Dude, your video sucks. Get an assistant.

Yup, gotta be magic. No other explanation.

Well, maybe it was gremlins.

Buy a freakin videocamera with auto-focus for your next science project, Poindexter.

Hmm, aluminum is supposed to be non-magentic, but a strong enough magnetic field can still affect it.

I am sure some sap will turn this on its side as proof that the magnetic therapy bracelets do actually work, despite not even having a magnetic field strong enough to hold a paperclip through a piece of paper.

Al is not "magnetic", but it is a conductor, so the magnetic field of the coil induces electrical eddy currents in it. Enough current, and it will heat up.

Aluminum doesn't normally lase (or glow red). Molten aluminum is almost always silver in color. It can glow, but usually not until well past the boiling point where aluminum-oxide starts to form as it sublimes. It seemed like it was glowing before that in this video. It could simply be this was some sort of aluminum alloy that does lase (sometimes used in teaching aluminum welding).

Am I the only one expecting the wizard to levitate?

Focus.

Light, for christs sake.

I was waiting for that part. Wizard, I am disappoint.

But still, where'd the lighter-fluid come from?

I really wish FARK would stop posting links to places such as Live Leak that steal videos with no acknowledgement of where they come from.

For this case the YouTube induction heater levitation melting aluminum, Uploaded by imsmoother on Jan 17, 2010 was fairly easy to find, and it contains a link to the poster's page, Induction Heater Tutorial, to provide background on what is being shown.

Smart enough to levitate and melt aluminum, too farking stupid to figure out how to operate a camcorder.

Infra red contamination on the video camera CCD sensor, it was picking up IR which usually looks red or purple. Maybe it has a weak IR filter, heh, probably a Sony. To your eye it would not have looked that color.

Well as it's the submitter that posted it, and not fark. g/l with that. Until then try to keep the butthurt in check. the rest of us really couldn't care.

Any of you Fark dorks want to give me the low down on how that thing works?

Cliff's notes version - I don't have all freaking day to listen to you gush just because one of the cool kids finally talked to you.

It's like when I'm farking your mom, and your brother eddy comes along and demands I fark him too.

Am I the only one thinking that there should be a way to weaponize this?

Of course, on further pondering it would probably be a lame weapon; most guns use shaped projectiles that are already aerodynamic to a degree (as well as affected by the rifling of a barrel). This would probably just go splat against a surface.

/Gilda Radner moment: ...Nevermind...

You're seeing black-body radiation due to its temperature; it seems to have been heated well past the melting point. ("Lasing" refers to a type of emission entirely unrelated to this.)

wait, did this asshole not have a stuttering logitech webcam that was produced in 2002 he could have been filming this with to improve the video quality a tad?
to what do we owe this torture?
