Your microwave isn’t just good for cooking frozen dinners, you can also make plasma or destroy a Furby. Though we don’t recommend trying any of these experiments at home, they’re very interesting to watch nonetheless.

Microwave

HackedGadgets shows us what happens when you put a 250watt 220Volt commercial grade light bulb into the microwave. The results are quite explosive to say the least.

I guarantee you this is the biggest bulb ever microwaved measuring in at over 10″ long by 6″ in diameter that glowed as bright as the sun with an explosive blast 10 times as loud as a normal explosive bulb. The room smelled so electronic afterwards it would make any Robot drool

Make Plasma in Your Microwave Using a Grape

This followup to the how to make plasma in your microwave tutorial, provides us with an easier way to create the effect by using just a single grape — rum and coke optional.

Plasma typically takes the form of neutral gas-like clouds or charged ion beams, but may also include dust and grains (called dusty plasmas). They are typically formed by heating and ionizing a gas, stripping electrons away from atoms, thereby enabling the positive and negative charges to move freely

Furby

Tired of hearing Furby? Then why not stick it in the microwave, complete with sound effects.
