Plasma Rifle Test Firing

This is a short video of a test of our miniature electrothermal cannon. The cannon runs purely off of electricity. Instead of using explosives or compressed gasses to lau... More»nch a projectile; it uses the hot plasma generated from an electrical short to launch the projectile. The hot plasma exits the barrel in a focused stream and will punch holes in light weight materials withing a foot but it quickly dissipates. The sparks consist of burning steel ablated from the electrodes. Although this device is currently crude and inefficient, it has none of the limitations of gun powder primarily that of maximum muzzle velocity.
