Watch the scary power of a microwave oven make plasma and burn things

Yowza. Here’s a crazy rigged contraption that uses microwave energy from cavity magnetron to generate plasma and burn the heck out of things faster than you can warm a Hot Pocket. We can see it squeeze out plasma in a lightbulb, shatter glass and make basically anything burn. It’s a neat exercise to show how powerful microwaves are.

Impressive clip, but the artillery is what got my attention. Looking into it appears they are in the middle of war-torn Luhansk doing these videos.
