As you can see Stormed and I had a nice conversation about the "Random Oscillating Magnetic Pendulum", and he came up with the idea to make it portable. So then we started coming up with ideas on how to do this. Apparently I finished my design first though, so if you see another instructable much like this one posted by Stormed, don't say that this has already been posted, since his design varies from my own and without his comments, I may never have actually thought of this.
After much trial and error, my Pocket ROMP is complete. Now when I go to the DMV and the batteries in my handheld goes dead (cause we all know how long it takes), I can take this out and perhaps even inspire other people there to make their own.
Here's how I built my Portable.
Warning: Do this in a well vented area due to fumes. The soldering iron also becomes hot, so be careful with it.
