Here’s something you probably haven’t seen before: a domino run for pyromaniacs! Kaplamino, who brought us Magnets and Marbles last year, built a chain-reaction featuring matches, sparklers, candles, fireworks, and open flames. Rube Goldberg would have been proud.
This had to be terribly precise, as it even harnesses warm air currents.
The ideas you can see in this video are more reliable than you think and work almost everytime if you build it correctly (the hardest part was to find how to build it correctly, in the screenlink you have the first version of the trick and in the final machine the 100% working version). And when there was a fail it was never caused by the part with the rubber band ( the match always lights up). Feel free to use it in your videos ! I’m sure there is so many tricks to invent with this concept.
If you try this kind of thing, be sure to have a garden hose or a fire extinguisher handy. -via Digg
