Nevertheless, it has been worth the expense. Now, the heart drives the limbs without difficulty, even with as little as one and one-half voltaic units of electrical Fluid. The final arm turns with enough force that I must give some thought to the possibility that the Device may injure the fitment it is destined to drive. My landlord has been a reasonable soul, and I do not wish to annoy him.
Next, I shall attempt to connect the brain to the body. A difficult matter, as the currents of the mind cannot directly excite the gross matter of the body. I have, again, been to some expense to purchase an H-Bridge. Its principles are simple enough, and although I desired to build such an assembly from more basic components (the better to understand them), the cemetery had been picked clean of the necessary.
If I can succeed in commanding the brain to move the limb forward and back, then I shall have made good progress.
The headaches continue unabated, but I grow accustomed to them. The spots in my vision are no more than a nuisance.
