Great video! Thanks for doing this. Oh the Netgear supply was shipped to me by the same company I normally order power supplies from. I complained to them for shipping me obviously re-purposed (but not scratch or damaged) supplies. I would not have shipped it to you if I wasn't running out of supplies! (order overload). You may return it (or anyone who got one of these) for replacement if you think it necessary. And, yes most of the cost is in the glass used to make the cell. All else is relatively inexpensive stuff. I look forward to seeing more of your experiments. Did you try removing the bottom cover plate and viewing over a dark area? I think you will see much better the lines of flux with increased brightness and clarity.
I've just got my Ferrocell (the 51mm version) as a Christmas present and have been trying it out for a few hours. I came to Ferrocell via an interest Ken Wheelers youtube videos that I found mostly by chance a few months ago. Some I'm basically a person with next to no prior knowledge of magnetism, electricity etc, but with a new found interest.
I've bought the ferrocell primarily because I'm trying to better understand Ken Wheelers work. It's already been interesting to able to slowly move the magnet, the cell in relation to the lights and my own perspective to see different views of the light traceries.
My main aim at the moment is to be able to visualise the dielectric and magnetic field dynamics. With all the diagrams Ken has made it seems as though it should be rather straightforward, but I've not got it yet!
I've taken some photos from an acute angle to try to catch a sense of the holographic appearance.
I've not figured out whether it's possible to resize a jpeg once I've inserted it, or if there is an easy way of doing this. I hope people will be able to click on this and see the images at a larger size. Of anyone can tell me if I can and how to resize it in here I'd be grateful.
Your pix look great. Clicking on the image will make it full-screen. Don't you just love the way the flux bands appear 3-d even in a 2-d photo? You can get better contrast and a brighter image if you paint the bottom cover flat-black to reduce reflections. Wal-Mart has a spray paint called 'chalkboard' that does an excellent job.
Time for me to refund your PayPal account that 10% I keep talking about.
