Campfire lighter flint.
This is basically a huge, 1/2" diameter x 2.5" long lighter flint, mounted in a case that has a sharp steel blade positioned so you can scrape it against the flint, creating a shower of sparks. The "Spin" and "Rotate" videos are actually video showing what it looks like when you scrape the flint with a file, generating even more sparks.
