Most of the lightbulbs in your home are probably equivalent to 60 to 100 watts. Above, “electrical overload” fan Photonicinduction fires up a 20,000 watt halogen bulb in a small lab space.
The 20,000-watt halogen bulb is typically used on large film sets, is almost 2 feet long, and uses garage door springs as filaments.
After giving the bulb a test run, Photonicinduction turns off the autoexposure on the camera to allow the viewers to experience the full brightness of bulb.
