Page 141: Lunch and Snails
Lunching with the nerd pack and their electric snails! In a world full of sudden unexpected landmarks, radio is a rather practical means of communication. I’ve actually worked out the basic functioning of Fursovich’s kit, though we don’t see it here. Everything is easily cobbled together with homemade parts, the only fantastical bit is the use of electric snails (there had to be SOMETHING weird, or it wouldn’t be me. Besides, most homemade battery techniques looked pretty clunky.) And even THAT’S based on a real thing – yes, someone has indeed made a snail battery!
Electric snails, common enough in the Randomain if you know where to look, come in various sizes of varying wattage… The bigger they are, the more voltage they have. The more coils in the shell, the more amps they have. You can see more detailed electric snail sketches here!
Errrmmm… Looks like the next update will be next week around the same time.
