In NightHawkInLight’s creation, a current running through a coiled heating element wrapped around a larger coil-shaped structure provides the heat for roasting, while an adjacent air gun nozzle blasts a flow of air up and over the rounded end of a hot dog.

Coanda Effect revisited, meanwhile running for Governor of CA. This is true. Absolutely true write in worthy..

I am, for reasons deeply ingrained in my self consciousness, reminded of something that has not bothered me at all for decades regarding my firsthand past experience dealing with the Coanda Effect. I was driving through Beverly Hills years ago and we noticed a huge mansion for sale/open house. The size of which suggested surely a famous Hollywood director or producer would own. So we figured we would stop in and look around. I was asked by the realtor, I believe, to sign the register. Jed Clampett.

Rube Goldberg would be proud.

You can get almost the same effect by sticking your wiener in the power port of your car, but I wouldn't recommend it.

I'm waiting for the fusion powered model.

The dripping and splashing grease is a bonus feature.

Can we talk about " levitating hot dogs " in polite company ?
