Completed Newton’s Cradle

Wed, 4 Nov 2009

Colour version of the Newton's cradle, you can just make out the drive linkage on the top of the rear hanger of the centre ball.

I've now boxed this up with the Sleep model and sent it to the folks at Ivy Press. Finger's crossed for a positive outcome.

As I mentioned before, this is part of a proposed book called Office Automata, or some such. Other models in the book, should it come to fruition, could include a desktop trebuchet or catapult, a smartie/m&m dispenser, a yes/no decision maker and perhaps a model of a person banging their head on their desk. (I remember staff meetings)

I'll be doing a bit of web work next then a new downloadable model. Woo hoo!

    hi rob i know this is an old

    hi rob i know this is an old post but i think this model and the other models like the sleeping worker  are great and i dont think the book was ever made

    so does the publisher own the rights to these projects? and is there anyway for us to get them?
