Let's make the world move! Ok, maybe it already moves. Let's HELP it move, with artsy-fartsy moving things of wonder. Combine technology, new and old, creativity, humor and genius and let 'er RIP! Mar 25

The Great Wall O' Gizmos
Workshop Shed Back in Nov 2012 I backed a project on Kickstarter for a small Arduino like microcontroller system called "Smartduino" which I hoped to use for an internet connected humidity monitor. About this time last year I was expecting to see it delivered. I'm still waiting, which even by Kickstarter standards is a long time.

How to Build a Marble Machine The centerpiece for this marble machine are the gears. They lift dozens of marbles at a time and send them down an amazing track of twists and turns. At first glance I thought this creation was some sort of wooden gear clock. The only thing that gave it away was the fact there were no hands on the face, not to mention it was missing numbers.

What geek or steampunk enthusiast isn't gear-happy? Gears aren't just functional, they have a beauty all their own. Maybe you've seen the marvelous stencils and vinyl gear stick-ons for your wall. Take it to the next level and decorate with something that actually moves with that satisfying "chunkatootha" sound no less! Kinetic Wall Art Large Wooden Gears by Whystler on Etsy

KMODDL - Kinematic Models for Design Digital Library KMODDL is a collection of mechanical models and related resources for teaching the principles of kinematics--the geometry of pure motion. The core of KMODDL is the Reuleaux Collection of Mechanisms and Machines, an important collection of 19th-century machine elements held by Cornell's Sibley School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering.

home Artist Nemo Gould (A.K.A. “nemomatic”) is a compulsive collector of things, and builder of all sorts. All of his work is made from found materials which he gathers from around his Oakland, CA studio. These Assemblage works can be described as “Kinetic Sculpture” or “Automata”. These terms refer to art which incorporates motion, light, sound, and interactivity with the viewer. Recurring themes of robots, creatures, and vehicles reveal the artist’s love of science fiction, mechanical design, and the generally bizarre.
twentysevengears home Not very pretty, I know. But this is a proof of concept for a mechanical liquid measuring/dispensing device. You know what that means: cocktails.
