YouTuber Boils Water with His Bare Hands

The experiment has to be seen to be believed.

We all know that water needs a heat source to boil. This is quite evident. But what if you could boil water using just your bare hands? This would be quite a miracle indeed.

In this video, YouTuber The Action Lab achieves such a feat. He begins by using a hand boiler which is a flask containing a green liquid. When he puts the flask in his hand the liquid begins to bubble up and rise up the flask. It is quite a sight to see.

Then the YouTuber takes it a step further deciding to boil water in a see-through jar. We have to admit at first we thought he would fail at this task. But The Action Lab has a very special technique to do this.

He reduces the pressure above the water so that it boils at a lower temperature i.e. your hand's temperature. He does this using a vacuum chamber kit. With the help of an electrical pump, the pressure above the water is altered enough that the substance begins to boil right on the YouTuber's hands. Wow, what a feat!

Never one to leave his audience unsatisfied, The Action Lab continues to produce even more hand-boiling experiments. Watch the video to find out what they are.
