7458Re: [probe_control] Diamonds as stepping stones
- Jul 1, 2011Perhaps the previous version of the scanner was about the size of the average wrist watch of the time? Say still about "one-third of an inch thick" as described in the PROBE script, but just larger in diameter. Back in the early 1970s wrist watches could be anywhere from about 1 to 1.5 inches in diameter (going by the average men's watches; women's watches were smaller).
Cameron said the scanner was made smaller, but he didn't specify how much smaller. Mike, one of our esteemed members, has been making some fabulous, exacting replica scanners for a while. If he would be willing to provide the diameter of his replica, maybe we could guess at how much larger the previous version may have been, again using a wrist watch as a reference.

You’ll have to forgive me for going into analytical mode but has anyone ever
wonder on Cameron’s comments that the TV scanner used to be larger. I wonder
what the earlier size was?? It couldn’t have been too large or it would have
been too obvious.
