The world's first electricity-to-water transformer ( PTEEM ) and the world's first water-to-wind transformer ( PTEVM ) were created to mark the opening of the Montréal Science Centre in May 2000.
The PTEEM is a hydroelectric generating station that just happens to work backwards. It makes water from electrical energy: a crazy idea that occurred to our inventor at the alarming sight of our thirsty planet. So, by automating various recycled objects, he created a machine that produces an endless flow of water - rather like his own endless flow of ideas.
And then he had the idea of collecting all the water gushing from the PTEEM and making a generating station to transform it into. wind! Too good to be true, you say? Take a look at the water-to-wind generating station, the PTEVM . This virtual wind machine not only entertains children but also drives a windmill! And produces electricity! And what is the electricity used for? Why, to make water! And what is the water used for? To make wind, of course, so as to turn the windmills of the imagination, and to conquer time and space by controlling this synthetic wind. The result is this invention employing "applied pataphysics," the space-time fresco with its digital windmill and octatronic clock with integrated vertical pendulum . Of course there is always the risk of strange digital dislocation phenomena, especially on Earthlit nights .
Watch out for water shocks!
