Original Drinking Bird

Product Description

Another classic science toy brought back to life.

The infamous Drinking Bird has been popular for many decades. Drinking Bird works using properties of thermodynamics, converting thermal energy into mechanical energy.

How does it work? First dunk your bird's head in a glass or mug filled with water. The bird's wet head cools from evaporation - that condenses with the liquid vapour in the head creating a partial vacuum. The liquid in the body is warmer hence at higher pressure and rises up the tube to fill the lower pressure head. When it tilts forward it lets the liquid drain back and the cycle repeats. It works much more slowly on a very humid day where the head and body temperature are close to each other. The process continues indefinitely when the water is topped up.

Should yours stop working, try dipping the head in vinegar for an hour - the head collects minerals from the evaporating water - vinegar will dissolve most of them.

Features:

  • Watch the bird drink (indefinitely) from the mug.
  • Retro.
