The Time Machine
'The Time Machine', is the most dangerous of scraps i've ever created, but the intricacies can be examined later. The front cover features a dismantled watch that not only acts as the latch for the book, but in turn holds a small brass pin. The pin resides behind the watch's faceplate which acts as a secret compartment, held by velcro. But where exactly is the pin to be used? And for what?
Inside the front cover displays an assortment of wires and electronic parts. You'll find some of it interactive, such as the memory stick, some of the bendable wires, and the bubble in the center that also contains tiny watch parts. The back cover has more electronic parts, some movable, and includes a watch face (w/hands) of Mickey Mouse. The book also plays Mickey's theme song. Both Mickey memorabilia can easily be removed if desired....it just so happens that the theme song is actually needed for time travel, which is the only reason i included it.
'The Time Machine' is for that mechanic at heart who loves taking things apart, seeing how they work, and putting them back together so you get it to do what you want it to do:) Tinker away friend, but be careful....this book is a time machine after all.
If this description does not suit you well, perhaps try another themed journal.
