A wireform dragonfly with a built-in vibrating helical homopolar motor, which interacts to produce an audio-visual spark of life!

Using only a neodymium magnet, AA battery and one length of copper wire, Nature and Technology become melded in a simplistic embrace.

The homopolar motor works from the principle of the Lorentz force, discovered about 150 years ago. Basically, it states that when current flows through a conductor in a magnetic field it will experience a force
on the charges in the conductor, producing torque.

For Homopolar Motor Kits, order from the good folks at the American Stirling Engine website. http://www.stirlingengine.com/ecommer...
