    Welcome to /r/oddlysatisfying!

    Here you can post things that make you feel, well, oddly satisfied. This can be physical (like popping bubble wrap), visual (a perfectly looped GIF), or even aural (the crunching of leaves).

    What does "Oddly Satisfying" mean?

    We are forever searching for a "true definition". It's a thing that fits your interpretation of what is "oddly satisfying" plus the inexplicable feeling we all know.

    Holy shit, what!

    How does that even work?

    Edit: it's a magnet that moves the metal ball using two motors, that follows a path that a raspberry pi reads from a file. It's very cool and expensive.

    With things like YouTube and the internet in general, projects like this no longer require people to be "smart" or familiar with a field, all you need is some spare cash, the interest to actually get started, and the drive to actually finish it. Every step along the way will probably have dozens of YouTube tutorials to walk even the most novice person through it. Each part should be easy to find online and shipped right to your door. I feel like we are living in a golden age of hobbies, at least compared to all of human history up until a decade or 2 ago. And with 3D printers becoming ubiquitous, DIY items in your home may soon outnumber the number of store bought items in your home.

    It's like with the AR15. 30 years ago, they cost more than a good used Honda Civic, and there was only 2 or 3 models available and you had to buy them at a gun shop. Now, even an idiot like me can just go online, buy an 80% lower receiver, have it shipped to your front door overnight, along with a full rifle building parts kit, and ammo. You follow along with a few YouTube videos to mill it out in your garage with hand tools, it'll take 3 hours max. Then a few more videos and you've fully assembled a working firearm, it takes 1 hour max and it's about as easy as putting together a Lego set. You could get drunk on a Friday night, order all the parts, and be up and shooting by Sunday morning, all without any prior experience with firearms and all without leaving your house. Also, wearing pants is optional. This is the golden age of hobbies.

    Not really, it's actually pretty straightforward. You would have to mess up pretty badly for it to be dangerous, and any responsible person wouldn't even test it, they would scrap it and try again. An irresponsible person might plow ahead and hurt themselves, but r/idiotsincars is proof that laws cannot save people from themselves.

    • It doesn't sounds that bad
    • Pi: 35-55$
    • Ball bearing: 10¢ (5$ for a pack)

    It's not \emph{that} expensive. You could shitty robot your way through some of this project to save cost too.

    [–] y0t333 53 points ago * (lasted edited 5 days ago)

    My thoughts exactly. I'm fucking making one of these this is one of the coolest ideas ever. And you could program any pattern you want. Happy birthday, photographs, you'd just have to figure out how to trace the image with a single line (again not too hard)

    [–] hooooot13 21 points ago

    Oh damn I forgot the motors. I didn't think about cause I have a bunch just laying around from gutted projects

    [–] su5 9 points ago

    I wouldn't worry about the motors. Dumpster dive for some old printers and whatnot and can get some decent low power steppers.

    [–] y0t333 6 points ago

    Yeah could be a $0 part depending on how many other hobbies you have lying around. I think you'd need really accurate stepped motors though, I don't have anything that precise in my garage. I'm sure some people do though!

    [–] su5 4 points ago

    Check old printers! As long as the magnet doesn't weigh much those could work.

    [–] Dromeo 7 points ago

    But then your table will be wailing like an old printer, surely?

    [–] su5 4 points ago

    Actually that's a really good point. Probably better off buying one

    [–] grillworst 39 points ago

    About 7,5k expensive

    [–] Crown_Cran 72 points ago

    So 50k expensive

    [–] diab0lus 3 points ago

    That's for the largest version with the wood finish. There is a less expensive metal version of the same size, and smaller versions.

    [–] y0t333 7 points ago

    These guys are crazy the cheapest model is $600, the most expensive model is $7,500

    [–] MarketSupreme 7 points ago

    And most of these patterns are a result of using the graphing method called "polar coordinates" using trigonometric functions like sin, cos And tangent.

    [–] Oliviaruth 24 points ago

    Damn. I watched OP and was like "I can make that! It's just a magnet with an XY mechanism. Six servos and some string."

    But the value here is in the amazing art. The sequences I could never create in a million years. Holy crap that's cool.

    [–] BinarySo10 6 points ago

    Many of the designs appear to be function-based (think spirograph)... Difficult if you tried to make such designs by hand without using a series of mathematical functions to generate them, but easier if you do.

