What my father and I built on Rosh HaShana

   Posted by: Alon   in Blog

Here’s a teaser for you: The pictures below show a part of a contraption my brilliant engineer father and I built during Rosh-HaShana long weekend. It DOES have to do with this project. Could you guess what it does and how it is used? More details to come soon… 🙂




Feel free to write your guesses in the comments 🙂

UPDATE: It’s not enough to say what it is, you also need to say how it’s used.. 🙂

UPDATE #2 (Sep. 22, 6pm Jerusalem time): I guess it wasn’t such a big mystery to you guys.. yes, it is a part of an automatic prayer spooler. It is meant to be put on a sewing machine instead of the regular roll of string, and should roll any piece of paper it has in it. It’s just a prototype and we still have a lot more to do, but you have to admit it’s pretty cool  🙂 I’ll take a video of it in action and will upload it to youtube.

Congrats to Mandi, for being the quickest person to say what it is. Kelly from Ohio gave the most complete answer and also deserves praise. Mark Ferneau, Adam Hanin, QuarkSpin, Fr. Allen Peyton, Anderson Rodrigues, Kelley and Effie Suggs – You are all right!  Each of you is rewarded one cookie; Mandy and Kelly get two.
