Interesting piece of machinery .. Cool , reminds me those Electrical engineering 101 lectures that do analogy between 'Water' and 'Electricity'.

I wonder if Compaq have something todo with Bank Museum & Education Centre, Wellington, New Zealand, because if I'm not mistaken I saw their logo at 0.17 seconds. Roll Eyes

This is something that you dont see everyday it is a well made and well thought invention. But the question I have in mind is it feasible to be used in the homes or can have a practical usage. Anyway if this kind of technology will be improved it can be used my bitcoin miners as a source of energy to run their data centers to mine bitcoin and other altcoins without having the problem on power expenses.

Saw this in a different video a few years ago. I'm quite not familiar with economic concepts but it sure was fascinating. I guess that's the beauty of it, you get to see how the different parts interact with each other. There's something very different to the feel of it. Computers maybe able to make better and more complex models but nothing compares to a tangible example like this.

Unfortunately sir, it seems to be an old, simple machine for demonstrating economic concepts. Sure would have been awesome to have a cool-looking, water-powered, electricity-generating machine at home. Cheesy
