Denzil Ferreira – Assignment 7 – Automata-Me!

This is a simple automata, that makes a picture (ME!!!) jump back and forward like a crazy man (not that’s not true ahah).

What I used:
– Foam
– Starbucks sticks
– Paper
– Plastic straws

I did try several gears to make an automata, but since I was using straws, it was hard to get the right rigidity for it to work 😦 Anyway, it was a great to fiddle around with hand-made gears and thinking about how to interconnect everything.

A video demo and afterwords the gallery of the steps I took until the final product:
