Tranquil T3 Competition Results!
April 11, 2004
Tranqui PCl announced two new near-silent machines, the "T2" and "T3" at CeBIT 2004. In the finest traditions of village fetes, we asked you to guess the weight of part of the custom tooling used to create the T3.
Over half of the 1314 entries guessed under 50Kg, and 1100 of you guessed under 200Kg, but the true weight was over 300Kg. James Martin slightly over-estimated with 985,763Kg, approximately the weight of the RLA-120 Orbital Launch Vehicle... Christopher Hester went the other way with 0.1Kg, and almost 200 people guessed under 10Kg, making us think that perhaps you thought we were asking you to guess the weight of the T3 itself. We weren't, so read more carefully next time! The few sneaky multiple entrants we had were way off with their guesses, so the extended Ridd and Shoemaker families get away with it this time...
The true weight of the custom tool was 305.45Kg.
Our mate Eric (who's been promising us an article for a year now) made the 3rd best guess by multiplying Pi by 100, but luckily we didn't have to rig the results as the winner with 308.8215 Kg was Maarten Vaandrager in the Netherlands. Well done Maarten, your T3 will be on its way to you shortly.
