Thats Knarly! Nice.
Actually CuO + Aluminum powder mixed (sensored ratio) makes and awesome target to hit with a laser or bullet even. It can be used to coat a paper target or as a loose mound. It is quite Pyrophoric stuff! Mix outdoors and away from heat or friction. Throws white hot molten Aluminum oxide and a BIG brown cloud of copper crystals into the air!Stand well back, grab a a spray can, and let the laser cook it. (flash powder is optional)
Just kidding, but superheating some thermite (outside!!!!) could be fun
Funny you should say that, because last week I added a "plug" to my little box,Might mount it into a PSU but run it off of wall power and have the PSU give the voltage instead of batteries. That way, it can constantly put out power instead of slowly weakening as the batteries die.
