Would you care to take up the challenge? Remembering that I was only 10 at the time, and keeping in mind the limitations in technology available to me, do you have any ideas as to how I could have arranged things so this system could be set up from outside the room?


You could have set it up and climbed out the window

@Max The Magnificent: Did you ever think about asking your brother to go into your room to set things up ... then simply leave him in there and go out to play with the other kids? LOL


Funny you should mention that, because he told me to set it up to show to one of his friends once, and left me there as a joke. Kinda' gets even for all the times he had to set it up.

@Max The Magnificent: You do realize that since your brother had to be in the room anyway, you could have replaced the entire system with him LOL


Yea, but I would have had to have been even more clever, to convince the audience how difficult it was to get him to do it (not in the intelligence of the designer).

Hi Ivan -- I have to say that I am very impressed with this project -- I think it was mega-advanced for a 10-year old -- I'm wondering if any other readers can match this little beauty?
