What is it?


Depends who you ask. Some might say it's something to trip over. Others might call it a naive, stubborn attempt to build by hand something that's designed to made from machined parts. There's no denying that it certainly is big, and unless attached to an electric motor, pretty useless.

But it does deserve to be properly documented before being broken up and dumped in the trash. (Or maybe I could plant something in it?)


Closeup, going in for the kill....

More on this white elephant tomorrow: what it does, and how we made it. And maybe even why.

It looks like some sort of automatic flipbook thing. You look through the top, the motor spins and flips through the images? I bet that has a real name, but I'm too lazy to look it up!
