Construction design!

Recommended Posts

This is an example of construction design. What do you think, is this cool or just stupid and dangerous or is it perhaps art? Would you consider building a project along these lines? 8)

Well, looks like someone has a PCBphobia! ;D
Yeah, I guess it looks like art. I don't know if it does something, looks like a counter: Perhaps you could try capture it?

I've built some pretty bad looking projects in my day, but nothing on this kind of scale.

I'm opting for a low-precision digital thermometer myself--given the mix of what looks like RCA cans in there. A vintage circuit to be sure.

I can go for leaning in the direction of art. It would look kind of cool, and a bit more stable, encapsulated in good-quality resin.

Only after seeing this, have I come up with some similar ideas that would make my wife roll her eyes. I could probably be talked into something like that. ;)

Well my first thoughts were, what a monstrosity :o. But then I realised it appears that every component there has a function, I can't help to be impressed 8). Although I do feel a kookaburra would have been a better component choice, its performance is far more superior then a Peacock, for a laugh ;D ;D ;D.

Hi All

If slightly off topic, sorry  :-[

Because air-wire construction is fast and fun, perhaps we might like a photo competition, not forgetting upload limts, of working circuits built this way?

What do you think?

Not too long ago I built a VHF oscilator like this because I couldn't get the damn thing to work on veroboard. ;D

Hi Chris,

It’s from the cover of a book but I can’t remember which book unfortunately! Maybe someone else knows which book it is?
It looks like it could be out of your homepage though!  ;)
B T W you must be a millionaire selling penny's for dollars! ;D ;D

Actually, The only thing I have ever sold are those the pcb keychains and that wasn't even through my website. :( Although they were a big hit at my HIgh school. 8)

That particular copper sculpture is something I made for my girlfriend... Ok, I'll admit, half of those things on the website I made for my girl friend... It was a little idea I had to market them on the internet, so far no luck. I guess I'm not appealing to the right demographic ???
YOu wouldn't know anything about marketing would you Ante? ;)
