Yost designed his own version of a concentric field generator, or a device that charges with a radial gradient. It consisted of a rotating Plexiglas disc with twelve metallic segments. Static charge could be increased by grounding the brushes, spinning the disc in a magnetic field, or increasing the number of segments.
