Mad Scientist Builds Jet-Powered Office Chair

This is perfect for those times when you want to 'yeet' yourself out of the office.

After building a pulsejet engine using carbon fiber and fireplace sealant in a previous video, the YouTube channel Integza takes on a journey to see whether his build can generate thrust or not. Then, as anyone would, he tests his jet engine by sticking it on an office chair and spinning around, because why not? 

In case you don't know, a pulsejet engine is a type of jet engine and is a lightweight form of jet propulsion. Combustion occurs in pulses and it works by accelerating a contained mass of air and then breathing in a fresh mass of air to restore it. Throughout the video, Integza tries to measure and increase the thrust on the engines.

Once he gains as much thrust as he can, he uses it to 'move something' by turning his office chair into a lever by calling levers the "biggest hack in physics." While he admits that this wasn't the application he had in mind when he was building the pulsejet engine, the experience proved to be terrifying and a lot of fun at the same time. Enjoy!
