Turn the handle on the geared scotch yoke mechanism and the central shaft moves up and down – slowly. The mechanism was designed as the drive for a whale automata. The mechanism is complete, and coming very soon to the website. Next step, I’ll be designing the whale. As an experiment, I’m going to live stream the design process over Instagram. Follow me at @robivescom and you will be able to watch as I endeavor to make a paper whale!
I’ll be live streaming at 2pm GMT on Wed 12th June. See you there!
