    Starting down the learning curve with a Plath bubble horizon
    From: Paul Saffo
    Date: 2010 Jul 13, 11:56 -0700

    After a verrrry long search, I managed to obtain a Plath bubble horizon (a late model, prob the last model they made -- see pic), and am just starting to learn my way around it's quirks. In particular, I plan to run some 1st person tests to see just how (in)accurate it really is, so would love to connect with anyone who has a particular interest in these gizmos and might be able to share their experiences.

    Incidentally, in the course of chasing one down, I have identified at least three distinct models made by Plath, and as part of my low-key bubble madness, hope to document the evolution of the gizmos. In case this is a distraction for the rest of the list, feel free to email me directly if you like.
