The LTD Stirling engine always impresses first time viewers with its simplicity and the apparent lack of a fuel source. This particular engine is made almost entirely out of recycled materials, so it's easy to build. You can get most of the parts for free, it needn't cost a lot to build.

The Stirling engine contains a sealed volume of air (this can be other gasses like helium!) that is repeatedly heated and cooled, causing it to expand and contract. When the air expands or contract this moves the diaphragm Inside of the displacer cylinder there is a piston called the displacer, this moves air between the top and bottom of the coke can which are hot and cold, this allows the engine to continue turning rather than the air expanding and staying like that a long as heat is applied. This particular engine uses a polystyrene displacer.
