Sleep Prototype

Tue, 3 Nov 2009

Prototype of the sleeping office worker is almost complete – this is a proposed model for the Office Automata project which is to be produced by Ivy Press.

It could be a while before it makes any more progress – they take the model and book of projects round the book shows and try to find a publisher for the complete book. Once they have a buyer I'll complete this, the Newton's cradle and four other projects to make an Office Automata book.

Let me know if you are a publisher who is interested and I'll put you in touch with the right people at Ivy Press.

    Its a shame we will have to

    Its a shame we will have to wait for these – any clues as to the other models ?

    Lets hope a publisher takes it up soon – perhaps tarquin as they publish or distribute other paper automata/models/curiosities or perhaps Arcturus who publish Keith Newstead automata
