Homemade Wind Tube!

About: I Love 3d printing!

First of all wind tubes are basically a fan that can levitate or shoot up a object. Wind tubes can be expensive but you can make your own for about $30-50. for the first step you will get a box fan from target or something.

Step 1: Step: 2 Mount the Fan

next you will place your fan on some chairs or something.

Step 2: Step: 3 Paper Lining

Next wrap paper around the an to ensure your object does not fall out.

now you can play with your wind tube!

    Fun. Mythbusters took a whole bunch of straws, enough to cover the surface of the fan and stacked them. That will direct the air flow straight more even with less buffetting. (If you wanted to)

    This is fun to see how many things that you can get hovering over the fan. I have gotten 3 balloons floating at once before.
