” Typewriter Cocktail Machine “

by morskoiboy (+)

One day I had this funny idea, and I thought, “Well, there’s really nothing stopping me…” At first it was just for fun. But then…Then I drew up a sketch. And then another one.  I started tinkering around and, to make a long story short, there came a point when I realized that, for the first time in my life, I was going to build something with my own two hands. So, after a couple months of fine-tuning the communication vessels, I became the sole owner in the world of such a strange piece of work:

My piece has buttons working as pumps and has pipes instead of wires. It also has a display like any other electronic panel board, but as opposed to using liquid crystals as in electronic displays, my machine’s display functions via multicoloured syrups.

So, if you’re interested, let me explain this contraption and the mechanism that makes it work. At the top of the machine there is a slot into which a bottle with alcohol, water, or even milk can be screwed. The essence of the art here lies in the ability of the syrups or liqueurs to tint the neutral color of the liquid. In the picture below you can see the connector itself and the regulator (which is actually an IV Rate Flow Regulator I picked up in a drugstore), which opens or closes off the air flow into the bottle and thus acts as an on/off switch.  Once it enters the machine, the liquid spreads across the fourteen tubules.

Each tubule is connected to one of the 14 transparent display segments. With the help of special regulators located on the side of the machine, the liquid’s flow speed in each segment can be regulated. Pressing the buttons on the keyboard injects the corresponding ingredients into the display, which tints different segments of the display and thus produces letters. You can try to imagine that each letter can have a taste (L-Lime, A-Apple), a color (R-Red, G-Green), or a name (K-Kahlua, J-Jagermeister).

Now I can literally taste the flavor of my words!

Syringes function as the machine’s buttons. A valve connects to the syringes and turns them into pumps.
In the back of the keyboard, there are slots for the bottles with colored beverages in them. There are 26 total slots, one for each letter of the Latin alphabet. When a syringe stem goes up, liquid is taken from the bottle connected to it.

I should notice this machine is not finished yet. This is not a complete ready-to-use product. This is a prototype, which is not very reliable and fast to (dis)assemble, hard to wash. Just a concept which needs reworking and finetuning.

The guy is looking for (a) sponsor for his next cool machine. If any of you interested give him a shout (link)

Science // Troll Physics

Science That Makes You Bang Your Head On The Wall

Ever wished to fly to the moon? Ever wished to travel around the world with minimal cost, avoiding airport security? The Troll Scientists are here to give you a solution, or not…
Apparently, Troll Science is what the name suggests. Fake “scientific” ideas to make the world better, which are not true, for the sole purpose to troll people who know their science. Nonetheless, we really wished this science was real.

ENJOY

hahahah
