I have a new project that I am working on, which I may or may not one day unveil to you. Between that, though, and my new, regular, boring job, it’s likely that my posting will be sporadic for a little while. I am also considering some things regarding the future of Threat Quality Press, and of blogging, and what the next stage for the site is.
In the meantime, here’s a question that I have:
Could you build a boomerang that had a pair of electric, powered gyroscopes in it, and use the angular momentum of their spinning to create an adjustable weight imbalance that would allow you to “steer” the boomerang after you threw it?
I suppose it’s probably going pretty fast to be able to steer it. And this might affect the boomerang’s regular rotation, interfering with its lift. Could you build a larger gyroscope in it — a kind of center of mass that cased the wings to spin around it faster, thus keeping it in the air for longer?
These are all important questions. Who knows about aerodynamics?
