When I was young (before electricity), I used to call them "touchers" and I was fascinated by them! Don't know WHERE I got that name from!?!? Another name some people use is Rainbirds, but that is a brand but they started making them years ago.

We can learn lessons from it? Like "When things go in the wrong direction, they need a short impact with an armature?"

Hey dude, I absolutely love your videos. They’re packed with well-organized, well-presented info. You’re entertaining in a way that’s natural, not contrived or irritating like other channels’ hosts. And I noticed you like Andreas Vollenweider lol, that might be the best part. You should do a video on your album collection!

The weirdness of which you speak is a temporal compression artefact. The motion of the water goes against the motion of the camera so the encoder doesn't know how to deal with it and opts to preserve finer details rather than the blurry background.

Clever indeed. I've never looked at one up close, and always assumed there was a motor and a bit of electronics involved in producing that complex movement.

I would like to see a video on the mechanics of how car keys (traditional) and house keys actually work. It is ancient technology that still works. It could actually be paired with a video about how safes work as well -- or, heck, even non-digital clocks. Maybe you could also talk about how the starter on a car works to start the engine once the key is engaged. By the way, I am with you on your affinity for EPCOT Center and everything it represented. Monorails, PeopleMovers, and audio-animatronics, O my!

Since you like technology involving water, a video covering ram pumps and boost converters would be a nice two for one since their operating principles can be analogized.

This has been driving me nuts, what is the music that you play for the credits/at the end of the video? I have tried to Shazam it, but it doesn't pickup the correct song. I love the song and I want to listen to it more.

As a kid I saw one of these sprinklers albeit a much larger version spraying a farmer's field. I went over to it to look at it and the "armature" or whatever swung back after it reached a particular degree of turn and smacked me in the head hard. I never went near one since.

Great video, but you missed one last feature. Those wire clips on the bottom serve a useful function. You can rotate them on the main shaft and change how much the sprinkler is allowed to rotate. By moving thing around the shaft with the control switch down, you can change the angle of rotational travel from just a few degrees to almost a full circle. You can also change what direction it is spraying in that way as well. This allows for more control of what you want to water.

so one weird thing i noticed is that with the CC on the video at the part where it shows the text about the word armature being used improperly that the CC shows up "can you believe i didn't put a ton of Jokes in this Bit?" but you never said that, do you type in the CC manually just wondering because i thought it was generated?

Thank you for taking the time to caption your videos for those of us with hearing issues, it makes the content way more accessible. With youtube's removal of community captioning, without creators like you who take the time to do this, the autogenerated captions we're left with are generally... well, not good.