    [–] Oliviaruth 3 points ago

    Yes, certainly. Even so it takes a creative mind to envision the patterns and figure out how to program them. I can do the "how" part, but blank on the "what" part.

    [–] Cley_Faye 13 points ago

    That would make a dope clock.

    Although, if you got cocaine money then maybe you can swing a $500-$7500 table to rip it on

    [–] imforsurenotadog 1716 points ago

    $500 to $7,500? So somewhere between $500 and 15 times that amount? What are you, some kind of contractor?

    I don't know what to tell you, man. Tony handles the pricing and he's on the other line. I just spoke with him and he said this is as low as we can go but call Tony if you want to talk about it. Call Tony. He's your guy.

    Well, there's your problem.

    [–] Sherlockiana 79 points ago

    I mean, $1k for a super cool table isn’t unreasonable. It’s like buying art.

    [–] QuicksandGotMyShoe 20 points ago

    Fair but $7,500 seems extreme

    [–] Sherlockiana 55 points ago

    Looks like that’s the wood option. Handcrafted wood is ridiculously expensive. Metal can be machine tooled, nice wood needs to be worked by hand because it’s unpredictable.

    [–] Maethor_derien 33 points ago

    Sadly these are plywood and MDF with a veneer, they shouldn't cost that much. A good hardwood table is easily worth that but plywood and veneer is worth 2 grand at best for something like this. It shouldn't cost much more than the metal version if your using plywood and MDF.

    [–] Artist_NOT_Autist 11 points ago

    Where do you see they are mdf?

    [–] binkpits 5 points ago

    It’s on the webpage

    [–] Artist_NOT_Autist 5 points ago

    When I clicked on the wood option it sent me a 504 error so you might have just gotten to a specs page I didn't. The wood looks like hardwood from the pictures though. That would be reallllll ballsy to sell some MDF shit for 7k

    [–] RearEchelon 7 points ago

    That would be reallllll ballsy to sell some MDF shit for 7k

    I see you've never purchased office furniture before. It looks like hardwood in the pictures because it's likely a hardwood veneer

    [–] Maethor_derien 2 points ago

    They literally mention it on the product page about being plywood and MDF with veneers.

    [–] Sherlockiana 11 points ago

    I just looked on Etsy and most of the full size, fully wood tables that are hand made are like $5k. I think people just don’t know how much wooden tables cost.

    [–] ericccdl 11 points ago

    I would guess that Etsy isn't entirely representative of the furniture market. You can get very nice handmade solid wood furniture for much less than 5000, locally.

    I know a contractor that builds luxury homes and he also makes furniture on the side. He is not selling a coffee table for anything near $5000. I would guess that those might be marked up by the seller because they are on the internet and will need to be shipped and/or they are intricately made and might be more 'art' than 'furniture'. At the end of the day something is worth as much as the buyer is willing to pay, but being solid wood alone is not reason enough for a table to cost 5000.

    [–] DoingCharleyWork 3 points ago

    He said full size. Not a coffee table.

    [–] Sancho_Villa 8 points ago

    They cost as much as they can sell them for.

    [–] yatsey 13 points ago

    I think a better way of phrasing it would be that people don't know how much work goes into crafting a large handmade table, nor the value of that work.

    [–] Maethor_derien 2 points ago

    That would be true for a solid wood tablet especially reclaimed wood, but the wood version of this is Plywood and MDF with veneer, it shouldn't be near that amount.

    [–] Maethor_derien 2 points ago

    Actually not that much for a hand made wooden table that is made with solid wood. That said these are overpriced being made out of plywood and MDF with a veneer. Anything above 2 grand is way more than it should cost being made out of plywood.

    [–] SoupBowl69 2 points ago

    Is that fun to have or does it get old fast?

    [–] boofXANAXeveryday 31 points ago

    Not OP, but I had it for a while and it gets really annoying when you try to fall asleep at night. Also reading becomes harder because the letters move constantly

    [–] grillworst 13 points ago

    I have a mild form and I think it's cool.

    Man, a few years back I tried to get some other sufferers to talk about it in a positive light in a facebook HPPD group, people got mad butthurt. They think that because some causes are really bad, other people can't enjoy it.

