Biefeld-Brown Electrokinetic Apparatus (another Ion Thruster)

In a previous Instructable I describe in detail how to build an asymmetrical capacitor thruster device, demonstrating the Biefeld-Brown effect. This video shows a variation on one of Townsend Brown's many inventions, in this case what he patented as an "Electrokinetic Apparatus."  It operates on the same principles as the asymmetrical capacitor thrusters.
