COOLEST TRIP TOY EVER!!
    #4293193 - 06/13/05 11:00 PM (11 years, 10 months ago)

I got this thing at Spencers for $20!! It's called "Stringin' It". Sounds gay but let me tell you how fucking cool this thing is!



The two arms have motors on the ends, to which a string is attached. The motors then spin the string and make patterns of waves. The arms are adjustable and can create a seemingly infinite number of waves depending on the distance of the arms, and the speed of the motors.

But you see, it is supposed to be used in a dark room, but my camera can't take pics in the dark. A series of LED lights then shine up at the string and strobe, pulse, and change color according to a few ajustable knobs and buttons.

By carefully manipulating the motor speed and the strobe speed you can turn one wave from a tangle of waves and narrow lines, to a spiraling and morphing snail-shell shape. Make the lights stay on to produce a psychedelic bubble and choose from sixteen different shifting color patterns. When you learn to tweak it just right, you can make the wave stay almost completely still, then make it spin back and forth, stopping, etc just by slightly turning the strobe knob.

The shapes you create can be smooth and stable, or can be wild and chaotic! The instructions emphasize at least twice that "There is not wrong way to play with a Stringin' It"

I HIGHLY suggest that all of you go out and get one of these, they are the fucking coolest!

Also, the white-unperferated has recently come into town and in a week I will meet Cid for the fist time!

Good luck with your first encounter with Lucy. Those wave machines are great. I used to play with one during physics lab all the time. I love to match the frequency of the strobe light with the frequency of the wave so that it looks like it's standing still. Then you can tweak it slightly so the wave moves slowly forward or backward. The only advice I can give you is to put it away at some point during your trip. You can easily get lost playing with random toys for about 5 hours during an acid trip, and there are a lot better things to do for those 5 hours.

Have fun, Be safe,
DHarp

I don't plan on wasting my whole trip with this thing, just a good chunk of the peak! LOL!

I've never seen anything like this before. It would make sense that it was based around a wave machine for physics classes. I bet some psychonaut was in class one day when the professor whipped one of these bad boys out and thought "man! If you made the lights strobe in different colors..."

yeah, that's almost exactly the same thing that I have except the string is white and their are LOTS of light combinations. Plus mine can make holographic 3-D shapes.... way cooler...
