What Happens When You Spin Two Ball Bearings That Are Welded Together

These Hurricane Balls consist of two ball bearings welded together by passing 800 amps through them to create a magnificent strobe light.

When the balls are spun on a smooth surface, a plastic pipe is used to propel the pair to increasing speeds of up 12,000 rpm.

Once they are spinning, you can then use the colored LED torches to illuminate them at different angles. In a darkened room, the effect is magical!
