  1. The Sonic Screwdriver reminds me [in shape] of my first crystal radio – which was shaped like a rocket. Tuning involved sliding the rocket nose up and down, which moved the ferrite core in the transformer coil.
    Which has me wondering: how much of a radio could you fit inside a custom-made Sonic Screwdriver? Would a metal case act as a “shorted turn” for a coil inside?
