Also maybe instead of using the circuit in the video to prank, you could use it as intruder alarm, light switch based on room light, or whatever else! It is a useful circuit. Just be careful around high voltage!

You got that right. "accidentally" being the keyword. I always laugh at the people who comment stupid crap like "this dude is so dangerous, im surprised hes not dead, clearly he doesnt know what hes doing if he electrocutes himself 20x a video".. like no dude, Mehdi knows SO MUCH of what hes doing that he can be dangerous safely because hes an electronics genius. this is 100% all for show. anybody with even a small understanding of what hes doing can clearly see this. He knows EXACTLY what he's doing.

One of the great aspects of these videos is the demonstration of picking yourself up (sometimes literally) after your plan fails, figuring out why it failed, and perhaps improving the design. This resilience and willingness to change design is a pair of qualities too many students struggle to acquire. This teacher suspects (and does not mind) that you have preplanned "oopsies."

Anyway I have a project I am not sure how to get working, I have made every stair in my house light up with a motion sensor, problem is even when there is no movement the the sensors keep kicking on and off and I don't know why. So I thought it would be cool if it was possible to make a Lazer trip sensor with like a min timer so that once you trip it, it will keep the lights on for like 1 min then shut off. I have right now a motion sensor at the top of the stairs and bottom connected in series. So any ideas how to maybe make a Lazer trip work instead??

Hi Mehdi, the reason electrolytic capacitors behave diodes when reverse biased is because they actualy are diodes with so bad diode characteristics and so large parasitic capacitance that today we use them as capacitors only.
