Parabolic Microphone

This is a user-focused parabolic microphone prototype for a museum project.

The interesting part of doing projects like this is trying to figure out how people are going to break it.

Hey, I built one of these for the Sinus Museum in 1981. Yes, How to make it unbreakable is a huge challenge! Try to think like a 12 year old boy who missed his ritalin dosage.

Goot Luck

Yah, it was probably the same drawings too. Although they were dated 1982. That was before they had computers and CAD in the shop. They used to make all their drawings with little graphite-filled wooden sticks. Just a step away from ink and quill.

Yeh, like I said, 1982. The drawings I worked from were on clay tablets, however. You must have the "as builts".
