Good luck!!


I will keep posting until it is ready, but I doubt anyone will come close to a correct guess!

Please do not suggest "free energy machine".... I know it looks like one of those goofy youtube scam videos! I may ride a 20 foot tall bike with no helmet, but I am not crazy! My point being.... what I am building here will actually work and serve a real purpose!

Are the 5 photos all there is at this point? The +13 won't open.

I recall seeing a video/photos of some sort of electric ?... rock splitter/pulverizer/crusher/atomizer...?
I'm thinking the cylinder will be used for wrapping wire for 'motor/magnetic windings.

It's a magnet for catching 'steelhead' trout...:ROFLMAO:

Strange, I just realized that all the photos don't even open! I guess to see them at full size you will have to venture to my personal page here...


Should be easier to see the details on the actual post I made.
I didn't want to upload them here and start bloating the image server on AZ.

OK, now that I've seen all the photos, ...it's an electronic tik tac toe game.

Interesting! But how do you explain the round more complex device with the gear motor and the small black box. There are three distinct parts to the project, each one requiring a very complex and powerful microcontroller. Also notice the RF antenna!

looks like a pile of servo motors in one photo and then add in several mics.
You went the Adrunio route. I prefer Pic 18fk22.

Just one motor. It will also have an encoder attached for precision reading of rotation data.
No "Duino" flavored electronics in my lab sir! I am old school - assembly and bare metal only around here!
I often use PIC as well, but for raw speed and assembly, AVR is and will always be the king.

Those items that look like mics.... they are in fact tiny little vibration motors!

Interesting guesses!

This device has nothing to do with food, transportation, photography, farming, and it is not an appliance.
It does have to do with events that will unfold in the future.
Cryptic clue!

Funny - Time Machine is probably the "closest" guess, but this device will actually work, so it's not just a prop. The machine will not do anything "impossible", although I guarantee that those who experience it will think otherwise!

Nope.... far more technical and unusual.

The goal with this project is to outdo the "shock and awe" of my SkyWalker Tallbike. So far that has been my most jaw dropping project of all time. Of course this has nothing to do with bikes or travel, but the end goal is similar.... leave the bystanders confused, perplexed, and in complete disbelief of what they just witnessed, even the tech heads!

it is a wooden clock that has an unusual display.
