When it comes to creating something out of nothing, Steve Spangler takes the cake. The Steve Spangler Science team recently challenged Steve to create a simple homopolar motor by using objects that he could find around his home. The trick to homopolar motors is the use of electromagnets and a lack of polarity change. It's complicated, so we were sure that Steve would have trouble. Much to the surprise of everyone, Steve not only accomplished the (what we thought to be) impossible, but he did it twice. Steve was so proud that he wanted to give both of his designs to you. It's a Sick Science 2-for-1 with the Electromagnetic Motor.
