DIY CO2 Magnetic Stirring Accessory

So, I was dinking around looking for DIY projects... and I found this link to a DIY magnetic stirring apperatus.

It combines magnets, and an adjustable speed computer fan to create a mixing plate.

It just struck me, that this might be an interesting experiment for you DIY CO2 folks, who are tired of 'shaking the yeast'.

Conceivably, you could set this up with a timing mechanism... say goes off for 2 minutes once every 24 hours (or you could do a little research to see what would be best for yeast in general). Might help the yeast to last a bit longer without fiddling?

Thoughts?

Warning, this link goes to a psychedelic shroom cultivation page... so I don't think it's a great idea to check this out at work. =]

Actually, this might serve a pretty good purpose. I don't know about the DIY C02 idea, but people have questioned how to keep the Auto-Doser mixture mixed up--Well, here's a solution!

I use the air-pump driven auto-doser, so the air mixes everything up. But for those using the powerhead system.....here ya go.
