Plasma Car Success!

Reverse (Fall 2013)Sean Murray

Reverse Engineering ended with a triumphant cheer as we succesfulyy built our own plasma car (a toy car that turns centrifugal force+friction into forward motion--no motor or ramp required!)

Kai with the store-bought plasma car that was reverse-emgineered.

The team showed an impressive will to tinker, and finally locked in the correct relationship between the axis of rotation and the wheels.

Parker and Zachary quickly realized that wheel alignment is crucial.

Below find video of the first working plasma car, dedicated to our peerless collaborator Nik!
