A couple of photos of me in my interpretation of The Rotor Chair from the novel The Strange Affair of Spring Heeled Jack by Mark Hodder. It waqs built for a Steamunk event we put on at the Black Country Living Museum.

That's great. But I think the stove had to be integrated with the chair. This would add comfort, while walking down the ice of Mont Blanc. By the way, is it still shared?

Sorry for the errors, rudeness and stupidity. It's not me, this online translator. Really convenient?

Just love that chair!
Interesting contraption altogether, but a bit draughty for outdoor activity, especially in the wintertime. Nice outfits, too, Mr Cooper

It was assembled in the dining room more than once.

Given our present weather (some parts of the UK are now as hot as Texas), I'd suggest making the rotor functional with an electric fan motor. It'd be grand to watch the TV on the living room with the gentle caress of a fan generated breeze!

I would totally buy one if it can hold a steampowered gatling gun firing marshmallows or something!

You'd need a large room, it's 9 x 3 feet,  7ft high and the Rotor blades span 6ft.

I think attaching flares (multi-colored, of course) is a capital idea! Whatever it takes to deter the paparazzi!

I'd prefer guns. That'll teach them.
