    Skip to 31:19.

    James Nolan Gandy offers a silent video of his drawing machines.
    Absolutely breathtaking work.
    This is all hand made mechanisms.
    What an honor to be included in the same section as this guy!

    My bit starts at 47:40.

    But you should watch my version of the YouTube video rather than this one because they down-scaled it to 720.

    So watch this instead in HD, please! (1080).

    Then go back to the VH video and drop in at 1:21:19 for the live video chat with the Vector Hack team and me.

    Thanks for mentioning James Nolan Gandy - that took me off for an internet voyage of tangental discovery...

    Here's a photo of some stupid thing I built in the mid 1990s which today's slanguage might call a "vector hack".

    It is an oscillator in the (if I remember correctly) 100s of KHz range that the operator sweeps the frequency of by toying with the ferrite slug visible projecting from the left of the coil. Notice the taped together LED / phototransistor by which a crude AM is accomplished. When given an input signal from an analog synthesizer, the effect of luminous squeezy filled in blobs floating by was not too shabby.

    This is in the same series of useless junk, I mean vector image experiments I wasted time building as the KQO effect previously mentioned in the CYGN-B discussion:

    I'm not sure just what qualifies as a vector hack, but way back when - I knew a guy that put a mirror on a small rubber motor mount and screwed the other side of the motor mount to a board. If you positioned the mirror in the path of his small HeNe laser and twanged the mirror...

    Both of the previous posts sound like fun to me. When I was about 14 or so, I started on my life long passion of designing and building speakers. I glued a tiny mirror chip on an 8 inch woofer and let just a little beam of sunlight in through the window to hit it. I through that was pretty cool.
