TheGeekGroup Quarter Shrinking Machine

You may have seen shrunk coins before but you may not have seen the technology that goes behind making them. Thanks to Aud1073cH for sending in the video above that The Geek Group made showing how they make the coins that they sell as a fund raiser item. If you are interested in purchasing other coins such as the Canadian Toonie (pictured below) have a look at this site here.

“After many months of designing, engineering, prototype-building and planning, we are finally shrinking quarters with Project Stomper! The quarters are shrunk with impressive power behind them: 6,000 volts and 100,000 amperes. After the process- which happens in less than 1/100th of a second – the quarters are now about the width of a dime, although significantly thicker.”

    They were trying to sell these things on ThinkGeek for like $30. LOL! They’re not the only ones that do this. Other do it for much less! These hacks should be called “the nerd group”. They’re giving geeks a bad name.

    There is great power behind this technique, both electrical force and the power of human ingenuity, so to speak. But it does make me wonder every time I read about these shrunk coins: what USEFUL purpose can it serve? I mean, what else can you shrink or otherwise work on with the same equipment that may be used in some way other than making an unusual gift (from a perfectly good coin)?
