Video | Story
The counter cube was created both for stress-release from
the pressure caused by the technologically-challenging
cubes, and as a simple yet interesting interaction between
people across time.
The counter itself was scavenged from an old
photocopier, and inherently had the feature of only
incrementing by 1 for every electric pulse (of 12V)
reaching it - with no effect of the pulse's length. So we
were almost there. What was required, however, was careful
disassembly for resetting the accumulated number (which at
that point referred to the number of pages copied by the
deceased machine). Thinking about it now - it could be fun
to build an automatic re-setter, which would increment
it's number to 000000 again (around 650,000 "presses").
Only other thing needed to complete the cube was a
push-button. Schematics are too simple to waste time on...
