Well done! That was a really nice touch having the mask cut in a postage stamp - that really gives you a perspective on how small it is.


Edit: Has anyone contacted The Guinness Book of Records yet? ;-)
Perfecting an NBTV system is like trying to slam a revolving door...

Nice to see you there on the monitor so thats Albert !
The electromagnetic spectrum has no theoretical limit at either end. If all the mass/energy in the Universe is considered a 'limit', then that would be the only real theoretical limit to the maximum frequency attainable.

Well come on Harry, there's the next challenge for you, a wrist watch NBTV. :shock:

All the circuits could be in a thick wrist strap and the dial would rotate at 750RPM.

It's name? .......... The Wristkow ? Mmmm.

Just received this morning this reply from Guiness Book of Records rejecting my application. Here are the two pertinent paragraphs...............

"While we certainly do not underestimate your proposal, we do however think that this item is a little too specialised for a body of reference as general as ours. We receive many thousands of record claims every year and we think you will appreciate that we are bound to favour those which reflect the greatest interest."

"As your record application has not been accepted, Guinness World Records is in no way associated with the activity relating to your record proposal and we in no way endorse this activity. If you choose to proceed with this activity then this is will be of your own volition and at your own risk. "

Looks like NBTV is a risky venture! :wink:
