They look like some kind of spark-gap to me.  So:

"It's OK, I've shorted it out, you can come down from the roof now...."

I love it when I go back to England -- if you're driving around on a Sunday you can see folks playing in the parks -- the crack of the ball on the bat is very relaxing to me...

@Max: you should visit the Silicon Valley one of these days, on a typical weekend, there are multiple teams playing Cricket and there are regular tournaments which sees fierce competition. The same goes for NYC and Chicago...

How about: "Isn't it always this way? You take something to bits, put it back together, and there's always at least one part left over..."

There was a short-lived attempt to bring cricket to the USA in the 1950s.  Because the game and its subtleties are utterly baffling to the USA public, they tried to liven it up by adding static electric generators to the wickets.  They also made them much larger so USA bowlers wouldn't have to be as accurate.

The attempt failed.  The manufacturer of the electric wickets tried to sell them to 43-man Squamish teams, but that sport was already way too complex.

How am I going to get this last piece up there...  If only someone would invent the ladder...

@Brian: Re: But then again I could be wrong.

Wow! That sure sounds good.  If it isn't right, then it should be!  :-)

@Brian at Impulse: I recall this was first considered germaine in the mid '60s as an alternate source of energy production.

That sounds like a load of ... spheres ... to me :-)

Max re-discovered a bi-metallic energy source instrument

Hey Max, you appear to have discovered a lost instrumentation device for measuring the electrical fields generated by varying the proximity of bi-metallic spheres. I recall this was first considered germaine in the mid '60s as an alternate source of energy production. Research was funded by the then Soviet Union. But then again I could be wrong.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
