    Indiana Jones smoke ring effect revealed!?

    I don't know if anybody found out how the smoke ring works, but I found a neat video on how it might have been made:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ayaiArVkpA4

    It's at around :28 seconds. I wish I could build one at home so I could experience the effect 24/7 I tried to embed the video but it didn't work so I just put the link~

    There was a kid on the late night show with David Letterman last week who had a home built version of the same thing.

    If a little kid can make one, I am sure anyone can.

    We actually made these in my Physics class at BYU. They're a lot of fun to play with. Didn't make one that big though. Impressive piece of work.

    Here's a page I found that explains them really well. Vortex Generators they are called. http://www.waynesthisandthat.com/airblasters.html

    Our revels now are ended. These our actors, As I foretold you, were all spirits and Are melted into air, into thin air: And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, The cloud-capp'd towers, the gorgeous palaces, The solemn temples, the great globe itself, Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff As dreams are made on, and our little life Is rounded with a sleep. mycroft16 on Twitter

    Those "Air Zooka" things you can buy at Spencers works the same way, spray some fog or smoke inside and you get that same effect.

    I don't know why this is such a mystery... I mean, Universal Studios FL introduced the same special effect in it's Twister theater show like... 8 years ago?

    Just because you know how it works doesn't mean that other people do. I posted it because I remember a lot of people saying they wondered how they did it. Plus the video itself it is pretty awesome. I remember going to that Twister ride in Florida but I don't remember them using this type of effect.

    That really is a cool effect. I remember riding Indy: Temple of the Crystal Skull a few years ago. Many of the effects were improved from the DL version. But the smoke ring was one of the most surprising.

    The effect itself isn't that complicated, but it looks great.

    Heck, my grandfather can blow smoke rings when smoking a cigar - but it isn't as cool as the Disney version

    I actually do not know how it works, but figured someone would know after all these years.
