About this blog

In this blog I will describe experiments with devices that provide psychokinetic manifestation of spirit voices with mainly electromechanical means.

My designs are based on the question, what devices could Thomas Edison have made with the technology available at that time.

VISPRE Unit-3 (more steampunk)

Ongoing work of another VISPRE Unit only made with electromechanical components. It is more a study instead of a real working ITC device. I could find out that it is possible to generate speech rhythms without electronics getting involved which was a very interesting insight for me.   VISPRE Unit- 3.mp4

Cardboard tube working as variable resonator

A nice expewriment from today was an idea coming from discussions with Jeff about applying cardboard tubes as bandpass resonators for human speech. It was a very simple setup. I took a piece of cardboard tube, put in a buzzer into one end (working on a steady frequency), covered this end with one hand and with the other hand I opened and closed the upper end of the tube in a random manner. Basically the results are promising ic combined with random excitation of the buzzer. Unbenannt

Buzzer EVP

I did another interesting experiment today. I used my Spica chaos electronic circuit and attached an electric buzzer to it. A buzzer mainly behaves like the oscillating relay in my VISPRE device. By tuning the chaos pattern and the current through the buzzer I could make it emitt snaring sounds with speech rhythms. VID_20211127_180322.mp4 I could record and export some fairly good voices.

Rotating steel ball and diaphragm

Today I finished a prototype where I incorporated all the findings and conclusions I gained from my previous experiments. VID_20211120_170126.mp4   A steel ball is mounted to the rotating shaft of a gear motor. The motor is controlled by the SPICA circuit. The ball is pressed against the diaphragm on a tube. The tube is closed and a microphone picks up the signal from the inside of the tube. The signal is post processed online with the lingua device. I also implemented a h

The power of diaphragms

In summer 2021 I started ITC experiments with devices that incorporated rather electromechanical principles instead of electronics. There still was some electronic in use but mainly I transferred the mechanical vibrations of an oscillating relay via a mechanical spring to a diaphragm in a cardboard tube. I called this design the VISPRE The results were pretty good. As ot turned out the whole system acted like the emulation of a human larynx and pharynx. I decided to extend my expe
