Now this is kind of cool. A team from the Maastricht University Medical Center revived a 115-year-old X-ray device that had been sitting in a Dutch warehouse. Wired Science reports:
Aside from a modern car battery and some wires, the researchers used only the original equipment, including an iron cylinder wrapped in wire to transfer electrical energy from one circuit to another and a glass bulb with metal electrodes at each end.
The powered up device truly looks like something out of a B-grade horror movie, as the video here shows.
