I'm in an experimental mood and thought I'd try building a modern bellows system! Will it work? Let's find out! Also, head to squarespace.com/diyperks to save 10% off your first purchase of a website or domain using offer code PERKS
I hope you guys enjoyed this crazy build! It's been a wild journey trying to get this video released - firstly with the delays caused by the ideas that didn't work, and then ultimately by a HARD DRIVE FAILURE! Literally ALL the footage in this video was lost, and it was only thanks to some great data recovery fellows that you're seeing this at all. Backup system implemented now, fyi ;) because of these delays, this is actually quite an old video now (like 1 year) but I'm glad it's able to see the light of day as I think the final result is SUPER COOL! In hind sight I may not have started this project of perseverance, but it taught me such a lot in terms of which projects to make to show you guys and how experimental I can ultimately risk being. I know that basically none of you will make this, but the methodology ultimately settled upon is interesting and might have many more use cases. Either way it makes for interesting watching, so I hope you all enjoy it! ~Matt

A: Just needed to make it large so that it moves enough air to be useful. Ask away if you have any more questions :)

"....how experimental I can ultimately risk being." REALLY!?!?!? Man I wish more people would dream up projects like this and show it to people. That's were new ideas and innovation is born. I love the fact that you persevered and hope you would tackle more projects like this, maybe do something wacky like this as a series once in a while. This made me wanna subscribe, love what you do. Keep em coming

Big fan here, I love your video's, such inspiration they bring. but oh! I had an q; Would changing out the bearing gliders for your magflui system not up the potential power output and/or reduce noise ? My compliments to your out of the (air-) box thinking and switching from rail to fluid; only great minds can outthink themselves. Ly

the hole behind subwoofer blows air, due to to and fro motion of the speaker, u can adjust the size of the speaker and any required modification to turn in into air blower. I Think

One advantage over fans might be the volume aspect considering you could easily determine the volume of gas moved, where as fans require significantly more data to know that to the same precision. Slightly modified there may be tons of use cases for this

Just discovered this channel of yours and I have to say its just fantastic. I would say don't give up on this, I really believe you have a very interesting concept here and with some improvements (like adding some LED's xD) could be very viable.

I bet this would work great at stoking a fire like a Bello does. Maybe smaller scale. If you make it wider it will have to force more air out. I would definitely keep at it and see what else you can do with this.

This was fascinating to watch. Then to see your excitement when it started to work made me just as happy as you were. Phenomenal work buddy. I think you'll be able to upgrade this in time to work even better. I like your "don't give up" attitude. Well done buddy. I would try to sell these, I'd buy one. So very cool, lol get it.

Matt, an idea just popped...how about weight and water to counter the difference. So weight pulls it in one direction and then water enters the other side to pull it back and leaves the chamber to go back into the reservoir... A much smaller amount of Mercury can make a huge difference in the speed, or a powerful pump to keep the cost low.

You are not only brilliant. but adorable all around. I love watching your mind at play, seeing the awesome inventions/upcycles/repurposing projects and ideas you have come up with to tackle on your channel. These items are amazingly always useful and helpful - or just plain ol' brilliant and beautiful things to have around the house~! For example, I'd rather have THIS fan than 20 boring box fans! Right now I am working on the DIY home security system and the really loud remote control wireless Bluetooth speakers that you took outside and walked super far away from and they were still were superbly loud and clear - outside in an open area no less... I can't wait until I get them done! Those speakers will come in handy for my work as well as my pleasure. :D just one more thing, not to swell your head up too big - but you have an awesome way of communicating each step so that even to someone like me with very little carpentry/electrical/handiwork experience feels like I can take on these projects and have success! Your steps are covered very clearly, and you invoke an inspiration and a confidence that not only makes me want to run out there and buy up all the parts in the parts stores, but gives me the confidence to know that I can actually make use of those parts and build amazingly successful projects as long as I simply just follow what you do and say! Thanks for the way you teach it's a very rare skill. :D Thanks so much for the videos.

Double the output by building a redirect for the bellows "pull" direction. It might need to be on a separate output, but it should outdo the fans.

He could easy double the air flow with a one way vaule on each end to bring air into the system and a vent on each side for air to come out. Instead of it just coming out the one side

It would be interested to see a CPU heat sink built like jail bars where the air transfers thru the bellows output. However, I think a CPU application is the wrong application as we already have water cooling for CPUs. Maybe something like this would be better utilized transferring air through the coils of an AC unit to cool a home. Yes the bellow may have to be the size of a closet, but with enough magnets and pumps it may use less energy than the fans.

No se porque le ha puesto esos paneles a forma de válvula si lo único que hace el aire es entrar y salir, no hay una circulación, dejar el hueco abierto sin esos paneles ovalados daria exactamente el mismo resultado. Es como usar un paraguas bajo el mar, no tiene sentido.
