Ground Control To Space Station x10 App

Ground Control To Space Station X10

Take your protein pills and put your helmet on!

Experience the thrill of controlling the International Space Station (ISS) from your handheld. Anywhere, anytime. Ground Control To Space Station X10 is an open source X10 app enabling you to control the lights, the in-wall speakers and even the full electrical system onboard the ISS.

It’s 2009 baby, and in-orbit cameras and microphones are rigged-up throughout the work and living quarters so you can watch as you let your impish impulses take over the coffee grinder or random power tools 350 kilometers away. All communications are on a nearly-live stream (only an eleven-second delay). The longer you stay online, the more control you’re given. Initially you can only dim lights. As you outlast competition and demonstrate mastery of each level’s play, you eventually gain access to the Space Station’s guidance and navigation systems. Safe for children 12 and up.

Turbo Encabulator App

Turbo-Encabulator

For a number of years now, work has been proceeding to bring perfection to the crudely conceived idea of a machine that would not only supply inverse reactive current for use in unilateral phase detractors, but would also be capable of automatically synchronizing cardinal grammeters. Such a machine is the “Turbo-Encabulator App.” Basically, the only new principle involved (since the Retro-Encabulator App of yesterday) is that instead of power being generated by the relative motion of conductors and fluxes, it is produced by the medial interaction of magneto-reluctance and capacitive directance. Special shout out to J. H. Quick for technical guidance.

Retro Encabulator App

Retro-Encabulator App

The first-in-class encabulator app for the iPhone.

Newly introduced by open source engineering teams the world over, the Retro-Encabulator iPhone App does previous encabulators one better. Early attempts to construct a sufficiently robust spiral decommutator failed largely because of a lack of appreciation of the quasi-piestic stresses. While this sounds simple, the failure rate in regulating heat expansion nears 22% which is higher than any previous app-based encabulator.

Purwell reitmal scanners native to the platform take time to develop, and, as anyone who’s built a new app knows, time equals money. Electrical engineers will appreciate the difficulty of tracking the operating point which is generally maintained as near as possible to the h.f. rem peak. Troubleshooting the retrospoilage takes a delicate balance model which isn’t impossible for the average iPhone user to manage without aid.

This is a distinct advance on the standard in that no dramcock is required after the phase detractors have been remissed.
