Great project via Make!
I’d been aware of vortex cannons for quite some time, mostly as an interesting toy, and after I kept stumbling on the concept while touring the web, I decided I had to build my own. There’s something fascinating about taking a substance as ubiquitous and amorphous as air and transforming it into a coherent and persistent structure, almost like a crystal. I also hoped to find some use for my vortex cannon, perhaps to propel scents or give the touch of a ghost in a haunted house.
