I may have mentioned that patience does not come easily to me.
It’s a particular problem when dealing with people who have a loose grasp on the concept of urgency..or when I want some tea.
Today’s invention is a technology to speed up tea making (who can afford the time required by natural circulation, when active dunking would be faster?)
Here, I employ my love of thermodynamics by applying a Stirling engine in a novel and strangely satisfying way.
The (jasmine) tea bag string is applied to the engine’s crank so that the bag is oscillated through the hot water, hastening teatime.
