    Electromagnetic levitation (or suspension from both ends). Pretty cool little toy. The geek in me really likes this one... I don't know if there's enough power generation for time travel, though.

    I was watching videos on the eddy effect. Where you drop a magnet down a copper tube and it drops slowly, even though copper is basically not magnetic at all.

    LOL, Scott chord is a musical term, cord describes rope, or electrical wiring to a device...

    i think i might have figured it out

    the paper work , it says the red led on the back comes on when your ready to let go of the tardis.
    there is a white LED on the back for a low battery indicator.

    under a mangefying glass i see inside this white colored led,, beause i saw too many wires going to it making it suspect.

    i think the white led is dual purpose, it lights up when the battery is low. the system operates at 9vdc but this particular LED prob comes on when the voltage is like lets say 6v. inside the LED i can see more stuff in there other than a lighting element. i think i see what might be a photo sensor.

    althought he paperwork does not say so, apparently this white LED is dual purpose in that when the lights are off, apparently you are not "using" the toy so it shuts down.

    its my only explaination so far.

    its a good thing spelling isnt graded here.

    Just remember which is which when you write up your next proposal, the customer may think you're installing a electronic organ... No doubt at several Kw capability, it'd be a BIG organ...

    chord,, yeah this is a problem that goes back to my days in avionics. wrote it, typed it, said it so many times it erased any evidence of the word cord.

    But yeah, i do tend to get my wives mixed up since im married to a gemini.

    Ya know, with a specially cut chord of wood, you could have Christmas music playin' out of that new stove...
