It's got to be a spoof - the guy couldn't have been that inept. OK, maybe he's an NRA supporter and he could be, but I don't believe the editor would have left that in a supposedly serious training video.

This reminds me of a slight incident 20 years ago. Testing an Xray generator LC resonator at a customer's site (US/Frog medical company). Our Scotyland lab HV breakdown test kits all had inbuilt discharge. The frog one did not. Whilst reconnecting the M8 brass nuts with a spanner I managed to have both hands connected to each end of the resonator. ~8Joules discharge, spanner bounced off the 5m high concrete roof! RHS forefinger had marks displaying the "skin effect", a weekly experience whence probing HV prototypes - 6kV @ 100kHz (+ harmonics!) and also the HV side (upto 150kV). A rather pleasant Indian engineer that I worked beside with described such white skin patches as "The skin effect". Yup, this is most definitely a rather entertaining spoof. P.S. I have been in a neural comma, off and in, for 19 months, so the brain is now just adjusting to being sentient again. Cycling is very bad for your health!!! I was about to make an apology to the frogs, however why does LibreOffice Writer not go the full distance with readline?

It surely is an electronic version of jackass. The circuit board he is "testing" is surely not a realistic test. ESD tests are done while running (the electronics that is, not the tester) and in the housing too see if the discharge current runs outside the critical components. Well, you can't really SEE that, but you can see if it fails ;)

What's the NRA got to do with anything, troll?

I think the ESD one is deliberate. He could have re-shot the video. Does give the novice a pretty good idea of what not to do...

The ESD video is definitely deliberate humor, but it works -- it really is funny!

The first part of the video seems so obviously deliberate... but when the demo-guy finally takes the charged board from the desk, almost makes me cry!!! I totally agree with you in that the video itself is in fact very educative for ESD newcomers

Definitely, the video is staged... or the guy is trying to kill himself !! There are several videos in youtube in which Mehdi Sadaghdar does "risky demos". Below you've some examples: Shorcutting a huge capacitor... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DQJ8JX17J58 Playing with car batteries... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vRwIrbK8KDI

The video is definitely staged, or not! In any case I hope it gets the point through and we see a reduction in the number of engineers zapping themselves!

Hi Mehdi! So you are going to keep the mistery... Just take care of yourself, I would like to see more educative & funny videos like these in the future!!

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
