The good thing of studying at the University of Technology is the ability to apply my gained skills and knowledge to useless projects. As you might remember from my summer list, I wanted to try to make a soap bubble machine this summer. I have been attempting this before, without ever accomplishing a finished machine. Each time I will get somewhere (I once made a switch to turn on and off the motor by clapping my hands) and then something else will not be working (it only worked on a very specific voltage, so when I switched to batteries the circuit became useless). I give up and a few months later I try again. The idea is to have one motor slowly turning and making the bubble-stick-thingy go trough the soap, while a fan (I got it by demolishing a USB fan) will blow the bubbles. I confess, I can be a bit of a geek.

So, this time I used a motor from an old broken record player (the last motor I used turned too fast). To cut the story short: it didn’t work. The fan is probably not strong enough… Boohoo.
Then I remembered, there is nothing better to lift your mood than play outside and blow bubbles, the old fashioned way that is.
Check out what a super advanced human-soap-bubble-machine I am. They do not make them more complex than that. Ha! Who needs technology anyway.

If I ever try again, I will tell.

    It’s so cool that you tried to make your own machine! I wouldn’t even think of trying ahha. Great job with the giant bubble in the last picture!

    Thanks. I might try to make something different next time ;)
