In this video, Patelo hand-machines all the parts for "the world's smallest" V-12 engine, then assembles it and runs it. It's a remarkable feat of machining and engineering, and by the 5 minute mark, I was basically cheering and dancing around the room with delight as the motor started running.
El motor V-12 más pequeño del mundo. (Thanks, Fipi Lele!)
I write books. My latest is a YA science fiction novel called Homeland (it's the sequel to Little Brother). More books: Rapture of the Nerds (a novel, with Charlie Stross); With a Little Help (short stories); and The Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow (novella and nonfic). I speak all over the place and I tweet and tumble, too.
