I bought one of those "eggs" that you dig into to find a hidden secret and I wondered if it would dissolve in vinegar so I decided to set up my Evo DX action camera to film it using the camera's own timelapse facility. The total time period for this session was 7 days. I started at 10 second intervals but that was really a total waste of time with not enough action so after leaving it overnight I changed the interval to 60 seconds and soon realised that was stiil too fast. The end result was well over 10000 images. From the 10 second interval session I selected every 100th frame and from the 60 second interval session I selected every 10th frame so the end result is a bearable 2 minutes. The next issue was ALL the action took place on the opposite side of the egg but I left it that way round as I didn't want anybody to think I gave it a helping hand.

Grandad's Postbag 190216 Pop Pop boat shortened. I will put a longer video on my other channel for those who like to spend more time watching boats.

I am not endorsing these products and I get no income from the sellers so I suggest you do your own search and find the product that suits your purposes.

eBay
Recycled Put Put Steam Boat Pop Pop Candle Engine Powered Working Tin Toy
Cost me £3.37

Some history on Pop Pop boats you look at this Wikipedia link on the subject http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pop_pop_boat they have been around since at least 1891 when a patent was filed by a Frenchman named Thomas Piot.

HOW DOES IT WORK?
Water in the boiler is turned to steam. The steam has a greater volume than the water so it pushes out of the boiler and down the tube. In the tube it cools, condenses and contracts so it is drawn back into the boiler and the process repeats. The action of the steam pushing into the tube pushes the existing water in the tube out the back and that drives the boat forwards. The steam condensing and contracting draws water back into the tube ready for the next push.
If your next question is "why doesn't the boat oscillate backwards and forwards due to this push-pull effect?" try blowing a candle out and then try sucking a candle out and you will see the blow is fairly directional but the suck is not.