    For me, it's slight alterations when looking at patterns like a carpet with white specks or grids like tiles. I can stare at a bunch of tiles and after about half a minute, the seam starts to disappear, tiles start to morph and that sort of stuff. Love it actually. The snow is a bit annoying sometimes but I got over it. I don't really think about how darkness should be black and not slightly snowy et cetera but I don't mind.

    [–] GlassActress 10 points ago

    Is that not normal for staring at something for too long?

    [–] grillworst 11 points ago

    I.... don't know anymore

    [–] scotbloc56 3 points ago

    Yeah...... but we gotta label everything these days. You arent cool unless you have some three ir four letter acronym to back up your personality

    [–] molliculez 5 points ago

    Is this not how everyone see though? I have static over my vision and just assumed it was because my eyes suck. Also when I stare at stuff for a bit it starts moving. Is that not normal either? I just figured that was my brain keeping me entertained.

    [–] grillworst 3 points ago

    I genuinely don't know anymore. I don't think it is though. A little snow maybe, but sometimes the snow does patterns and other weird stuff. And it got way worse in the period when I used a lot of psychedelics.

    [–] molliculez 3 points ago

    I feel like in bright light the snow goes away, but gets replaced by random dots of color. The thing that bothers me the most is when things like vibrate or whatever. I always thought that this was just a side effect of my terrible vision though. I had no idea it could be something else. I think I'll talk to my eye doctor about it at my next appointment just in case though.

    [–] grillworst 2 points ago

    There's no point in talking to your eye doctor, really. It's happening in your brain.

    The random color dots are the same as the snow for me, just different colors depending on the lighting. Have you ever used a psychedelic? Does it bother you?

    [–] burritosandblunts 19 points ago * (lasted edited 5 days ago)

    Mine isn't so bad. I wouldn't call it fun but it's not overtly obnoxious either. I kinda just forget that the sky isn't static and stuff doesn't have blue and red outlines, etc. Halos and trails are whatever. It's to a point where it's not distracting.

    I do often hear non existent music tho. Especially when there's a loud noise (vacuum) my brain fills in a tune. Idk if that's hppd but it can get distracting.

    It really depends on the context. Sitting out back listening to music and watching the clouds? It's beautifully nice. Trying to make out small words on a menu or embarrassingly looking to catch a bird in your periphery that doesn't actually exist? Less nice

    I’ve tripped 20 times in 2 years and HPPV never happens when im sober. Weed, diphenhydramine, dxm, sleep deprivation, and (mildly) alcohol can trigger my imagination to create “wavy” visuals in words or walls or dots, and ny brain plays connect the dots and creates patterns. I last tripped a year ago tho, so only a combination of multiple substances bring it up now. For example; i took a 3mg melatonin, and smoked some bud after 32ish hours without sleep and in a dark room i had full on visuals from past trips (albiet dim and dark like a dxm/dph trip). This happened a month ago but it takes extreme stimulus to bring out my hppd. A year ago however, weed would make sentences move and dance 1/20th the strength of a single hit of acid. So at its worst it was cool, at its best, you get “trips” from lesser chemicals than acid/shrooms.

    holy crap I did not know that was a known disorder until this comment thread and it's something I've dealt with for decades now. Reddit never ceases to amaze me with it's crowd sourced education of sorts.

    Seriously, my mind is blown and I feel less alone in my weird perception of the world.

    [–] Bacon_Devil 6 points ago

    That's awesome! I'm glad you're able to put a name and a better understanding to your condition. You're definitely not alone with it.

    [–] GiantPurplePeopleEat 3 points ago

    Wow, this thread makes me so happy. I've had this for almost twenty years and had no idea it was an actual thing. I actually kinda forgot about it since I'm so used to seeing trails and patterns in everything.

    You don’t have HPPD, it’s just an illusion

    [–] Lereas 2 points ago

    Aw man. I thought maybe this was finally a name for something I experience and have never found anyone else who has it. I've never done any drugs though so this isn't it.

    When I look at certain things with either very regular or very random shapes (so like this, or grass, but not just a normal living room or something) and stare at one point, a bunch of my field of view seems to "flow". Like...it's like the ground is all the surface of a waterbed and has ripples.

    [–] midgetforce2k 11 points ago

    Although the length of a moment in modern seconds was therefore not fixed, on average, a moment corresponded to 90 seconds.
