About

To all crazy engineers out there, you are not alone!

Frankly, engineering is partly fun and mostly boring stuff like testing and documentation. It only takes a healthy dose of craziness to make everything fun and you also learn more, sometimes!

Just don’t forget, I am a professional and know what I am doing most of the times! But if you try what I show, you may get badly injured or even die! So don’t try to do what I do at home. Just learn by watching.

  1. Hello from Russia =)
    I’m radiophysicist. And your video is very funny!
    I understand that it’s look like a comedy, but take care of yourself =)
    Thank you!

  2. Mehdi,
    I love your videos! Thank you very much for the entertainment and education!
    P.S. And special thanks to RWJ for introducing me to you :)

  3. Without electrocuting yourself, could you explain what 3 phase service, or power is? I’m not the sharpest tool in the shed. Love the video’s. Thank you for teaching us all.

  4. The videos and acting are fantastic! When I can see through the tears of my laughter, I actually learn something. The PWM diagram somehow sunk into my memory.
    Thanks!

    I have been trying to learn electronics (as a biologist). I am impressed how fast the processors can make measurements. For example, a ultrasonic range detector can make some numerous measurements every second. It might make a humor-filled learning video by setting up a fast moving actuator to test the limits on the speed of measurements.

    BTW, West Coast or East Coast?

  5. Mehdi,

    What do you do for a living? I recently got a job as an Electronics Engineering Tech and I’m loving it!

  6. love your stuff, and you have a cool work place!! one day i wish to be surrounded with stuff like yours…

    some ideas
    Can you show what happens when you reverse the current on a capacitor
    can you pass current through a gas like argon?
    can you over spin a DC motor or AC motor?
    why is 3 phase more efficient? does 477 VAC hurt?
    does water in an isolated container act as a capacitor or resistance and if you have pure h2o is it less or more conductive. (browns gas)
    unfortunately i know the answers to most of these but they could be fun for others.

  7. Dude… Thanks to you I am even more proud to be an geek !!!

    Keep on experimenting in the name of science !!

    Here is a suggestion ….watch an LED go through the different colors of death after applying a voltage above spec !!

    • “The colors of death” on LEDs are very nice.
      So if you just do not have the right colors at hand: overvoltage some red or white ones….

  8. I’ve gotta ask, are those mistakes real or staged for “educational/comedic purposes”?
    I can’t tell if you’re ballsy or dumb.
    A riot either way! Cheers!
    Engineer Hard or Die Trying

    • Of course I am ballsy, who ever admits they are dumb?!
      Well, I know what I am doing (I hope!) and try my best not to hurt myself. So if you can’t tell, it means I am a good actor!

  9. Keep up the awesome work . Your videos are AWESOME AWESOME AWESOME! Your videos are fun and educational and good way to learn about physics.You make physics seem interesting and fun. I can’t wait to see more of your crazy physics videos :D

  10. It’s 3 AM and I almost peed a little watching your videos. I mean, a lot of it is simple “don’t cross wires” stuff but still. I cried a little during the “This is not steve. Wrong number” bit.
