Interactive Ruben's tube prototype Mark I.

Aaron and I started work on a prototype of an interactive Ruben's tube that we're thinking of proposing en masse for next year's Austin First Night. The The lessons for tonight were: 1) Yes, PVC is quite flammable at propane temperatures. 2) The speaker needs a tight seal or it catches on fire 3) It needs a diffuser because the pressure ends up too high on one end. 4) Metal tape doesn't work because the glue melt and ignites 5) Need a longer tube 6) MSVC 9.0 infuriatingly has an issue with DirectX 8.0 SDK headers.
