How it works – The Incandescent Lightbulb

Animated presentation explaining the inner workings of the common incandescent bulb. Referenced sources such as Minority Report, Tron, Star Trek, and several pieces of Adobe stock footage for the style.

I thought it would be interesting to take a mundane, yet otherwise mysterious object or occurance, such as a batteries, televisions, resonance, or static electricity, and break it down explaining exactly how and why it works.

Created as part of a series, I’d like to thank the following sources for providing invaluable info:
