Dudes, dudettes and *nix users, welcome to the Gizmo Quiz!

I have the honnor of replacing korkus2000 this week.

This week, we will be very clear on the rules. We need 2 simple answers in the same message. Someone just providing the link or just providing one correct answer will not win.

Here are the questions :

A)Who is making it?
B)What is it?

And here [vif.com] is the Gizmo!

Good luck to all!

Do wonders for the web stats of anyone with a site about potato guns!

Try asking Dan Quale (think that was his name)

>>used part of some scientific experiments

It has something to do with scientific experiments, and some type of light is used. You are coming closer to half [vif.com] of the answer.

Is it a section of the new particle accelerator being built by CERN?

Or more specifically, part of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) they are building there?

>>Looks like loudspeakers and lightshow built together in one insane unit.

Nope!

>>How about the flash unit of a neutrino collector

Nope!

>>Is it a time machine / tardis built by Dr Who?

Nope!

>>Super-Kamiokande Detector built by KEK laboratory in Japan

Neither... sorry!

"TESLA"
A new large-scale facility is currently being planned and developed by an international collaboration at the Deutsches Elektronen-Synchrotron DESY in Hamburg, Germany. TESLA - the acronym stands for:

T era Electron Volt
E nergy
S uperconducting
L inear
A ccelerator

The Superconducting Electron-Positron Linear Collider is one part of it

YES!

i jsut came home, 10 mintes ago... and saw gizmo :)

btw, i searched for TESLA beforte..i jsut didnt find any appropriate pic so i though it is not tesla..after searching a lot for acceletrator etc and nothingcame.. i tried tesla again..and i found the page..dont know exactly how now..since i closed the windows!

yes..i almsot gave it away...i saw the exact pic, the name BUT WHO makes it was nowhere..after searching a lot of links on that page i relaized that i shoud jsut go with domain only and dleted other part...and then on MAIN page there it was somewhere...lol...

oh i know.. i seached for "tesla detector" an there was some simialr COLOR acelerator..my d+first search was for "tube colors"..nothing found..so on "tesla detector" you see it on first page..i saw other pic down there, not first.

macguru ,you probably have it from here
