  • The origonal cathode ray entertainment device. We gurantee that out rendition of Crookes' timeless experiment is so captivating that you won't be able to leave a dark room for hours...voluntarily of course. 

    Watch as cathode rays push the turbine along the track! Our interpertation of Crookes paddle wheel tube moves a mica paddlewheel via radiometric effect from cathode rays. Once cathode rays  contact with one of the turbine's veins, the rays heat precision mica surface and and force it along the track. It functions just as a solar radiometer but with electricity.

    Vivid phosphors produce brilliant green and orange tones once as they are excited by electrons.
