....was that just a board supported by keno's?....if so any one ells have a problem with that i mean come on if that many keno's can support close to a tun so they say i think it should be closer to like 200 lb's

there were at least 2 dozen kinos under there.

you should assume kinos are designed to work in extremely high gravity environments where people could not go, so it is not outside the realm of plausibility. I think it shows ingenuity and improvisation. They are going to need quirky solutions like that to survive long term.

It was a good idea. The only question I have is... How many Kenos do they have?

Apparently the kinos can support a lot.

And I'm sure Eli got the idea from Marty McFly ;)

i have a feeling there will be nearly unlimited kino's

It is starting to seem that way, there had to be a bunch of them under that sled. Though apparently the SGC had unlimited MALP's, so there is a precedent for unlimited "roving robots."

I'm guessing over 9000

yeah i was thinking there are probably a bunch, sadly we prob ever find out a true number

would be nice to think each ancient could have their own kino, as a way to document their activities, perform experiments in situations not ideal for them, etc...like a wicked sophisticated PDA that goes around with them

Back in the first 'sight' of the kino dispenser, it looked like there was a good number in there, and who knows. There might be more kino dispensers.
And it looked like one of those folding tables they had in the mess hall.

Hmm... how many fricking Ancient Life-Signs Detectors did Atlantis have? Think about that and times it by the amount of plot conveniences they provide and you'll get the answer.

what's next a flying suit powerd by kinos, or maybe maths boy will get fatter by making himself a hover chair and stop walking.

I was thinking his flying comment was a blatant "HOVERBOARD! FINALLY!" moment any serious nerd worth his salt would be drooling over trying.

Love that kino board idea. can also be used as stretcher too. Very nice.

can the kinos push Destiny 360 degrees toward earth? thinking ............ :tealc:

you mean 180 degrees. 360 would put them in the same direction

That is what it looked to me. I don't think two men manage to dig two tons of ice though. When they said a ton I think it was just figuratively.

thekillman

ice can be heavy, and it's approximately 1 kg per liter. what they put on the bord was maybe a few hundred liters.


Young: How much can it carry
Eli: i dont know, maybe a tonne. more than you two can carry.

I loved the pad:) I wish someone could invent something akin to that on earth..:D

Talk about possibility for commercial application:D

There's a difference, since Earth could manufacture MALP's, they can easily replace them. We also know they are sent back afterward, from episodes like Within the Serpent's Grasp and Urgo which are the first two which come to mind, so even if it's limited, they can still operate perfectly fine.

Who knows, maybe the Destiny can also manufacture them, or they just have a massive supply.

i imagine destiny has a couple hundred adn it looked like two layers of them under the board

Greers flame thrower was cool also

Can't help but have MacGyver come to mind, cause that floating carrier sure was a MacGyver move :)

actually I would have rather Young leave Scott in the cravassssss and bring in the ice!

Yeah, the ship probably makes them itself somehow.

thekillman
October 31st, 2009, 10:56 AM
seeing the size of these Kino's, they probably have a few hundred. even then, it wouldn't take up that much space compared to the total size of the Destiny

The Destiny
October 31st, 2009, 12:09 PM

"Well done Mathboy, you've turned the ship around!"
- "erhm, actually the kino's are more plothole-powerfull than I thought."
"What are you saying Eli?"
-"We're rotating another 180 degrees"
"Well, turn it a third 180 degrees"
-"We can't because [enter inconvenient plot here]"


The board did have a convenient edge on the underside to prevent the kino's from slipping away.

Agreed Eli seems to be one of the faveriotes in the show next to Rush and James (and slowly Greer). The only ones people don't seem to like are Scott and Chloe, which is sad because the lead characters are supposed to be the most liked (Sheppard and O'Niel).

If you look at folding tables (well the legs fold) they all seem to have those under edges...

Scott and Chloe are definatly not the leads

how many kino's would it take to make a hover board? Eli should put to link kino on the bottom of a board and then he could fly on planet or surf.

strap kinos to your boots and make rollablades.

Judging by the number of Kinos and the weight they can carry could Eli of not just welded a handle to one, flown it to the crevasse and pulled Scott out?

thekillman
November 1st, 2009, 05:10 AM
they can carry perhaps 200-300 kg. the amount of kino's was insane, like 20-30. that would allow each kino to lift 10 kg.

It didn't look that easy to manouevre. Also it wouldn't have fitted into the crevasse and as it has no form of propulsion you would still have had to pull Scott out, the Kinos would not have been able to pull scott out, when Scott and Young moved the hoverboard they were pushing it themselves so you would still have to pull him out yourself.

what's next a flying suit powerd by kinos, or maybe maths boy will get fatter by making himself a hover chair and stop walking.

With ten or fifteen kinos attached to a enviro suit maybe they could pull it off.

I was waiting for something like that to happen too.. Have Young tie the rope around the floating pad, then order the kino's to lift.

They can't be controlled by remote from Eli said so you can't command them to lift, they will only hover at the height they are at.

I think that was mainly to do with the number as you can control one but not twenty at the same time.

They didn't seem that easy to maneuver. I don't think that it would work.

Nice find! Now all Eli needs is to find a high back chair, strap lots of kinos under them and float around like some overload.

And you should be getting fatter with decreased gravity, although it's obvious Destiny has artificial gravity generators, whos to say it's set at Earth's 9.8G, could be any number.

destiny took off from earth, one would assume they would be using earth level gravity, if not a little stronger so people are prepared to higher gravity planets.
