  1. YouTube Science! Part 9 - Jacob's Ladder!

    A Jacob's Ladder is probably the easiest, simplest high voltage display. It can also be extremely dangerous.
    There is always at least one in any cinematic mad science lab. I have seen some sets with several! Typically, these are naked, with nothing to prevent the unwary from touching an electrode.
    Nevertheless, it's a high impact build anyone can do. Acquiring the transformer is the hardest part.

  3. YouTube Science! Part 8 - Van Der Graaff!

    You've probably see the Van Der Graaff generator making people's hair stand comically on end. It can also produce some impressive arcs.

    Budding mad scientists might want to include just suck a machine in their display!



    Happy Haunting!

  4. YouTube Science! Part 7 - Wimshurst Machine!

    With its spinning disks and satisfying sparks, the Wimshurst machine is an excellent addition to any mad lab!

    This is a real simple (and small) version pretty much anyone can build:


    This gives you the basic idea. If you want to make it larger, add a motor, etc., building this little one will give you the knowledge you need!

    Here's a video showing another DIY version, but bigger!

  5. Building Worlds

    World Building. You've certainly heard the term. What is it? Is it necessary in haunting?

    Worldbuilding can be defined as the process of constructing a fictional universe. Strictly speaking, anything that happens in that universe "builds" it, so "worldbuilding" is only used to describe the invention of fictional details for some reason other than the convenience of a currently ongoing story, up to and including simply engaging
