Lavendel in German TV

Lavendel in German TV.

A little report about me and my steampunk. The TV station DRF-1 has accompanied me about 5 hours at my work and created an 8 minute film. Unfortunately only in German…….

Franzis-Ka

This object has been created for my wife because she wanted a radio for her desk in her workplace. A kit from a friend came to my advantage and was installed here. The Franzis Tuberadio Deluxe. It is equipped with a switchable tube, which gives this device the nostalgic sound of earlier times.

The Victorian Sound Tube

MP3 / radio player

The two retaining arms open at the push of a button. Thus, the sound tube can be removed and you can take it everywhere. When you place it on the holder again and press the switch again, the holding arms reengage and hold the player firmly on its base. With Sound to Light control.

Old Father

Another MP3 project. For the first time, I worked with steam and thus a real steam radio was created. Here a commercially available MP3 / radio player was scanned and installed as a basic base in this device. A steam generator from the model railway technology generates Steam if you wish. The name Old Father comes from parts that my old gentleman once created. He had a television tower made of copper in the seventies, which for a long time stood at home on the fireplace. I have used some parts of them here. I hope he has found his peace …….

IGRUN

The second Geissler tube, which I used in steampunk. Here, too, a Teslatrafo and a rotating brass cage were installed. The name IGRUN originated because of its functions. Translated into English and came out IGRUN.

I = Ignition / On Off

G = Geissler tube

R = Rotation

U = UV light

N = Neon light

These 5 functions can be switched on or off at the push of a button. The Uv light illuminates the uranium glass spiral. Uranium glass is UV active and shines in the dark when it is illuminated with ultraviolet rays.

Aetherias Secret

For months I worked on this device. It is a steampunk safe. To get to the inner secret, you have to solve some riddles. Clap in the hands turns on the main tension. Various switches allow the device to rotate 180 °, where other puzzles can be solved. This gives you a 4-digit code which you must enter on the front panel in the keypad. If the code is correct, this apparatus opens fully automatically and moves its innermost upwards. Pressing any key will close the safe again.

5 geared motors, neon plasma balls, Nixie Codeschloss, automatic secret drawer and some more were installed here. A TV Team has banned the full functioning of this device on film. When the broadcast of this contribution is, I can unfortunately not say yet but certainly will be a link to find here 😉

The Time Cup

Old, lying sound bars of a wall clock have brought me to this idea. The striking of the sound bars here solenoid electromagnets are controlled by Arduino. The device functions as a timer and counts the minutes after switching on. Every hour, the Westminster Sound will sound with hourly acoustics. If this device is switched on at 12 o’clock, it functions as a normal clock. When an hour has passed, it hits one, then two …. There are lots of instructions how the sound bars can be controlled by servo. With Solenoid not yet. Lavendel has invented it 😉
