Brad Litwin creates exquisite miniature hand-cranked kinetic sculptures from cardboard and "a few bits of wood, metal, or plastic." They're $45/each or $35 as a kit. Mechanicards
Absolutely Wonderful, as a fan(and creator)of kinetic works myself, these are charming.
These, and his earlier mechanical creations, are awesome. I would love to see them come with educational materials explaining the tech constructs (gears, etc) behind them. Maybe as instructables or thingiverse works, but with more background.
Hmmm, is there a site for such works? (instructables + science/tech learning materials behind the project)
thanks for posting this.
Bradley Litwin is also a fine musician. That’s him playing guitar and singing on the soundtrack to the video of his great little sculptures.
Does the sound track come with the card purchase? I didn’t think so.
Well, I sure would like to purchase the music to assist my enjoyment of these fantastic devices!
Thank you for the feel good.
How cool! Thanks!
It’s hard not to buy them all then fantasize about my heirs taking them to the Antiques Road Show in a hundred years.
wow, they’re like some sort of steampunk DS…
