    Weird .. some of my images (via imgur.com) in PM with @Ray Aznable don't work for her either. But uploading the image as a file seems to be a good workaround. Try that, @EL797

    @trids I have re-uploaded the image as a file now. Try it again.

    It's actually working by vibration .. if you remove B, it still works when the plunger makes the platform vibrate ;)

    Thanks, that's working fine now. So to answer your question .. no, it doesn't work for me, and i doubt it works for @Ray Aznable. I don't know what mechanism she used, but I've suggested a different one to her.

    edit: i also dislike TOA, so i just used an autopilot here for the purposes of testing the mechanism. But it's the way the platform responds by vibrating when the falling object (B in this case) lands on it, that matters

    For the record, the long pole above in "In Death Hill" is not a requirement of the mechanism. It's only there in order to fit in with her intended decorations for the final level.
    The mechanism is very simple and it works perfectly well without all the poles. It's just a draggable platform balanced on two balls (which are positioned underneath the two metal pillars).

    @trids She told us the solution
    and
    so I thought that demo/level was winnable.

    I think she might have been getting confused with this one, which she thought wasn't working ..

    Here's a better minimalism of the "Death Hill" essentials.

    The balls just make it unstable so that it will move/vibrate easily when something falls on it. Two vertical pillars instead of the balls would probably be fine, reducing the instability a little, but with the benefit of reducing any risk of accidental triggering.
    Try it and see :)

    Actually, pillars are too high. Wedges work better..

    sensor and vibrating mech
    are not consistent upon their activation
    and even worse they stop working
    if you alter the QR code to rotate the view
    in mekostudio

    And even worse if you don't alter the QR code and simply rerun the same card some time later

    :rotf: .. and then after restarting my device, it's working again!
    I think i need some tea, tea always makes things better

    Ok, so if that particular static slider vibration mechanism is unreliable, then I've had no problems using it in these examples..
    [​IMG]
    Try dragging on the draggables in different directions to control the directions of the vibrations.
    Nothing weird here, just perfectly healthy static sliders vibrating happily.
    Plus a platform with no static sliders, in a joystick configuration :D

    but please dont spill tea to fresh ur phone :p

    after many trial and error
    @trids concluded that,
    there are two kind of Sensor works differently
    1. Wirelessly, or it may also called as "Proximity",
    @ArGee have given that name since 2017.
    2. Wired (not wireless), using the concept Conducting of Vibration through all metal parts,
    @trids conclude that in links below...
    example, the one invented by @Fendi Rahardian.

    Remote Controls:
    □ Wireless / Proximity :
    A. Original Story of Proximity Sensor
    (by @ArGee)
    B. Manipulating Rotation of Rotor
    (by @Jóh)
    C. Manipulating Rotation of Red Robot
    (by @Steven Maki)
    D. High Induction (magic tower)
    (by @vince )

    ■ Wired / Conduction :
    A. Vibration A : using zapper
    (by @Fendi Rahardian)
    B. Vibration B : pressing B
    (by @Ray Aznable)
    C. Vibration C : B fall from far height
    (by @trids)
    D. Vibration to shake Balls
    (by @trids)

    Conclusion of two different kind of sensor
    A. Conclusion 1...
    B. Conclusion 2...

    @Ray Aznable As your request, I made a video about two types of sensor:

    I see you made a video about sensors too, so I also posted it here:

    then B's head crush with edge of metal block.
    its brain will spread all around the white floor.
    thankgoodness there is no blood in mekorama.

    @Ray Aznable Yeah, zapping B is the easiest (and funniest :p) method to present in the video, as I don't need to do anything to make B trigger the sensor.
