Your microwave can do more than reheat yesterday’s meatloaf. With some modifications you can turn it into a cannon. The Backyard Scientist shows you how.

Video Summary

To turn a microwave oven into a cannon, first you need to wire the power input to the microwave transformer. Next, connect the transformer to the voltage capacitor and the capacitor to the magnetron. Remember to keep the whole thing grounded or it will not work. The cannon will be able to affect a light bulb up to two feet away.
