Body Light 1.0 - An Experiment in Human Conduction
Want your son or daughter to place well in that upcoming science fair? Look no further. This kit is extremely popular with science students worldwide!
The Body Light 1.0 kit is one of our most popular educational kits. This demonstrates the body's ability to conduct electricity and to use that conducted electricity to illuminate a high brightness LED or other type of lamp. When a person (or chain of persons) places their hands on two (2) externally placed conductive electrodes (spheres in the above video), electricity will flow from one electrode through that person and into the second electrode closing the circuit, and therefore causing the LED or lamp to illuminate. This is a really fun circuit, especially for children, and demonstrates the principle of human conductivity. With two or more people, you can create long chains of conduction as is demonstrated in the above video.
We are now offering a complete deluxe kit that includes everything shown in the photos below including brass electrodes, high power LED and socket, professionally CNC'd birch base, and all mounting hardware! (Note: the kit shown in the video is the prototype version and not the final version that is shown in the photos below.)
