Twilight Vs Technology #6 by Sintakhra Twilight Vs Technology #6 by Sintakhra
The Anemometer, a marvellous device designed to calculate wingpower in pegasi.
But such devices are hard to come by, and very expensive. Despite our lovely unicorn's
connections, she is forced into trying to recreate the device from theory (and mail-order
components)

Will our favourite lavender pony manage to find the error which has been irking her
inventiveness in time for the tornado? Only time will tell (spoiler, she gives up in the end and
spends her life savings on an import from Canterbury)

Hope you enjoy the comic, I spend an ungodly amount of time raging on the backgrounds.
And look! backgroundception! A background inside a background (last panel)

p.s. Despite all attempts, she always looks like a filly! Curse you filly-twi!

I think Morvo would have something to say about this, Morvo?

"WINDMILLS ..."

Actually this thing is apparently an anemometer, but the same principal applies.

"ANEMOMETERS DO NOT WORK THAT WAY!"

Thank you Morvo.

I think you made Twilight look a bit like a filly when she is sitting down in all but the last panel, just a suggestion you should make her midsection a bit taller.

Blowing is an inaccurate way to measure a piece of equipment designed for wingpower *pokes* ^^. Besides, have you tried blowing on something that big enough to spread the force over all four blades? XD

Considering lovely Twi proved she can make a fairly strong breeze in "Boast Busters" (when she made the music which put the Ursa Minor to sleep), I imagine she's quite capable of conjuring a far more minor breeze, enough so that she can maintain it without direct focusing :P

But I'm just theorising ^^

>But such devices are hard to come by, and very expensive.
-Huh... I wouldn't think so ?
Considering the large population of pegasi (and other flying races, like the gryphons), such a thing must be a rather common thing for them. Maybe it's mostly available in flying towns, and cities near them, but still not a ''rare/uncommon'' and very costly thing.

And, in case people forgot... they have stuff that are more(or equally) technological than that, that exist already ; namely, the DJ station, speakers and microphones, plastics, etc...
