Used to have one of those, may be in a box somewhere still.
Very cool, useful to get kids interested in physics.

I like it that even Einstein could not get a handle on the physics. :what:

Lloyd, my son's dog is DISTINCTLY unsettled by the drinking bird....stands there and barks and barks. Have it in a place to amuse staff and clients and a matching rainbow Apple logo mug for it to drink from.
Worked out well. :coffee:

I knew it had something to do with evaporative cooling, but didn't know the details. Cool!
