Gadget

I came home after a long day (there will be several of those coming up – I’m such a whiner) to find a little battery-operated fan by my keyboard. Yay! I love fans! Fans, and clocks, and lamps. *sigh* There was a time in my life when I was buying so many clocks, lamps and fans that it was almost time for an intervention. (I was going to include flashlights in that list, but they’re really just tiny, portable lamps, aren’t they?)

Anyway – tiny fan is magic!

COOOOOOOOL!!! It cycles through many variations on remotes.com– a website where you can buy replacement remotes. Lloyd got it at school and brought it home for me. He knows me well.

    It should say, “I’m so cool.”

    Ha! That’s cool! Can you see the words from the other side? If you were blowing the fan on a friend it would say “MOC.SETOMER”, which sounds like some sort of patching compound: “There’s a hole in my wall. I tried to repair it with moc setomer.”

      Unfortunately, the lights are only one one side. What I want to know is if the “brains” is in the handle, and if so how the date gets to the blades while they are spinning. Or maybe all of the electronics are in the little plastic in the center of the fan blades?

    That is awesome AND super cool!! Can you figure out how it works? Can you play with it & make it say other stuff? I’m so excited for you!

    I’m gonna spin my spoons & see if any magic happens!
