Wonderful build Gareth. Some of us are old enough to remember those tubes the first time around... they were things of wonder then and I think they still are.
Its hard to believe technology has advanced so much in a single lifetime.
Also good to see them in a timber case rather than a plastic one.
I've got one of Lady Ada's "ice tubes" in a clock on my desk at work but I think these look better.
Thanks for the nostalgia.

Hi Gareth.
I just noticed that all the robotic videos have disappeared from your youtube account. Is this your intention or accident?

Sorry for off topic, Tom.

Right now that's all I have: graphics.
And a level (sort of) that the character can go left - right and detect the interactable items.
I don't think that a browser build would be out of the question. Could be uploaded on itch.io (once it's ready).
Could also have a Windows, Linux and Android versions too (I don't have a Mac that I think is required for building a Mac / iOS version)

Also the other day I was thinking of changing it to be in isometric perspective (but don't know yet).

BTW if someone wants to contribute just send me a message.

Links / A new wing design for model aircraft / drones
« Last post by OddBot on February 06, 2020, 04:42:06 AM »
As a kid, my father taught me how to build gliders from balsa wood. He taught me how to shape the wing to provide lift.
This link shows a new, more efficient wing design that blows what my father taught me out of the water!

.... some 30 years after the collapse of the USSR?
Unfortunately I dropped one of these tubes onto my workbench... it bounced once before smashing and sucked me into its "Cold-War" vacuum, now I am stuck inside the NOS (NewOldStock).....help!!!

Miss U2 Hoff  ;)
I hope they develop these devices a bit faster, before they are outlawed....
On a good note parts of Switzerland are starting to revolt over the installation of the "5G" network. Lets hope "5G" collapses.

I miss you guys!
I played with one of these for a while last year.  I wanted to see if I could detect the hydrogen line with a custom built Yagi antenna attached to my telescope.

It's been a while, but...
Why is the phrase "2nd Fallout Shelter" so chillingly easy to understand the need for some 30 years after the collapse of the USSR?
