OK video, kinda interesting but non-negligibly annoying with silly graphics and sound effects and the end is intolerable

anyhow for sure these wolves might evolve some interesting adaptations, but i don't see them "becoming seals" since obviously there are already actual seals in that area occupying that niche. plus not having legs obviously doesn't give the seal any advantage at eating salmon heads (otherwise they would already?) she even mentions otters -- i could see wolves becoming more otter like but not really seal like

So how far can this concept be extended to force two objects together. I understand that it is very hard to keep any substantial charge difference, the primary problem being due to the electrical breakdown of air. But just as a quick concept, if a powered device produces a charge on itself, and that charge induces a charge on another object like a wall, and the two are only separated by a strong insulator, presumable a better one than air, then what sorts of forces are possible between them. I know someone before must have tried something like this, has anyone heard of anything like it, even just some sort of demonstration.
