    So the next question is how long would that battery normally last before it runs out and at which point do we scratch our heads and try to work out why its still running.

    Well at least they are not attempting to cover up the wiring, I know!, I know!, it's measurement equipment.

    That was my thought, the platform must weigh some for sure, last time I saw perspex that thick it was used in a massive aquarium, and certainly easy for hair thin wires to be concealed in.

    But really, this is all academic, or not since it is only a spinny thing with no scientific backup.

    If it's a 3:1 ratio why are they just recharging a battery?

    Is it just my bandwidth, or is that a really crappy video stream?

    Of course it could just be a loop of videotape.
