This is a page is to document my more miscellaneous smaller projects that I use to keep myself busy
New Track (2015)
New Track is a portable cassette player converted into a toy tractor. Using magnetic tape as a track, the tractor can pull itself along at a top speed of 4.75cm/s. In April of 2020 it was put for auction on DoneDeal.ie in 2020 but received no offers.
During the Covid-19 Pandemic of 2020 New Track was used to tell the masses to 'Stay Indoors!'
