Since 1946, indecisive people have been relying on Abe Bookman’s Magic 8-Ball to help guide their most critical life decisions, but this toy has been unable to answer one question: how will people die.So Stuart Gorman created Tragedy 8 ball in contrast Reveal a person’s morbid death.
Although claimed in the name of the product, Magic 8-Ball has no real magic. Open one and pour out the dark blue alcohol solution. Inside you will find an icosahedral mold covered with pre-printed answers. When the mold floats to the window opening of the inverted ball, these answers appear randomly.like DJ Harrigan’s custom magic GIF ball, Gorman created their custom 8 ball from scratch, starting with a 3D printed oversized billiard ball, replacing the number 8 on the top with more appropriate and ominous skulls and crossbones.
The Gorman includes an Arduino Nano board, which is connected to a permanently fixed 1.6-inch LCD screen, a lithium-ion battery and three mercury-filled tilt switches. It only supplies power to the electronic device when the Tragic Fate Ball is turned upside down. This method not only prolongs the battery life of the ball, but also ensures that the screen will only light up and display fate when the ball is upside down, just like it really is.
Can a tragic fate ball really predict how a person will die? Let us hope that the currently installed CODs that appear randomly include fate such as “Whale”, “Scissors Run”, “Frozen Carrot Knife” and “Swallow Rubik’s Cube”, which all sound particularly bad. We appreciate the effort here, but a simple warning warning will appear on the screen, such as “Ignorance is bliss, are you sure you want to know?” It may be a popular feature request.
