Vacuum Bazookas, Electric Rainbow Jelly* is Neil Downie's first volume of brilliant designs for experimental science. Create a control box and a variable vibration motor. Experiment with it in four of Downie's projects: the elegant Hovering Rings, a new more flexible version of the Vibrocraft, the quirky Of Morse and Men (electric pencil) and the stubborn Gravity Reversal. We'll build the components in the morning and divide into four separate workshops to redesign and experiment in the afternoon.
