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:
– Starbucks sticks
– 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:
