I think I can make one, I'll do it later, I'm bussy as is. I found a seller on ebay who sells them for 10 cents a piece. Also I think I might be able to use highlighter, other people use it with black lights, so it might work. I'll time it with a 555 driving a transistor driving the leds. Time toggled by a potentiometer.
hehe, i made that bottom one.:). almost got the production ones done so soon you can all have one ;)
Yeah, I saw this before, either someone posted it in an old thread or it was on somewhere...MAKE Mag listing for the Time Fountain. Aug. 2006
Ditto - I could stare at this thing for hours though! :-D
Definitely a candidate for Clarkes Law IMHO
P.S. he should really get that dripping tap seen to!
I think I can redesign that with more simple components (like no programming)
Go on, then, you've got a week or two left ...
I dunno if I can do it, make it all up, order uv leds, shipping, etc. I'll try though
I've thought about it, and I don't think I can order up the LEDs in time, especially since most good ones are from china. Maybe I'll do the project later. Inless someone want sto give me a link to inexpensive high brightness uv leds that are sold somewhere in the us, preferably near PA.
Does this help any?
Beautiful absolutely beautiful, that's all i can think, except for how to build this i already have a circuit plan forming in my head involving parts from and old radio a basic flasher circuit and now all I need is some steady drops...
I actually saw this (I think it was this or maybe something very similar) at the MIT museum. It was really cool.
Thats Fu&*ing crazy!!
somebody needs to get a hold of that guy or figure this out an post it
Go to the actual YouTube page, and it says...The credit for this device belongs to Nate True. You can learn how to build your own Time Fountain at: http://cre.ations.net/creation/the-time-fountain
Is there one of those emoticon things that means you jaw just bounced off the keyboard?
