This is a Corona Spinner or ion motor
This is the simplest electric motor! At high voltage, sharp points leak charge into the air, generating an ion wind and a hissing noise.
It is a rotor with sharp points that will spin when balanced on a terminal of an electrostatic generator.
The Corona Spinner was made as an accessory for the SparKIT Miniature Electrostatic Generator, but is also suitable for use with other Wimshurst machines and similar.
Picture above shows the Corona spinner attached to a terminal of a SparKIT (SparKIT machine is, of course, not included).
Supplied as three parts which fit loosely together:
Crocodile clip with needle bearing

I am a 14 year old high school student, and developed the SparKIT Wimshurst machine kit as a science fair project in 2016. I then ran a successful kickstarter campaign and with help from my dad, refined and brought it to market.
