The Random Excuse Generator – firing on all three cylinders.

Henry Hoke’s Random Excuse Generator as it was rediscovered

Dr Chris Block and I recently completed a trial run of the reconstructed Random Excuse Generator – the little known masterwork of mechanical genius Henry Hoke.

It was a great occasion: achieving a sort of closure to many years of hard work by Dr Block (who is the Technical Director here at the Insitute) and I.

A film crew was present to record the final triumphant moments and it is viewable on Youtube at:

We are endeavouring to present the REG at a number of public events in the upcoming year.
