Tornado Sim: Not in Kansas Any More

We likes us some tornadoes around here, especially since one of our esteemed colleagues lives in Tornado Alley, and sometimes shudders in fear that he may be tempest tos't some night à la Wizard of Oz. But no need to fear when you have this tornado on your desk, a store-bought model similar to the kit and homemade tornado simulators we've shown you.


This 24-inch high tornado demonstration model includes seven experiments you can perform with it, and then you can make up some of your own involving Barbie dolls and so forth. Wonder if this thing is really noisy—might be fun to have one running on the desktop 24/7. Office looks like a tornado hit it? Here's your excuse.
