I need sleep... But just time to post a photo of a new toy...

I plan to wire it up to a PEC so I can get a readout of daylight outside, or I could use it to write a graph of sound levels in the flat, or...
Yeah OK I don't know what to do with it yet, it just looked cool.

Does it have a name?

It's a Millivolt Recording Meter made by Cambridge Instruments... Millie for short.

Clockwork motor drives a roll of paper under a stylus, making a graph... Well that's what I presume as it hasn't arrived yet. Should have lots of fun calibrating it and printing rolls of graph-paper.

‘Millivolt’ seems to indicate a degree of sensitivity. Any chance it could be used as a lie detector?

I can see you in the future (or maybe it’s the past) receiving text messages on a teleprinter ;-)

Oh yes!... I like the idea of lie detector.

I want my texts to arrive on one ticker-tape.

OK... so not much use when I'm down the pub... but I still want one.
