CD Burning

Ever wondered what happens to a CD if you put it in the microwave? It’s actually pretty cool!

I put a CD in there and in about 4 seconds it was “done”. It actually looks kinda cool, almost like a fractal image or something.

There is a video in addition to still images. Apologies to Office Depot– their discs were the only ones I had on hand. Their discs are my favorite low cost CD medium!

The video shows a CD upright in the little blue holder and one flat. Watch the fireworks! Each disk was in there for about 4 seconds. I didn’t want to melt it or destroy the microwave. I would expect that a weaker microwave would take longer and a stronger one less time.
