The Magic Hourglass (or more prosaically the egg timer)

Postby Eric » Thu Jan 14, 2021 12:58 am

In ancient times, when the elves still inhabited middle earth, and the reign of men had not yet come, Peter-Gandalf the Grey created a magical challenge called the hourglass.
All traces of these past events disappeared with the Balrog in the depths of internet memory.

Today, Peter-Gandalf the white challenged me to face this very old trial.
Here is the result, imbued with the 'Might and Magic' forces of magnetism :o

No trick! Nothing glued to the ceiling ;-)

Great Tychi!

I actually found it, buried in the depths of the forum, in this old thread from 2009 :o . Bravo to you!

I'm very busy right now, but as soon as I have some time, I get going. I have some ideas on this that I would like to test ;)
I managed to hang 9 spheres vertically on a single one, but I'm not sure I can make a bridge by duplicating my system. I have to work on it and see what is concretely achievable ;)

One more thing to do on my todo list :roll:

See you (much) later ....
