  • Wouldn't need to reflect from water, could put a buoy (float) in the column. Or, I imagine one could implement a lightweight shaft from the float to a (larger) target plate on top of the column.

  • er, 200 cm. Not enough coffee!

  • Exactly what was on my mind! Thinking about using the device to make a very inexpensive digital rain gauge!!!

    What is the potential precision over say, a 20 cm range? Of course, one could make a water amplifier (large plate to collect water at 10x area) - and spread it out to 120 cm or something like that, which would refine the device quite a lot. Seems like a project!

No public wish lists :(
