Flaming “String Thing” (Part 2)

Here, we continue our experiments with the "String Thing" toy. We burned the original string beyond the point of repair, so we replaced it with a thicker braided polyester cord. We also decided to bypass the on-board battery pack and run the motor at a higher voltage using a bench-top power supply. We got some really interesting slow motion shots before completely destroying the plastic housing.
