Busy days in the workshop

As most parts are finally manufactured, with only a few missing and a very high perfection rate so far, we get to start to assemble pieces together.

Today's quiz: How do you think all these pieces below come together?


Why, it's a laser blaster, of course! :D

Here's Tim and Aksel evaluating a successful test of the blaster device.


Just kidding!

It's actually about half of the new engine. The pieces above constitute the engine axle and one of the engine walls designed by Tim with its 24 super duper strong magnets. The other wall was still being aligned with its magnets by our hardworking people at Elkraft, and should arrive tomorrow. Currently there's no active powering, but since the hybrid ball bearings from SKF impose so little friction, the engine starts in fact rotating on its own! That's a major engineering feat which few others have pulled off.

Stay tuned! There are rumours of full scale tests commencing next week!
