Bringing Mechanisms to Life Poster

I have a limited number of these posters which would be perfect for the design technology classroom or workshop.

The posters are A2 in size (420 x 594 mm – 16.5 x 23.4 in) and are laminated in plastic making them very durable. The posters have information on mechanisms and how they are used in automata. They feature pictures of kits from the Flying Pig website.

Hammerbot – Come and get it!

Turn the handle and the Hammerbot remorselessly hammers anything in its path. This hammering robot uses a four bar linkage to create an interesting motion driven by a turning crank.

Members can download and make this intriguing mechanism for free, non-members can download the file for £2.50
