawatt of power into a naked microwave transmitter.

The new three-phase design being built by users on my forum also seems to provide greater social distance. I highly recommend this...

Ha, we have been watching this video almost all day, playing it frame by frame, and analyzing it using sophisticated forensic AI software in our university laboratory. Let me inspire you to understand what we have found so far...

1) If you look at the shadows on the ground, the sun is in the wrong position and some reflections are wrong. Prove that the whole thing was shot in an exquisite indoor studio!

2) There is snow on the ground, but you cannot see the pilot's breath! It definitely proves that this was shot in a complex indoor studio using advanced green screen technology. It may be a large green screen room using the latest RED Digital 8K cameras.

3) Some kind of vehicle can be seen driving along the road in the background, but the depth perspective view seems to have completely disappeared. This proves that the entire scene is a combination of chroma key material, high-precision CGI elements and controlled indoor lighting.

Things with unstable voltages may be real, but as he said, the whole thing was not shot in a remote area. Debunking... was shot in an indoor studio!

Case closed-thank you!

Do not use any military radar capacitors prior to 1979, as these capacitors are known to contain PCBs.

In addition, please have fun, and remember to play safely when releasing a megawatt of power into a naked microwave transmitter.

The new three-phase design being built by users on my forum also seems to provide greater social distance.
