Oh you didn’t upset me it’s just one of life’s things not being able to play in the snow ,my girlfriend has been threatening similar , as for artistic flair if you see something you want to make just have a go you never know even if it’s just a coffee table for yourself as long as you and your wife like it it’s all good don’t get too cold on the quad

Hi Lazarus , I am always so careful when doing the lichtenburg fractles coz as you said people have dyed messing around with it , have you seen the vid on YouTube where they do it to a piece of glass , it’s awesome they bombed the glass with negative ions first , but you need a science facility to do that which is a shame cupboard doors like it would take a kitchen to another level . Those things of yours are cool as .

Cheers Mark

Cant take the credit for those, I admit to chickening out in the end and not setting my own up. I did buy a neon transformer to use but it wouldn't take an open circuit so no good, then I saw the posts of doom and decided against. very Very cool though....

Hey Mark. Delighted to hear that you've found a way forward with the iwalk. They take a small amount of tuning to suit yourself, but follow the really good instructions or videos and you won't go wrong. You'll need to adjust regularly for different shoe heights. Definitely start off on flat level floors. Don't look down just step forwards and it comes naturally.
When you do go out if its over rough surfaces shorten the leg by at least one position as you don't have a knee and ankle to compensate for varying angles and heights.
I've stumbled only a couple of times but never felt I was going to fall.
If you need help drop me a pm and we'll link up.
Enjoy the freedom.
Shaun
