    So? We are talking about a fantastical device aren't we? An ellipse can be drawn with two central points and piece of string. If you can do that, surely some futuristic steam punk scientist could create the intricate gearing to make it work.

    Don't limit yourself or your imagination.

    Don't forget the Double Slider Trammel Ellipse Tracing Linkage (gotta love that name!)

    ...or any of these wacky linkages...

    Only because I see a lot of potential in your entry, and I believe it could be a contender.

    This idea is awesome. I hope you are able to complete it. Honestly I think if you desaturate the colors just a bit in your last version you would have a great inter-stellar traveler's device. That is pretty bad ass.
