Shop air (~80 psi) drives this stainless steel and polycarbonate Tesla turbine. A Binsfeld torque meter (resistive strain) is attached to the shaft, but you pretty much only see a blur of the outline of the battery and transmitter.

The turbine was made on an Omax waterjet at the MIT Center for Bits and Atoms in support of fablab research.

Designed and fabricated by Amy Sun. Video by Amy Sun.
