Hi everybody!

A couple of month ago I build Dr. Brain .
Dr. Brain is able to listen, to see and to talk.
But he is not bale to write.
So I build the amazing "Ticker Machine" for Dr. Brain and other calculating devices with
a seriell interface.

It is easy to build the parts are easy to get.

Step 1: Parts and materials

You need:

a thermo printer (this is operated by 24V and has a serial interface you can buy this on ebay)
a wooden plate or something similar
a glas dome hat fits on the plate 
a box or a paper tube for the stand
some stain
some pieces of beach wood fpr the paper holder
some brass parts, screws, nuts and gears.

And don´t forget to "glue some gears on it"  ;-)
What a fantastic idea! I might just have to make one of these. Thanks for the idea!

I am really proud about it :-) <br>Thanks a lot!
I visit Hack-A Day several times a day, <br>mainly for inspiration...<br>I'm actually surprised at the number of people from here,<br>I see on there...<br>Anyways, wasn't one of your other 'Ibles feature before on Hack -a - Day?<br>Also be careful with that digital painting!
Nicely done and a very cool re-invention of a teletype. a hardcopy of an email coming through is so cool.
You never cease to amaze Mr. Steam! More steampunk genius! I'd love to see a video of Dr. Brain &ldquo;talking&rdquo; to the ticker;-) 5 stars, since that's all I can give, plus a vote in the laser challenge. <br>
you never cease to amaze me bro. five stars though i would've given you 23 stars. after that message i encourage you to make more like this.
Thank you very, very much :-)
Where do you get Glass domes this big ?
Good Morning,<br> <br> I bought it from Selva: www.selva.de<br> <br> And here is the direct link to the domes: <a href="http://www.selva.de/product_info.php?cPath=&upage=1&sPath=&products_id=Dom%20421025" rel="nofollow">CLICK &nbsp;</a>&nbsp;you can also buy a wooden stand for the dome No. VI.<br> <br> I used the dome No. VI for the printer.<br> <br> <br> With kind regards,<br> <br> Horatius Steam
Great style, I love it!
5 STARS!!!!....
Completely awesome to have the autoprint emails come out! I have seen other instuctables that pick up tweets and other incoming messages.. Heck, if people still used faxes, that would be funny, too (except for the junk faxes advertising discount travel).
We are using this in RPG&Acirc;&acute;s to guide the players and give them hints and messages. <br> <br>With kind regards, <br> <br>H. Steam
AHHH! I'm getting ir/rational Redux flashbacks! <br> <br>try playing this game: http://jayisgames.com/games/irrational-redux/
Dear Sir Horatius.Steam <br> <br> <br>Once again an absolutely crazy object!!!&quot; <br> <br>Five stars worth and given ;-))))) <br> <br> <br>Yours Aeon Junophor
I hope you've entered this into the laser contest?
Nop, there is no laser inside.... <br> <br>
Sorry, this was a misunderstanding by me. Thank you for the advise. <br>I just entered it. :-)
